    I was thinking the other day.. We say that a guy like Conor has not any TD at all, Mendez took him down easily bla bla bla. Isn't it easier for a shorter guy to take down a taller guy? I think that Mendez as a shorter fighter with excellent takedowns has the ability to reach quicker to Connor's leg, so less reaction time for McGregor.

    But if he fights a fighter with the same height or taller the reaction to the takedown will be much better in my opinion so a different result. Maybe not and his TD defence sucks generally. What do you think?

    I’d say he doesn’t have to worry about it for now. Not like we’re going to see Diaz shooting for double legs.
