    -Black belt in TKD
    -Former Amateur World Association of Kickboxing organizations champion.
    -Spinning back kick kos

    This is a step up with it comes to striking. Siver is arguably the best pure striker in the FW division after Aldo. Good test for McGregor if he is looking KO Siver.

    Siver wouldn't even beat Poirier.

    Lol Siver isn't a top 5 striker in the division.

    "On paper" being the key phrase, you're not wrong.

    Unfortunately that means exactly jack and shit when it comes to MMA.

    I hope this isn't some strange attempt to inflate Connor's likely win. Sort of the way history is rewritten. Everyone knows this is should be a mismatch and if Connor wins, no one will be surprised.

    Won't matter if Connor connects w/ his back of head salvos IE Poirier.

    Siver is gonna wreck McGoober. All of that flashy style is going to be of no help.

    Aldo isn't a pure striker. He came from BJJ.

    True. But McGregor will spark him up regardless.
