Cowboy will head kick KO McGregor, or sub him.


I really hope that's the way it ends

Cowboys the better grappler but even if he wanted to he’s not going to wrestlefuck him.

Id guess that even if Cerrone was planning on  mixing it up a lot he’d struggle to get a takedown early, if/when he got taken down I could see him landing a few shots before Conor creates a scramble, it’s not going to look like the Khabib fight 

If Conor gets taken down, he better get his back to the fence and work his way back up cautiously. Cowboy is real tricky in a scramble

How desperate does this plea come across to the rest of you? MMA fighter begs other MMA fighter to only use boxing in an MMA match. Smh.. Dana already paying Cowboy off, and McGregor still begging Cowboy to take it easy on him. That’s a shitty look for the UFC.

It's pretty sad. Especially since we've all seen Connor turn into a panic wrestler. Same would happen in this fight if he eats a shin to the chin.

Do you actually think McGregor cares if somebody shoots on him?  I doubt it. No way he's worried about Cowboy's wrestling, he can defend takedowns.

 Cowboy just needs to reply -

“Reverse psychology? Wrestling it is!”

Whether he cares or not, it was still a dumb thing for Conor to say. Seems like more than 95% of people on here think it was a bitch move and I’m sure it’s the same outside this forum. Definitely a bad look and does not inspire confidence

Somehow I think this one is going to come back on Conor in this fight.

That's his way of saying "please don't take me down"...

Where did this 95% number come from? was there a survey?  There's the thread title and the what McGregor actually posted.  McGregor took a potshot at Cowboy on social media. In terms of being a bad look, we are talking about the guy who put a dolly through a bus window, this is small potatoes.
