The ZOmbie would be cannon fodder on the feet for Conor.

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.

Any takers?
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.

So he jumps Cub Swanson? A guy with bigger wins against much better guys?

A lot of people discounting Kz's striking. He is very very very good standing hits like a truck is one of the most durable fighters in the division and has the edge if the fight hits the mat and also has one of the best fight IQ's in the div atm.

Conner is great no doubt but I don't think he has gone through the sort of blast furnaces KS has.

I would love to see this fight for sure. Keen to see Kz vs mendes for the interm belt more though.
