Coach: McGregor 'Too Technically' For Ferguson

Coach: McGregor 'Too Technically' For Ferguson”

White's comments came after Ferguson, the Ultimate Fighter season 13 victor, claimed the interim lightweight title with a third-round submission victory over Kevin Lee in the main event of UFC 216.

Bisping though claims that despite Ferguson being a tougher fight for McGregor, the American's weakness of exposing his chin would be seriously exposed by the lightweight champion.

Despite a switch to boxing for a megafight with Floyd Mayweather Jr that ended in defeat, the Irishman remains one of the biggest draws in MMA.

Conor McGregor last fought in the Octagon past year on November 12 at UFC 205 where he became the first fighter in history to simultaneously hold two UFC division titles.

"I think he was just saying it to keep people on their toes". I guess we've got to see the fight to find out'. It's the trilogy, the first two fights, the back and forth between the guys and the way the fights went. "You need to get your (expletive) together and come fight me, straight up".

Ferguson fighting McGregor makes the most sense, but those types of fights aren't always what the UFC put together.

The report goes on to say that McGregor is a fan of the WWE as he has modeled his persona on guys like The Rock and Ric Flair. McGregor lasted 10 rounds in his boxing debut August 27 before the referee stopped the fight, giving Mayweather a TKO victory. He's an exciting fighter so it will be an exciting fight, so either or.

"He has some things to tie up in the UFC before he can do anything else but this is a big money deal so I can't see him turning it down".

"But this time it looks like a deal is going to be locked into place. But yeah, without a doubt if he wants to stand and bang with Conor it'll be lights out fairly quick, I think". I don't think Ferguson is as durable as Diaz, so I think we'll be well able to land the shots.

"Conor needs his ass kicked and we need to unify that belt", he said. But if he wants to go in 2017, I'm down.

"The WWE guys have asked him to do shows before with them but the timing was never really right". I mean compared to what UFC rules state, he's got a year to start defending his belt. The lightweight belt must be defended and unified.

"Yeah, I would like more time off, definitely".

"I already told him one time: Just set it down and walk away and nobody will get hurt".
