McGregor has called nearly every one of his finishes inside the UFC octagon and at the UFC 197 pre fight press conference, McGregor gave his opinion on how the fight would end when he meets Rafael dos Anjos on March 5th.
“I believe I will dust Rafael inside one minute,” McGregor said at the on-sale press conference. “He is a slower, sloppier version of Aldo. He’s like a bum version of Aldo. I believe in absolutely everything, I believe that inside one minute I will dust him. I will exit the contest fresh, I will cash the check, I will sign the next contract for UFC 200– the brand new MGM [arena] — and we’ll go again.”
At the press conference, dos Anjos was asked about McGregor’s move up to 155 pounds.
The Brazilian champion said “Lightweight is a different story,” dos Anjos said. “We’re bigger.”
Before he could finish his sentence, the brash Irishman interupted dos Anjos by stating that he was the bigger man having a 5-foot-9 with a 74-inch reach compared to Rafael dos Anjos’ 5-foot-8 with a 70-inch reach
