Except excellent striking and good wrestling you mean?

Good Wrestling???
I think awesome striking, but wrestling has not been tested yet, some serious competition in his class, time will tell

Brandao needs to beware of the King Goat.

McGregor ain't from the UK either, and none of his UFC fights have been in the UK and neither will his next one so I don't know where you're going with that. He has shown a great deal of potential in his most recent fights, it's silly to say otherwise.

Show me an athlete who doesn't hope to go down as an all time great and i'll show you somebody who isn't trying hard enough.

McGregor is just saying what all fighters should be thinking. Anyone who aspires to be a gatekeeper or whose lifetime dream is to be ranked #27 shouldn't even be in the UFC.

If you have a problem with what he is saying you're an idiot.
