Alvarez wants ‘gimme’ fight with McGregor

8 Jul, 2016

Alvarez says he would like to fight McGregor in the future.

I would ask [UFC president] Dana White, ‘Please give me an easier fight, like Conor McGregor. I deserve that. I’ve been fighting the best guys, so I would like a gimme fight. So, Conor, I’d more than welcome that…Look, there’s a lot of guys in the UFC who are good at one thing, and they get matched up stylistically well. They make their way to the top without ever going against the true best guys in the division. They sneak their way around them, and they live off perception, not what really is. [McGregor] is one of them. I think he can get found out. If he was ever to fight Rafael Dos Anjos or to fight myself, he’d get found out very quickly.
