ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has made his stance clear: Conor McGregor should steer clear of a fight with UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev.In the aftermath of Makhachev’s impressive victory over Dustin Poirier, the call for a McGregor-Makhachev showdown has gained momentum. However, Smith believes this matchup is the “worst possible fight we could possibly want to see”

Stephen A.Smith Opens up on a Possible Islam Makhachev vs Conor Mcgregor Fight

“Conor goes and starts on a rant, starting to create drama with Islam,” Mendez told Red Corner MMA. “Which is kind of good because Conor’s the kind of guy you want to root against or root for. Regardless, everybody wants to see him, Me, I want to see him get beat by Islam.

“So, for me, him doing what he’s doing is causing a lot of attention, so there wouldn’t be nothing better for me and Khabib (Nurmagomedov) than to have Islam have a fight with him somewhere down the line. He brought that staph up, which is very observant on his part, to be honest with you. The only thing is that he observed it way too late. At the time he mentioned it, it was already three weeks past.”

“I was in Vegas for the Conor McGregor-Khabib Nurmagomedov fight,” Smith said on ESPN’s “First Take” (h/t Championship Rounds). “It was one of the greatest events I’ve ever attended in my life. It was unreal.

“But what we learned in that fight is that Conor McGregor has no business being in the octagon against a grappler, which is what Makhachev (is). This brother right here is something special, and he’s not going to try and strike against Conor McGregor.”

Smith goes so far as to say that fans should “literally protest” if the UFC tries to put Makhachev in the Octagon against McGregor. His prediction? The fight would be over inside of two rounds, with Makhachev likely forcing McGregor to submit. Clearly, Smith believes that McGregor’s path should steer clear of the grappling prowess of Makhachev.
