Urijah Faber Comments on UFC 189, Not Impressed by Conor McGregor’s Grappling

In a new interview with the MMA Hour, Urijah Faber talked about UFC 189:

On Conor McGregor’s UFC 189 Win
First off, Conor McGregor was a tough dude, no doubt. He was eating elbows, taking punches, and this guy likes to fight. He waited for his opportunity and finished the fight when he had his opportunity.

On McGregor’s Grappling
I don’t think Conor showed he’s a good grappler in the least bit.

On If Mendes Would Have Had a Full Camp
If Chad Mendes were training for the biggest fight his life for eight weeks, for more than that, for 10-12 weeks, you’re going to see a different Chad,” Faber said. “A guy that would not fatigue, and then it becomes who is going to implement his game? Can Conor land punches? Can Chad land his takedowns? Chad landed big, solid punches as well.
