    mod edit.. around 1 hour 46 minutes.

    Shots fired. Good interview from the mma hour today.

    He also talks about the Mendes fight saying it takes a ton of energy and conditioning/training to implement a wrestling attack. You can't roll off the couch and implement a wrestling attack against a guy on 10 days notice.

    I have a feeling he was talking about Aldo when he was talking about the BJJ background stuff. Which is probably true. I don't think I saw Aldo doing any takedown/submission drills in the locker room before the fight.

    Conor could look at Eddie and he would be KO'd. Not sure why he's talking.

    Sounds like a man who clearly wants no part of McGregor.

    Eddie could definitely wrestle fuck Conor.

    McGregor is so overrated on these boards I finally realized it's not just trolling anymore. Sherdog acts as if Conor has GOAT stand up.

    Even if I am wrong and rda beats Conor, even if he then loses to Khabib and then Ferguson... Eddie still gets smashed IMO.

    Probably not as simple as Aldo was for Conor!

    I know exactly how Eddie feels about grapplers that abandon their skillsets... Nick Diaz and BJ Penn are the very first two to come to mind. Excellent grapplers, rarely ever use it.

    Eddie would be an easier fight for RDA than Conor is.

    Trying to justify his own wall-n-stall tactics as "smart"

    maybe. he gets hit a decent amount and Conors got big power, but he's also got good wrestling and could possibly smother Conor. I could see it going either way, unless Conor shows us his TDD is much better than we think against RDA.

    Im guessing he sees RDA vs Conor the same as him vs Pettis? Wrestlefucking a striker.

    Don't forget about Rampage, Hendo, Nelson, Rashad and the list goes on.

    All guys with wrestling/BJJ background that just try to knock people out.

    Rashad didn't even go for 1 takedown against Machida and lost his belt because of it.
