Michael Bisping: Conor McGregor Made a Mistake by Moving Up

according to former middleweight champion, Michael Bisping this move from Conor seems to be a miscalculated one. Conor has put on significant muscle mass for his fight against Cowboy and Bisping believes that is going to be detrimental for the Notorious One. 

“For him to be bigger, the fact that he took the fight at 170 it’s more muscle, then there is more oxygen. So it’s only gonna make you gas out more,” said Bisping.

Bisping also believes that though Conor is very beatable after the first two rounds.

“Conor, historically throughout his career, has struggled with his cardio. You get him out of the first two rounds, he loses his fight pretty much. He is great in the first round, he is great in the second, and kind of goes downhill from there. Not saying he can’t go the distance. But stylistically, that’s just kind of the way it is.”

Bisping Favors Donald Cerrone Over Conor

Michael Bisping likes the matchup for Cowboy at welterweight. He stated Conor would have been more of a favorite had he fought Cerrone at lightweight. But at 170 lbs, Bisping is leaning towards Cowboy to get the job done.

“I think Cerrone is going to go in there stronger, bigger and heavier. And also here is the key thing. If you don’t have to cut as much weight if you don’t have to lose as much muscle in the training camp if you don’t have to do that grueling weight cut you can take a punch better.”
