Conor McGregor’s Coach Says Even a “Completely New Style” From Jose Aldo Won’t Extend His Reign

Conor McGregor

By FCF Staff

Conor McGregor has repeatedly predicted that he’ll take out Jose Aldo at UFC 194, and the fighter’s coach evidently agrees. Even if the champ unveils a completely new game.

Since McGregor arrived in the UFC in 2013, the Irish fighter has argued that the top featherweight’s are too predictable, too static and as a result, too hittable. “Notorious” has included Aldo in that group.

Well, recently McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh, authored a column for Ireland’s The 42. In it, Kavanagh had this to say about what he thinks Aldo might do in his December 12th scrap with McGregor.

“He’ll probably try to slow the pace down and initiate some grappling exchanges. However, with Conor’s fight IQ and the manner in which he can read situations, even if Aldo comes out with a completely new style and approach, it won’t take Conor long to work it out. It’s almost like The Matrix, in that he sees a new problem which is being presented, downloads the correct response from his brain and then executes the plan….”

Kavanagh went on to say that he doesn’t see Aldo lasting past the second round. Aldo hasn’t been finished in ten years.
