UFC Champion: “Conor McGregor Is A Chicken, Not Even Close To Top Five”

2

Although he knocked out Chad Mendes in two rounds or less as he predicted prior to the fight, because it didn’t go as smoothly as some of his past fights, there are a number of fighters who are under the impression that Conor McGregor got “exposed” at UFC 189. Among them is UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos, who “The Notorious” Irishman has already begun calling out.

During a recent interview, UFC’s 155-pound champion spoke openly about his thoughts on the rising, interim UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor, a rising Irish mega-star who technically only owns one-half of a world championship, as the other half belongs to dos Anjos’s fellow Brazilian, Jose Aldo.

“McGregor’s really scrawny. Aldo would destroy him. He’s not even close to [being ranked in the] top five,” dos Anjos, who won the undisputed UFC Lightweight Championship in a shocking, dominant performance over Anthony Pettis.

In talking with Brazilian media outlet Combate, Rafael dos Anjos continued, “This guy’s no good. Aldo would destroy him. Chad Mendes, if prepared, would destroy him and he showed. I saw McGregor, he’s really scrawny, like a little chicken.”

dos Anjos continued, “Chad Mendes is strong, but not Conor. He was exposed in that fight. That’s who he is. I never saw Chad walking backwards in a fight, he’s always pressuring and a minute in the guy was exhausted.”

From there, dos Anjos revealed the details of a private conversation he was having with Mendes’ teammate — UFC Bantamweight Champion T.J. Dillashaw — as Dillashaw was watching his friend and teammate slowly but surely allow the fight to slip through his fingers. Continue reading more by clicking ahead to page two.
