Conor McGregor is one of the best fighters on earth. Yet having spent most of his UFC career as a featherweight, he also resides on the smaller half of the UFC roster. That means that, despite all his talent, he probably wouldn’t stand much of a chance against the behemoths of the UFC heavyweight division.
In a recent interview with Fox Sports’ Jay and Dan, however, UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem made a somewhat surprising admission. During the show’s Over/Under segment, Overeem was asked whether he thought McGregor would survive over or under 1.5 rounds in the cage with him. His answer? Over.
That’s right, Alistair Overeem believes McGregor, a fighter he would tower over and outweigh by over 50 pounds, would last longer than a round and a half if they were to fight.
Do you agree with Overeem, or his he giving McGregor too much credit? Sound off, PENN nation!
