    Spinning back kick would be awesome considering his opponent.

    He will do a spinning back kick to the body to get inside Siver's head from the very first second.

    It wouldn't be surprising if he did because he likes to do that just to push his opponent back towards the fence so he can immediately take control of the cage.

    He isn't always just trying to land these shots, he has a reason for throwing them. He threw that spin kick against Brandao right away just to push him away so he (Conor) can have control of the cage from the get-go.

    That's Conor's thing - his game is basically to push you towards the fence, give you very little room and then he can move in and out with strikes much easier while his opponent has such little room to escape/make it more difficult to defend.

    If you watch Conor's fights against Holloway, Brandao & Poirier - you will notice that the first thing he does is immediately push them towards the fence and take control of the cage and force them to work. And he also does a hell of a job at keeping his opponent cut off there as well. IMO, Conor cuts the cage off better than anybody on the roster does because he literally doesn't let you off the cage. If his opponent tries to escape, Conor literally jogs back in front of them so they can't get away. You rarely see anybody else do this and he will bait them into counters. He will use that front kick, or spin kick, to make his opponent try to move forward right after so Conor can then counter. He forces them to use their right hand (if they're orthodox, of course) so he can control the lead hand, force you to use the right hand, and he can bait them into it and then he cuts the angle to the left, counters with the left. It's one of his go-to attacks and it has worked wonders for him. The fact Aldo overextends with the right hand so much and sometimes fails to bring his hands back to guard after, I think it will be very interesting vs. Conor.



    This is one of the reasons I think he'll be really successful against Aldo because Mendes' used a lot of forward pressure, was really aggressive and threw tons of combinations. He put Aldo on his heels right away and pushed him towards the fence with strikes and actually landed a lot of good ones and dropped Aldo in the first with a left hook when Aldo, IIRC, overextended with the right hand and failed to bring his hand back to guard, which is something you see a lot of Muay Thai strikers do.



    Sorry for the long, random message.

    Maybe if he actually landed it, he needs to take a lesson from Makdessi on hook kicks, he is much better than McGregor at all kicks.

    He'll start with a tornado kick and finish with a crane kick after Siver sweeps the leg. C'mon guys, it's not that fuckin' hard!

    He will use the DC's defensive kick because Siver is going to attack first.

    Wise words



    I remember the Holloway fight he was actually jogging a few times doing this and clapping his hands goading max to come and throw down,the lead upper cut works a treat for him when he has them back pedaling too.

    Yeah, I see McGregor landing spinning kick all to well on this guy. Watch his fight...he has great short power but Conor is way too good to counter this guy. Conor is way too good imo, but, in a very few moments, he has a chance..but, I doubt he will execute because conor has a great chin.

    Connor should throw kicks to the body. Hes already fighting a shorter opponent who ducks and dips alot during his attacks.
