    Conor McGregor at 170 would fare even worse than Benson Henderson at 170.

    I think he'll defy the laws of physics and beat him in negative minutes. Ko at -1:30.

    For a guy who claims to deal with facts and reality Kavanagh is coming off as really delusional. Especially where he talks about Conor dominating in 3 weight classes.

    If he became the first 3 weight UFC Champion, that would mean he was a pretty good fighter.

    Conor trains ten rounds in a row against increasingly heavy fighters, each of his opponents gets one round then the next guy steps in. He's trained with Gunnar Nelson many many times. He could fight at Welterweight easily.

    So his Aldo strategy is to get him on the back foot? He thinks he would be uncomfortable there, apparently.

    Has he ever watched Aldo fight?

    Also, he would get tossed around at WW. Depending on how his grappling looks when actually tested, he could have some success at LW. This guy comes across as a little delusional IMO.
