UFC Fight Night Dublin - McGregor v Brandao

Either #2 Cub Swanson or #3 Frankie Edgar would expose McGregor’s lack of ground game and fighting stance. However Cub and Frankie face each other next month, so a bout with McGregor is unlikely. Even #4 Ricardo Lamas would be a “real” challenge for McGregor. Lamas was a D-II AA and would test McGregor’s all around MMA skills. Featherweight isn’t the strongest weight class the UFC has. If McGregor fights #2-#4 the UFC is making him earn a shot at the title. If not, he’s getting a cakewalk to a title shot, for the money. Chael Sonnen got some of the same treatment but also had a much longer and successful background that McGregor.
