Mendes should have this.  The question is how prepared is he going to be.  On a bad day he should be able to beat this guy because generally speaking wrestling can neutralize a striker on any given day.  

But Mendes' striking has been really fucking good.  He's knocked out a lot more guys than Conor and has looked better at it too.  Also he's knocked out far better competition than COnor.  I think the size difference will play a factor, it might at least.  

Would love to see Dana's disgusted face when he's putting the belt around Mendes

id like mcgregor to win cause it would be fun for the sport but i really dont see it happening... but then i start searching predictions and all over the net people and sites are picking mcgregor so i dont know what to believe, one has to try to not jump on the hypetrain  Cheesy
but in all honesty there's 4 or 5 top guys in the division i would conor would have a hard time beating

I will wait for our resident MMA guru Shizzo to weigh in with the fight intangibles before I make a prediction.

Him being a seasoned MMA veteran of the fight game and all

One of the biggest hypetrain derailed, Aldo probably ducking and McGregor facing a not so easy opponent for the interim belt... Love me some badass Don Frye, moustaches of doom...

if conor can use his reach advantage while avoiding the takedowns i can see him winning but thats a big if... he throws a lot of sloppy kicks, doesnt take too much for mendes to take advantage of that and use to set up takedowns... he is taller but he isnt that much taller... then we have the endurance, mendes went 5 rounds with aldo, conor never went 5 rounds, conor only went 3 rounds once his whole career, mendes gone 3 rounds 9 times and im pretty sure they train at a very hard pace at alpha male.

it doesnt even have to be a spectacular win, it could be one of those mendes puts conor on his back every round for 5 rounds and wins by decision...
