    Stephen Thompson says Conor McGregor would be wise to avoid a return to welterweight.

    Winning two UFC belts might not be enough for Conor McGregor.

    The Irishman beat then-light champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to become the concurrent featherweight and lightweight champ and has hinted at pursuing the welterweight title in the past. McGregor was even temporarily handed Tyron Woodley’s 170 lbs belt when he beat Alvarez in the main event, perhaps hinting at sign of things to come.

    Top-ranked welterweight contender Stephen Thompson, though, who fought champ Woodley to a draw on the same night McGregor beat Alvarez, thinks ‘The Notorious’ would get thrown around ‘like a little rag doll’.

    Problem you have is woodley likes that back to the cage offense and Conor likes people to cower and put their back against the cage......Conor by ko against woodley because he's going to connect.....

    Wonderboy is a tougher fight for Conor and that's a toss up, "pick 'em" fight.......

    Conor would KO Woodley IMO but struggle with Thompson.
