    Quote from a John Kavanagh interview before he fought Mendes:

    Source: http://middleeasy.com/fighting/item/15594-john-kavanagh-explains-why-conor-mcgregor-will-whip-chad-mendes-ass


    I'm a huge Conor fan who thinks he's the GOAT and will easily beatdown Jose Aldo.

    But John Kavanagh's dismissal of "American Blast Doubles" (as he derogatorily calls them) is why Conor was grounded for much of his fight with Mendes.

    John, buddy, if you're reading this thread you need to listen the fuck up.

    Who the fuck cares if Chad has "finesse" -- if he can take Conor down at will.

    The eastern European wrestlers who train at SBG Ireland obviously ain't up to American standards -- else Conor wouldn't have been taken down and held down so easily.

    Granted, he was injured before the fight and couldn't train wrestling.

    But it's clear that Conor's wrestling just wasn't good enough to stop Chad's blast doubles, regardless of whether he trained wrestling or not. He also needs to learn to get the fuck up once taken down.

    Got that, John? I'm talking to you, sir.

    SBG Ireland needs to hire top American wrestlers to start training with Conor.

    I really think Conor is being held back by his loyalty to Kavanagh's euro-centric training regimen.

    Lord knows Cathal is being held back by Kavanagh, cuz that mother fucker hasn't improved one iota in his entire UFC tenure.

    I'm beginning to think SBG Ireland is too proud to evolve to the next level of MMA.

    Discuss.

    "Russian wrestling is unequivocally superior. Not only are the athletes tougher, better, and more technical, but even the coaches are smarter and take far better care of their athletes at all levels..."

    Me paraphrasing my HS wrestling coach

    Of course Cavanog will put down American wrestling. It had his boy Conor Mc on his back for most of two rounds looking like a complete novice. Cavanog can have all the elite Russian wrestlers in his camp he wants, they won't help if Conor Mc doesn't work on his wrestling. Then Cavanog can make excuses about his knee injury as to why his wrestling still sucks.

    good but not great American wrestling beat Gunnar 50-44, and I like Gunnar. American wrestling wasn't the problem in this matchup, it was 2 weeks of conditioning

    John is quite incorrect. That boring, predictable double leg will result in a very short tenure for Conor if he does not learn how to defend it. I don't feel the ease with which he was put on his back could be fully attributed to a knee injury. He better no really think that is the truth or he'll be screwing his fighter out of a potential top rate career.

    I'm pretty sure that title belongs to Rafael Cordeiro.

    Lol @ hottest MMA coach, this guy would be just a small notch above a McDojo coach here in the States.


    Besides Connor who has he really developed?

    The shit my ex soviet wrestling coaches taught me at junior school is still some of the best physical training I've done. It was decades ahead of what I even see modern MMA gyms doing now here.

    LOL...first they call Conor "Cloner" now they call coach Kavanagh "Cavanog".

    What will the Shertards come up with next? The wit is incredible.

    Not sure how "Cloner" is a witty slight on Conor Mc.

    I love how you call him "Coach" like he's your coach. AHAHAHHAHA. The sycophantism on sherdog is incredible!!!
