Both can finish at any given time and are as dynamic as anyone - McGregor more so on the feet whereas Bäckström in the clinch and on the ground.
I'm a fan of both fighters, but I think McGregor would win before stepping into the octagon. Not that I don't rate Bäckström, I do, but McGregor seems to always have an edge on emotional guys. Bäckström is very emotional.
After McGregor's debút in Sweden, I remember Reza Madadi heaping praise on him and inviting him to his gym to train. Wouldn't it be strange to invite a guy who's inferior to your teammate, yet in the same weight class? Maybe that's me overthinking it though.
