Who would win in a fight: Conor McGregor or Georges St. Pierre?
There's a reason why Conor McGregor is the face of the company, and it isn't because of the tattoos. The Notorious One has stepped up to every challenge Dana White has thrown at him and excelled. His hand speed is incredible, and he has knockout power at multiple levels. There is no one he will not fight to prove that he is the best fighter in the world.
McGregor has beaten bigger fighters before, and he'll do it against GSP.
McGregor might be the star of the UFC, but you can't teach size, and he doesn't enough of it against GSP. McGregor is used to fighting at 145-155 pounds. St. Pierre is a welterweight that fights at 170 pounds.
McGregor had trouble with Nick Diaz, who is a scrub compared to GSP—a three-time champion and one of the most respected fighters in the company's history. McGregor may have beaten bigger fighters before, but he won't be able to topple this mountain. St. Pierre will kill McGregor.
