Conor McGregor before UFC 205

Conor McGregor will look to make history at UFC 205 when he goes up against lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez to try and be the first ever to hold two UFC belts at the same time. His striking coach Owen Roddy spoke about how he believes the highly anticipated bout will play out, and much like his pupil, he exudes confidence.

“No disrespect to Alvarez, he is a great fighter and stuff, but he does move similar to a lot of people that Conor has fought,” Roddy told Submission Radio. “And even when Conor’s fought strikers, they all become that type of fighter. When Conor lands, you become a panicked wrestler, and that’s what’s going to happen.”
