    Top UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje has said he wasn’t aware that Conor McGregor was in talks to fight him this July before the Irishman broke his hand.

    McGregor revealed he was “leaning towards a fight with Gaethje” when he spoke with ESPN earlier this month. In the interview, the former two-weight world champion also addressed an incident in which he struck a man at a pub in Ireland back in April, something Gaethje said he wants to “punch” McGregor for.

    ”That was the first time I heard that,” Gaethje said of the proposed fight with McGregor. “I was training for a fight, he broke his hand early. So I think even before it would have gotten to me he broke his hand and it didn’t…

    LOL
    that is actually a pretty funny call out

    Conor could sign the waiver and he would have a guaranteed stand up fight

    Against a guy that he could definitely land punches on.

    I think Justin would overwhelm Conor but not before Conor landed many big shots.

    I think justin wins also
    Conor would have to get serious and lay off the proper 12 and "crack"

    I do know he isn't gonna fight a guy who favors groundwork and actually looks to put the fight on the mat. Justin is perfect for a target if he wants one...but nobody really wants to fight Justin. I doubt the guys that beat him want to fight him ever again.

    This thread is on crack too. With all due respect, Justin is one of the most hit fighters in the company.

    Yes
    that is my point
    He has yet to show he wants it on the mat regardless of how the standup battle is going...perfect for a guy who prefers standup and has inferior ground skills(aka Conor)

    I obviously cannot speak for him, but I've always figured that was how he wants to test himself. And I respect him for it. I don't agree with it. But fuck if he dontwannause his wrestling that's up to him.

    He takes them to give them. The questions in my mind are; Can he hit Conor. Can he take Conor's power. Can Conor get into good enough condition to have a war with Justin and survive?

    Conor is just a big question mark right now. I suspect he will never be the prime Conor that stormed 145 and then 155. His motivation is gone now that he achieved his goals.

    Justin is hittable but can take a hard shot, McGregor has shown he has little power at LW.

    McGregor has never been in a war and survived, he would have to be on his bike big time, similar to the 2nd Diaz fight.

    One win at 155 is not storming the division.

    Do we really know that?

    Regardless of what weight the actually fought Diaz at, Nate has always had a great ability to take shots and he was dropped and busted up by Conor.

    Conor melted Eddie Alvarez with clean shots.

    And then he was ridden like a cheap hooker by Khabib.


    He has good power at 145 or 155 but it's a lot like Anderson's power. Right place, right time instead of just pure hell fire dead with one shot kind of power.

    I've read that he prefers striking because with his pace it's easier to keep up

    The Eddie fight proved his power doesn't translate to me, amazing finish but it took far too many shots to put him away, Eddie is also fairly chinny and gets dropped every other shot he absorbs.

    yep that is what is crazy
    everybody lands on him...but most end up losing
    he is beatable, but it is a tough night of work. That kickboxing zombie might end up grinding you out with his pace and will.
