Rutten: McGregor must defend or vacate title

Makes Statement

Rutten says McGregor must defend his title:

First of all, (he needs to fight) the interim champion. He needs to defend his title, it’s got to start there. I think Max Holloway is a fight that he needs to fight as well, if he still wants to fight it. Nate Diaz will be a great fight, but I think he’s holding the division hostage. He needs to defend his title. Otherwise, he’s going to have to step away from it.

Rutten: McGregor stance weak on left side

Makes Statement

Rutten says that McGregor has great hands, but his stance is a weak point.

I’m in love with his hands. He is the guy, one of my favourites to watch. Also, outside of fighting the way he talks. Like with me in interviews, it’s the same story over and over again. But he can make it different every time. He’s one of those guys who constantly changes…You know his stance, because he’s a southpaw. What I thought with Aldo was, if I was Aldo’s coach a year ago, I would have said ‘we’re going to train southpaw’ because there is no way that he can block those low-kicks. If left low-kicks come he can’t block ’em. His stance is too wide and his knees are pointing inside, he can’t block them. It changes the whole game.
