Champ — ‘McGregor’s Not Even Close To The Top 5 At Lightweight’

Conor McGregor Chad Mendes


“I’ve never seen Chad take a step back, he always moves forward, and he was breathing hard after the first minute. T.J. Dillashaw was sitting right next to me and I asked him how was Chad’s cardio when he got the call from the UFC, and he said ‘he’s well for three rounds, not five, but he’s always in shape’. But he gassed in one minute, and still beat McGregor up in the first and second rounds. But I believe McGregor is not even close to the top 5 of the division.”

UFC lightweight Rafael dos Anjos recently talked to MMAFighting about Conor McGregor moving up to lightweight and he said he would welcome a fight with the Irishmen, saying it would be easy money. He also said he doesn’t believe McGregor is even in the top five of the featherweight division.
