    Just now on MMA hour.

    It's not surprising for a coach to side with his guys, but Henry is not one to talk shit so this is impressive. He says Frankie is a natural 135'er and Conor has fought one guy his size where he came up mega-short.

    His boy couldn't even get past Aldo, Conor should be the least of their worries.

    Aldo can stop a takedown.

    Eddie's head is too big, and too easy to hit

    Frankie and Eddie would be good fights but Edson is way too chinny.

    Yeah, fun-sized Frankie is going to have his way with an opponent that found Aldo's chin in 13 seconds, when he couldn't land a blow of any great significance in 25 minutes of trying.

    I wonder if John Kavanagh would agree with Mark Henry.
     
  12. I'm sure he thought Frankie would beat Aldo as well... Everyone sucks at predicting fights, Mark Henry included.

    Doesn't matter. Its very simple really. These situations play out all the time. There is a strong possibility we could have one of these triangles.

    Conor>Aldo>Edgar>Conor.

    That gif actually makes conor look good lol. Anyway I could see all those guys beating conor, but I could also see them all getting starched in the 1st round with a straigh left .

    He doesn't need to worry about punches the same way Aldo does. Edgar is one of the best wrestlers in the sport. When you get taken down off a single leg by Nate, your TDD is on par with Rousey's Muay Thai.
    This might literally be the only single leg Diaz hits his whole career.

    Doesn't matter, because there's an ever stronger reality that Edgar hasn't done enough to get a fight against McGregor no matter how much shit him or his handlers talk.

    Unfortunately, you keep shifting your argument. But I agree with you on that point (your third point).

    Henry isn't campaigning for the fight or speaking of how Edgar deserves Conor, he simply stating his guys can beat him based on matchups.
