Conor McGregor’s coach: It’s going to be a matter of time before Eddie Alvarez goes to sleep

on

Conor McGregor will look to make history at UFC 205 when he goes up against lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez to try and be the first ever to hold two UFC belts at the same time. His striking coach Owen Roddy spoke about how he believes the highly anticipated bout will play out, and much like his pupil, he exudes confidence.

As we all know by know, Conor McGregor will challenge Eddie Alverez for the UFC lightweight title at UFC 205. McGregor’s coach Owen Roddy spoke Submission Radio about the fight.

“No disrespect to Alvarez, he is a great fighter and stuff, but he does move similar to a lot of people that Conor has fought,” Roddy told Submission Radio. “And even when Conor’s fought strikers, they all become that type of fighter. When Conor lands, you become a panicked wrestler, and that’s what’s going to happen. Conor’s very clean, and when it comes to a couple of exchanges, Alvarez is going to feel the difference in accuracy and the difference in power and he will start to wrestle and that’s what they all do.”

“Conor’s fought the same type of person all his career,” he said. “Alvarez is a great wrestler, so there will be things we’ll be working on with Conor to make sure that Alvarez can’t keep a hold of him, can’t keep him against the fence, but Conor’s gonna land and I think it’s going to be a matter of time before Alvarez goes to sleep to be totally honest.”
