Mediocre is harsh language, but the UFC is definitely milking the Conor hype train with all the FS1 promos and floating the title shot idea in Dublin no less.
If McGregor has the foresight to match the bravado, he's addressing his wrestling and takedown defense in particular. Similar to Gustafsson training with a top-notch wrestler like Davis knowing the "Bones" fight was looming. Aldo, Mendes, and Frankie are all capable of putting "KoD" on his back. McGregor's only 2 losses are by submission, albeit much earlier in his career. Conor allegedly just received his brown belt in BJJ, but let's be honest, he's not out-grappling the likes of Aldo, Cub, Edgar, or Lamas.
