Re: The Official Conor McGregor thread - UFC257

McGregor should just move on to fighting Youtube stars and bum boxing matches. His UFC days are done. This sums it up the best:
Boxing legend Marvin Hagler once said “It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning to go for a run when you’re sleeping in silk sheets”.

In australia on fast bouncy wickets I’d agree but on green top (nz) or slower UK pitches I think you’ll find they are pretty evenly matched. Not forgetting boult and southee will swing the duke a lot more than starc/Cummins & hazelwoood.
