Conor McGregor has been tipped to embarrass Jose Aldo by coach


‘Rowdy’ Owen Roddy, Conor McGregor’s striking coach, believes that Jose Aldo is set for an embarrassment on December 12.

The Brazilian fighter has had little in the way of trouble during his reign at the top of the featherweight division, but Roddy is confident that McGregor is on the cusp of changing this.

“I think Conor is going to shock everybody again,” he is quoted as saying by Vice. “Honestly, I think he’s going to make this look easy. I really think Conor is going to embarrass Aldo. I think Aldo is going to come out very aggressive, Conor will make him miss and then he’s going to punish him for that with his devastating striking.”

With under one month to go before the fight finally takes place, we can almost certainly expect more equally bold predictions from both camps.
