Winkeljohn: McGregor can win if he ‘does something Floyd hasn’t seen before’

Makes Statement

Striking coach Winkeljohn says he can see a scenario in which McGregor gets the job done.

If I was to put money on it I’d put Mayweather. But I think Conor has a chance early on. I think if Conor can come in with some different things that Floyd hasn’t seen, off-angle things that he can attack so Floyd can’t hide behind his shoulder as such, he could pull off a surprise. But that would play out real quickly if Conor’s thinking those thoughts. He’s got to come to the table with something that Floyd hasn’t seen much before. And those are the things Conor can do. Conor’s very athletic. Conor’s got a great understanding of angles and footwork. But to do those things, that takes a lot of energy. And in a world title fight do you hold back because you’re worried about running out of gas, or do you just let it go? And that’s tough. That’s a hard call to make on the outside, trying to figure out what’s going on in a fighter’s mind.

Coach: Holm ‘broke’ Rousey

Makes Statement

Winkeljohn, Holm’s coach, says Rousey was broken by Holm.

I can’t see [Rousey returning to fight] happening now. Yeah, it just absolutely can’t happen. I think Holly broke (Rousey). I think Ronda was on top of the world and Holly broke her because when she came out for Amanda she just wasn’t the same fighter by any means. Not taking anything away from Amanda, but Ronda, she didn’t have anything, she just wasn’t there. She was just basically waiting for the end in essence once she couldn’t find a way to grab her. And she did the same thing she’s done before in the past, reaching out with her left arm and trying to corral. It was just a one-sided fight just like I said. I think she’s done.
