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.
