Here is my analysis on how this fight goes down, feel free to bump this if Aldo proves me wrong (he won't). Why McGregor wins: 1. Size difference: McGregor is 175cm and reach of 74 inches. Aldo is 170 cm and 70 inch reach. Aldo is used to fighting smaller guys like Edgar, Mendes, Swanson etc. and hasn't faced someone of the physical size of McGregor. McGregor will be towering over Aldo and he first to the jab/straight. Dennis Siver is also 170cm ... same height at Aldo, just to use him as an image of what it will be like. 2. Speed: A lot of people on here say that Aldo is faster ... NO he ain't. McGregor's speed is incredible, even in slow motion, he is moving so fast. He moves like Neo from the Matrix. 3. Strength: No other featherweights hit with the same power as McGregor. Poirer got rekt in the first round and Poirer went 4 rounds with KZ and proven to be robust and resilient, as has Siver, who is also notoriously difficult to put away. 4. Confidence: The biggest weapon of McGregor is his self-belief. He is fearless and doesn't fear Aldo at all. He is going to land on Aldo and take him apart. Aldo is already losing the psychological game by "refusing to get in the octagon" and using the lame "Conor didn't win within 2 minutes" "moral victory" line in his interviews (as if that is even a legit put down) "Haha, you didn't KO your opponent in the first 2 minutes!, you suck!" SMH ... 5. Movement McGregor is a master of human movement, he is in and out of the pocket, cutting angles. He is constantly changing up his stances and is just a free style fighter. His style is impossible to replicate and for Aldo to find training partners that can emulate his style. McGregor can find training fighters to emulate Aldo's size and stance ... McGregor is going to be better prepared to handle Aldo, than Aldo is to handle McGregor. Most of the people that say Aldo wins is by "leg kicks" and "take downs" ... Aldo ain't going to be able to take Conor down, period. Aldo has strong leg kicks and McGregor may eat a few, but it won't be enough to stop him. By the time the leg kicks start doing any damage, Aldo is going to be a bloody mess. To conclude (and to quote the band Daft Punk), McGregor is bigger, better, faster, stronger than Aldo. How the fight will go: Aldo comes out, but Conor keeps the range, moving in and out of the pocket and landing at will. Starts to bloody Aldo up in the first, like he did to Siver. Aldo lands a couple of punches and kicks here and there, but they don't phase McGregor. As the damage builds up on Aldo, he is going to panic and start to commit more to his punches and kicks, leaving himself open to counters ... McGregor is then going to step back and start landing heavy counters ... rocking the champion and bringing him down. I predict a 2nd or 3rd round TKO for McGregor. Bookmark this. I will and I will bring it back up when McGregor is champion.
