DID CONOR MCGREGOR PROVE HIMSELF?
Los Angeles, CA-The much-discussed Conor McGregor (18-2) got the biggest win of his career against Chad Mendes (17-3) on Saturday night, but just how much did it mean? Mendes took the fight on about two weeks notice and seemed to gas out after about a round, but Conor was able to capitalize on the situation and defeat his opponent by TKO 2 at 4:57 of round two.
MENDES OWNED CONOR WHILE GRAPPLING
Mendes is one of the best wrestlers in the featherweight (145 lb.) division and was able to take McGregor down 3 times on 4 attempts. He was unable to avoid the thunderous left hand of the Irishman, which connected and dropped him before McGregor landed a few more to bring a swift end to the contest.
DID MENDES PEN BLUEPRINT ON BEATING CONOR?
McGregor did not look so great on the ground, but was able to weather the storm and landed several hard body kicks to wear down the tough Mendes. Frankie Edgar (19-4-1) may be a fighter who can exploit Conor’s grappling deficiencies.
