Owen Roddy - Conor McGregor More Refined Striker Than Tony Ferguson

Owen Roddy - Conor McGregor More Refined Striker Than Tony Ferguson

There has been much talk about Conor McGregor's return to the ring and the best opponent for him to face when he eventually returns. Before Tony Ferguson's  capture of the UFC interim lightweight title it was a Trilogy with Nate Diaz but the most appropriate should be the one the Fans will love, then who will that be?.

Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC, 0-1 boxing) has another option to stick to Boxing, facing his former sparing partner  Paulie Malignaggi, who has now become one of his bitter rivals or the recent call out by Jeff Horn the WBO World title holder.
Conor McGregor's coach Owen Roddy gave his view on the McGregor's best option on his return.

“It’s exciting,” Roddy told the
“Talking Brawls” podcast . “When the word goes out like that, and people start talking about it, it’s usually not far off of the deal being done. It could be a good one. 
Ferguson is the interim champion and rightfully so. He had a good performance against (Kevin) Lee, and he’s had a lot of good performances.

“I’d like to see it. People, including myself, were talking about the Diaz fight, but who knows that may come again. But if it’s Ferguson, that’s going to be a cracker, as well.”

Roddy, who had earlier said he would personally love to see the Nate Diaz III, now love to see a Tony Ferguson fight, as he has been the most impressive among the lightweights, racking up 10 fights unbeaten.

“That’s what Dana White is saying and because Ferguson is picking at Conor and stuff like that, it’s starting to look like the more logical fight, but who knows?” Roddy said. “It’s an exciting fight, isn’t it? He definitely brings problems, and people are asking for it. That’s the most important thing.

“Obviously money talks at the end of the day, and whatever makes the most money is what both people would go for. But because people are asking for it and posting about it, that’s starting to gain the momentum that’s needed to get that big fight. It’s starting to build. It’ll be a good fight. It’ll definitely be a good fight.”

Roddy really believes that Conor McGregor still remains top of the division and the outcome of a fight with Ferguson will still have Conor McGregor The winner.
“I still see the same outcome,” Roddy said. 

“I still see Conor — if they’re standing for any sort of extended period on the feet, it’ll be a quick one and that’s it. He’s just not as tidy as Conor. You play the percentages, and Conor’s the cleaner, more refined striker. Ferguson is tough. He’s unorthodox. But in my opinion Conor’s just the superior striker, most definitely.”
