Alvarez says McGregor’s defence is weak.
I can tell you first-hand that Conor McGregor and the things he says are actually funny and I have no problem laughing at them. I’m not going to get angry. Funny is funny. [His offence is good] but his defence is atrocious… he doesn’t move his head. His best attribute is his reactionary time. A guy like me, I can go wherever. I can kick, I can punch, I can f-cking submit and I can do it all f-cking night…I’ll do whatever the f-ck I want, in any aspect against him. If I want to stand.. I’ll stand, he don’t move his head, he gets hit a tonne
The reason that Conor is [my] target is that every time I beat someone, like a fighter like a Rafael dos Anjos or a Gilbert Melendez, who is actually a legend in this sport and is proven over years to be the best, I get asked about Conor McGregor and it’s kinda annoying so after a while I started being honest with people and telling them what I think…I was being honest with the media saying that I’ve literally fought the best guys in the world back-to-back, and I could use a fight that’s better for me stylistically. And I’m saying that being completely honest with myself and the fans…when you bring anger and all these emotions to a press conference… I think it’s not who you are… I just think being myself up there is the most important.
