What May Weather is to be Scared of:-
- He is Professional mixed martial arts
- He still holds the Ultimate Fighting Championship
- He Doesnt go down easily (very Skill full)
- He is a Very fast Boxer and has won Fastest title fight victory in UFC history (13 seconds) aginst José Aldo
- His body movement is trikish.
- Conor is quite large for his division, 145 or 155. He’s very tall for 145, and average height for 155. But, either way, his reach is quite long.
- He’s extremely precise and accurate.
- He’s very fast. His punches, kicks and knees, his footwork and defensive movements all come with real speed.
- His chin is made of granite. (lol)
- He’s very physically strong. He hits quite a bit harder than what most of his opponents are used to.
Conor McGrego Weakness
- His shallow gas tank
- His grappling skills are probably not quite where they need to be yet
- He’s a bit too willing to get hit; his defensive skills need to worked on. Every time he gets hit, his granite chin gets chipped away at, bit by bit.
