To quote GSP, “I was not impressed with his performance.” I pointed out before Conor’s fight with Nate Diaz, that Conor, like a Jon Jones, would have a problem with longer, rangier guys.
Conor McGregor has been used to being the bigger, taller fighter with the longer arms from competing at 145. There was no need to correct certain mistakes that would get him beaten buy bigger guys or even average boxers his size.
The things I mentioned are all things to be worked on when, as in this case, punches are not flying at you at full velocity. Conor will still have a problem in a mma bout with longer, rangier fighters and in a boxing bout with ANY boxer that has mastered the basics, has decent head movement, and displays ring generalship.
