Conor McGregor is loud, brash and overrated. He’s also parlayed all of those things into a meteoric rise through the UFC’s ranks. On Saturday night he will take on Dustin Poirier at UFC 178 and look to climb one step closer to the biggest names in the division.
The biggest name in Irish MMA history, McGregor has built his reputation around talking a big game and surprising most by backing it up.
McGregor has won 11 in a row, including his first 3 fights inside the UFC cage. (McGregor will face off in the third fight of the card and we will have UFC 178 Results and Live Play by Play on Saturday.)
But up against the elite in the division McGregor will have little chance at success. Here are 5 fighters who would easily defeat him.
