The Mountain: I’d take down McGregor in 10 seconds
Bjornsson, who enjoyed a slow-paced sparring session with McGregor in 2015, warns the Irishman that if they were to throw down for real, he could expect a similar fate.
Bring me shorts and put us in a cage, and I’ll fight him again. If I get a grab on him it would be over in 10 seconds.
When asked how many McGregors it would take to beat him:
Maybe five. [In the sparring session] I knew I could take him down, but I just didn’t want to break him,. He felt really light. I had him a few times, but I just didn’t want to break him. He’s quick and slippery, so it’s hard to get a grip. There were moments where I could have just messed him [up]. There’s a huge size difference between me and him, but I’m not used to getting punched. I’m no fighter; I’m wearing jeans and shoes. I just took my shirt off, and we were joking.
