    “I was not phased by his power at all,” Van Heerden said. “I’ve been in the ring with a lot of guys that can hit, and I’ve been hit way harder by guys wearing 16-ounce gloves and head gear on. I was not phased, so it’s difficult for me to say what his power is like because honestly, I was not phased.”

    My note: I think McGregors "power" is a result of his precision and timing to, hes very precise when he hits with the MMA gloves.. and the angles he creates when he hits. the opponent stays mostly more "vulnerable" when he hits. example the aldo fight. he cant do that with boxing gloves how he can do it with MMA gloves. so a head gear will take away the precision but i can understand that his "raw power" isnt that high for a boxer.

    Khabib is a MMA fighter to and can fight another raw grapplers in grappling.
    Conor is a boxer-striker in MMA but he cant compete with raw boxers in boxing.

    i think its interesting.

    I don't think so. A novice boxer would not destroy Conor McGregor. I don't like Conor but lets not get a little crazy here.

    Snitching pays $1500. Apple polishing pays $15,000.

    Everyone that's not stupid knows that McGregor is a totally overrated loser promoted and propped up by the UFC hype machine. McGregor would get TKO/subbed by almost every fighter in the lightweight top 10.

    Why do you think Conor hides from fighting. He even knows he’s overrated.

    Mostly because elite boxers box, they make money doing it.

    Elite grapplers fight MMA because they can't make legit money grappling.

    I've always said that the best MMA fighters would be fighters who learn to box from a very early age up until their mid 20s while learning TDD and BJJ defense along the way.

    Conor went from a karate fighter to a boxer around the Aldo fight

    Idk I think that's an exaggeration. I've seen pros just getting their careers started that look like absolute shit. Conor isn't as bad as people make him out to be. His biggest issue is cardio

    True
    And that's probably why he doesn't fight anymore.

    Van Heerden never was a "teamate" of Conor. McGregor went to his gym to spar with him.

    That dude fought Errol Spence and other pretty legit boxer and I guess that he trained with some pretty legit one as well.

    Of course Conor doesnt hit as hard as them and its way tougher to catch a good boxer with a clean shot than an mma fighter. No knock on Conor, he's a pretty legit fighter but its 2 different world

    Van Heerden would get embarrassed by McGregor in the Octagon and I hate to sound like a Nuthugger, by why people continue to say he doesn't hit hard despite being in 16oz gloves and wearing head gear is a mystery to me. 4oz gloves are as close as it gets to the knuckles and bones and is a more accurate way to measure how hard he hits, and from the looks of it

    When he connects clean, they fall, I'd love to see Van Heerden take the shots Nate, and Eddie took and still stand.

    It's impossible for Sherdog to say anything good or bad about Conor McGregor without being a little bit crazy.

    The key is not his power, it's his ability to throw punches with great precision they don't see coming. However, a pro boxer will see those punches coming, diminishing the "shock" power.
