As Conor McGregor gets set to fight Donald Cerrone on January 18th, the consensus is that if “Cowboy” takes the bout down, it will favor him. But, recently McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach and teammate, Dillon Danis, was quick to praise the ground game of the former champ.

In a recent interview with The Schmo, Danis had this to say about McGregor’s jiu-jitsu skills (quote via MMA Junkie):

“Conor’s always been prepared, man,” Danis said. “Conor’s been one of the best jiu-jitsu guys that I’ve ever rolled with, like MMA-wise since I started training with him. His jiu-jitsu is on another level, and it always has been.”

“I think people just underestimate him for some reason, but if it does go to the ground, they’ll see,” Danis said. “They’ll see how good he is.”

At UFC 246, McGregor will be competing for the first time since October, 2018, when he was submitted by lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
