    He seems to know very specific facts about them, the name of their kids, their extracurricular activities, their team mate's information. Anyone suspect that McGregor has his own espionage team?

    Nothing more than scanning wiki's and social media. If he doesn't do it himself he probably has some close associates that dig up dirt to use as mental warfare.

    Id wager he didnt know what a cholo was before he knew he was fighting Nate. He clearly finds out a little so he can work it in to his trash talk which i have no problem with and is v smart imo.

    The gun signs and balloon animals line for example was definitely rehearsed and was v funny.

    Good man Conor.

    Nate held up ok too.

    everyone in the world know jake and giblert are with diaz brothers, and those weren't the names of rda's kids; he was making fun of RDA for living in america so he picked out "american" names.

    this thread sucks

    I believe he lurks on Sherdog. Everyone was talking about Aldo's anytime anywhere comment on here yesterday and boom Conor mentions during the presser. For all we know he could be TS.

    Of course he does, he just says he doesn't. Theres a reason he landed such a clean shot on Aldo which is exactly what he was practicing in the locker room beforehand

    Made me laugh when he made it out as if Dos Anjos' named his kids with American names.

    McGregor is the one that spends all his money in America. Lives in America. Trains in America. Conrad McGregor is the traitor.

    There is an interview from a long time ago where he names the height and reach of all the top guys at 155. He quoted the gate and attendance figures of Frankie and Chad's previous fights (off by a few dollars). He knows his stuff. He does do research and he watches their fights.

    He might. Would be smart of him to have one.

    Almost as believable that you have one account on here. Seriously, what's going on with you, brah?

    It's called due diligence. Any good business-person practices this... and we know McGregor fancies the money.

    His Irish home, cars and training camps would say different. When he does go to the US, he brings his training partners from home with him. So you're factually incorrect.

    He's not talking about just the fight.

    He mentioned how Conor seems to know personal info about his opponent's. Their kid's names, their extra-curricular activities and info on their teammates. Would explain how Conor was able to predict Aldo pulling out of the first fight and the Dillashaw/Alpha Male situation.

    He always seems to be in the USA when on the vlogs.

    Would explain how Conor was able to perfectly predict the path of the Dillashaw/Alpha Male situation and Aldo pulling out of the first fight.
