Conor is a beast but so is Lamas. I'd give Conor the striking advantage but that's about it. If Conor thinks he's ready for the wolves let'em get a reality check.

Lamas Ftw, Av bets ready without question.

Lamas is no Andy Ogle or Max Holloway, even though I do like Max.

He's 25 with 1 fight in the ufc. I think he needs to slow down a bit. Brimage then Holloway is a good step up. Let his name grow and get as much experience as possible. I'm not entirely sold yet but he could have a lot of potential.

His striking is legit like most Brits. You stand with the likes of Mills, Daley, Bisping, Hardy then you really are picking the longest and hardest route to victory.

McGregor will be no different. Yes he might look on fire right now but who against?
European competition. In this point in his career he needs to pack his bags and head out to train at AKA or ATT or else he'll just become another guy to get a reality check when he's lying on his back with a good wrestler on top of him.

There is no doubt he is a beast standing and if he clips you you'll be in a world of hurt but I think Lamas would destroy him at this point in his career and he could probably do it inside one round.

I like his confidence though and can understand why he's calling out Lamas as Lamas is well known and on a tear. But he is picking his opponents, he picks Lamas, a guy who's been finished twice with punches, instead of someone who's a nightmare for him such as Lentz/Bermudez.

DFW isn't doing ol' Connie Mac any favors letting him roll deep in Ferrari's and shit with him.

MacGregor blew me away in his debut, and likely many others. But let the guy get some more fights. I seem to remember Paulo Thiago getting an impressive finish in his debut, we know how his story is going.

I agree
Mcgregor fought very tall against Brimage. I would think that firmly planted front foot would look like a steak for a guy like Lamas.

why don't you beat someone of relevance before calling out one the top in the division?

(copied from every other thread about relative unknowns calling out top of the division)

Khabib has business calling out top guys at LW, McGregor does not at FW.

jae_1833 » Posted 7/19/07 11:27:00AM

Got to love his ambition, my only issue is that this fight is a lose - lose situation for Lamas. I think Lamas is positioned right there with the likes of Swanson and Mendes...Conor just isn't yet. Now if he could take a fight and win against Poirer, Koch, Siver then I would understand because those are big name guys that aren't in the triangle of death that the FW division has at #2. Lastly, I too want to see him fight against a good wrestler. If they give it to him then I actually do hope that Lamas puts him on queer street and humbles him a bit with some solid GNP.

Much like most European fighters, the second a good wrestler gets a hold of him, he is not getting back up and won't have any answers off of his back.

Av bet anyone


Im telling you, this guy is the real deal. I can feel it
