Conor McGregor, once both the featherweight and lightweight UFC champion of the entire universe, has fallen on tough times as of late.
In the days since he embarrassed and dominated the legendary Eddie Alvarez, then refused to let the show to continue until SOMEBODY BROUGHT HIM HIS SECOND BELT, McGregor has *checks notes* lost one fight in a row. (Not counting court cases, boxing matches and historical debates).
In the “what have you done for me lately” world of MMA, that, of course, means he’s washed beyond hope and belief. MMA Junkie recently came up with a list of 15 fighters who could beat him fair and square in a no holds barred cage fight.
But I’m not so convinced he has nothing left to give. With the ‘Proper !’ training and focus, along with six months of sprawl / brawl training, it’s possible he might find a way to work his way off the Fight Pass prelims again.
What follows is a list of 10 fighters I’m pretty sure he could, maybe, beat. Please feel free to disagree in the comments, assuming this site has comments.
Elizeu dos Santos
Cody Stamann (rematch)
Cain Velasquez (Assuming Ronda can help)
Good luck Conor!
