    Three months of hype, this better be good.

  • wer

    McGregor – 5’9″, 74″ reach – natural LW
    Mendes – 5’6″, 66″ reach – natural BW
    Conor’s 11% reach advantage here is equal to the one Jones had over Machida. Those guys are 2 divisions apart in size.

    • Muaythai4life

      Mendes is a wrestler though which is the great equalizer for this one. I’m not saying the reach won’t be a problem, but if Mendes scores take downs then McGregor’s reach is next to worthless. (Yes, I do know length can help a lot with BJJ).

    • Hurricane Polk

      He is the Jon Jones of the 145 pounders. A glorified midget killer. I want to see him move up to 155 where there are some monsters waiting.

  • Sikes

    At least Connor will actually get a real # 1 contender’s fight. If Connor manages to beat Mendez, then he’ll have my well deserved attention or else he’ll just be exposed as an overhyped loud mouth snook LOL I hope Chad shuts him up for good!

    • Groinstrike

      He’ll have your well deserved attention???? I’m sure Connor will be overjoyed to hear that some random kid on the internet will be paying attention to him. I mean his woman is smoking hot, he’s making millions, and is loved by millions of people but your attention will really make him happy.

        Lmfao that was funny dude

  • moodyledzep71

    Mendes has ko power that Coner has to take seriously, But i think Conor has the advantage and will win

    • reallynotagain

      I’m with ya, Mendes has great power and not to be underrated….Should be interesting…

      • moodyledzep71

        Conner is taller and has more skills but one chad Mendes overhand right ….nite nite

  • Omer Ulkay
