Conor McGregor: Ronda Rousey ‘would throw me on my head in one second’

Conor McGregor is tough enough to beat most people in UFC, but there’s one person he wouldn’t like to face in the Octagon: Olympic bronze medallist and women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

McGregor, who knocked out Chad Mendes earlier this month to become the UFC’s interim featherweight champion, described Rousey as “unbelievable” in an interview with SI Now.

“I remember one time, I’d seen her, and I greeted her, and I said ‘What’s up champ?’ and we embraced. “I swear on my life: her back muscles were the most solidest [sic] back muscles I’d ever felt in my life,” McGregor said.

“I thought if this lady was to get a hold of me, she would throw me on my head in literally one second flat. So I would not like to engage in a clinch fight with Ronda.”

He might not like to do it, but McGregor still reckons he’d win. “But, make no mistake about it, I have my ways to win that fight, too,” he said.

McGregor, 27, recorded a second-round TKO over Mendes earlier this month to improve his record to 18-2 and claim the interim featherweight title.
