Could Siver grind this one out on the ground?

    I don't see Siver subbing him personally.

    I could see Siver taking Conor down and grinding on him for a round, but I don't think he can keep it up over 5.

    So a guy was taken down and submitted on 2010, therefore that is his weakness in 2015. And the guy that has to do it is someone who makes his pay by grinding out standup fights.

    Dont see that working out

    I've been a big Siver fan since I saw his fight with Spencer Fischer. Really wished he didn't run into Cerrone at 155. He's a skilled fighter, but he doesn't have the speed and cardio to deal with the best at 145, I think Conor is gonna stop him.

    This^^^^^^^^^. Even though I'd like nothing more than to see him brutally annihilated to "Steven Hawking's style".

    The Conor from that fight is not the same Conor now. To see his improvement watch this handy video of quirky mma analyst Robin Black breaking down Conor's evolution.

    McGoat (as everyone knows McGregor as) is going to beat this guy Siver... Siver is strong but McGoat is insane

    Jump past MENDES? You mean the guy that literally just lost to the champ? The only fighter that can make a case right now is Frankie. And as much as I like Frankie, I would rather a fresh challenge to the belt before ANOTHER rematch.

    Word. He absolutely crushed Ryan Hall's ribs with a spinning back kick/turning side kick:

    Nah. Siver is huge fw and has legit wrestling/bjj,but look at holloway and brandao fights connor aint bad on the ground himself. Siver also has questionable chin and conor hits hard
    Bad fight for siver. His best chanse could be his spinning back kick or lucky punch

    I hope Siver tries... I'm curious to see how McGregor's take down defense has matured. It's been quite a while since that Guida fight. I have to believe he'd be pretty hard to keep down. Dude is pretty squirrely. It's gonna be fun to watch either way. I think the "McGoat" will do exactly as he predicted. :)

    I honestly think it's his only shot. I know it sounds crazy for a guy who was pretty much known solely for his kickboxing when he debut in the UFC and was able to hurt 155ers standing up, but I think Mcgregor's speed and length will give him problems on the feet. Not to mention Siver seems to have problems with faster opponents.

    Lol. I've been posting too much. I was thinking of Pettis' loss to Guida from another thread. I meant Duffy. It's been quite a while since that.

    That's his bets bet imo, he is not quick enough to strike with Conor so he might as well try and shoot in. If he does get Conor to the ground I think he has the strength to keep him there.

    Conor would out-grapple Siver with relative ease.

    How do you know? It's not like we've seen much of that from him.
