Goodbye featherweight division, Conor McGregor is never coming back to you. According to some side-by-side pictures, welterweight Conor McGregor would eat featherweight Conor McGregor as an appetizer before his filet mignon steak dinner. Sucks for Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar because they likely will never face McGregor at anywhere near 145 pounds.
McGregor was always a very tall 145 pounder but now at 170 pounds before UFC 196, Mystic Mac is looking down right swoll. Despite moving up two classes to fight Nate Diaz at welterweight, could McGregor be the larger fighter come Saturday night? The UFC’s featherweight champion looks comfortable and fit competing at welterweight.
Just look at the highlight from the UFC 196 open workout. Speed plus power equals a dangerous opponent for anyone at 155 or 170 pounds in the UFC.
