the way mcgregor talks, i assume a loss for him would be absolutely shattering at this point.

I think he'd dominate cub. But we need to see how be handles brabdao. If he goes out and just obliterates him he can do the same to cub I think.

I want to see porier cub 2. I thought Dustin arguably won and he took out on short notice. He deserves another shot Phone Post 3.0

Also, is Cub in London? He thinks he is.

Cub's hands just came around a couple years ago. McGregors hands have been lethal since he got in the game.

McGregor also has better lateral movement and defensive footwork. The angles he cuts to counter are very impressive as are Cubs.

They are both very accurate strikers, but have very different striking styles. McGregor shows little to no setup on his striking. Everything thrown is soft...think Floyds Right over opponents left jab or corss..just placed accurately with force.

Cub throws combos with multiple limbs and uses his footwork to cut angles while he does this. That works very well against power strikers who are often flatfooted and use less footwork than they really should.

I really think Cub is a great fighter and has some of the best standup at 145, but McGregor is just on some other shit at this point in his career...and he is only getting better.

He is Elite...just hasnt proven it against elite guys yet.

Conor is an excellent counter striker. Cub is very aggressive and would get picked apart. McGregor has a speed advantage. Phone Post 3.0

I'm a big Conor fan, but I don't see him winning this fight at this point. I think he loses to Stephens, and cub just convincingly beat him. Phone Post 3.0

I'm on the McGregor bandwagon, but people need to slow down. He has never faced anything even close to the competition Cub has. Let's see how he deals with Brandao first (he will destroy him). Phone Post 3.0
