UFC: Dana White believes Conor McGregor is one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC - Conor McGregor

McGregor will have to get pass through an undefeated Nurmagomedov who has an excellent wrestling pedigree. McGregor has already opened as a slight underdog against Nurmagomedov.

McGregor being an elite striker is expected to struggle against the wrestling base of Nurmagomedov. With that being said the last two wrestlers McGregor has fought, he has finished them both in the second round (Chad Mendes and Eddie Alvarez).

UFC President Dana White thus believes McGregor is still one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC.

“It’s funny to say this because of how popular he is and what a huge star he is, but I think Conor McGregor is one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC,” White said on UFC Unfiltered (via MMA Nytt). “Every time Conor McGregor comes out to fight somebody new and it’s a wrestler or it’s whatever, this is the fight that Conor is going to lose. He said that he would knock out Jose Aldo the way he did it, he said he would do it in the first round.

“A lot of people picked him to lose to Eddie Alvarez because of Eddie Alvarez’s style and wrestling. Look how he looked there. Leading up to the fight when he fought Chad Mendes — Chad Mendes is a wrestler, everybody believed that he would do that. Then after [Conor] won everybody said that Chad Mendes didn’t have enough time to train for it. The list goes on and on.”
