    I actually think that McGregor's striking style is, in some ways, a factor that might help him when it comes to facing high level wrestlers.

    If we look back to the Robert Whittaker vs Colton Smith fight, we saw a fight that stylistically was a tough one for Whittaker. However, Whittaker kept his lead hand low, ready to get an undertook should Colton shoot. This, combined with a powerful uppercut (which McGregor favours too) and some knees, make for great deterrents.

    McGregor hangs his hands low a great deal, but also likes to throw a whole load of flashy kicks. If he could resist the urge to throw high-risk kicks, he could make for a tough target to take down.

    Pashak doesn't like McGregor due to his watching Leprechaun when he was 8.

    It depends who you are comparing him with.

    And yes, McGregor most likely is going to win this fight. But I do not see him beating the Top fighters, there is a lot of hype around him; maybe because he is Irish, maybe because he has an exciting striking style, maybe because of his motivational quotes.
    But guys as promising as him, we have seen a lot. So far I have seen no reason to consider him a future great. At least he is still young

    My breakdown of the fight:

    Conor is going to kick ass and take a name this weekend.

    he has earned a purple belt in BJJ from his mentor John Kavanagh, which means he will be very hard to finish if the fight hits the canvas
