GSP Gives A Breakdown Of Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone
Georges St Pierre has one of the best grappling games in all of MMA. He says that Donald Cerrone needs a similar approach if he wants to beat Conor McGregor at UFC 246.
GSP is arguably the best fighter in MMA history. He used a combo of his wrestling and striking skills to beat almost everyone he ever faced off against. As such, his opinion and thoughts on fights are highly respected.
“If it’s a quick fight, it’s going to be McGregor, If it’s a long fight, it’s going to be Cerrone,” GSP said.
“if Cerrone comes and tries to grapple because he’s got very, very good ground game,” St Pierre continued “His ground game is very underrated. I’ve trained with him before and he’s got good takedowns. He’s very explosive to shoot the takedown. People don’t know that because he doesn’t use it much. He used it against Patrick Cote. But if he does that, to weather the first couple minutes of the storm and McGregor’s powerful left hand, I think he can get it.”
“I think if he wrestles Round 1,” GSP concluded. “he’s got a good chance to win. But if he tries to play a boxing game, and karate game, with McGregor, McGregor will tag him and knock him out.”
