Jose.

Jose can deal with the reach of McGregor, which imo is a big part of McGregor's success at this weight-class. Those leg kicks are no joke. Also Jose is just as fluid and fast if not more so than McGregor.

I just think Jose is better at everything that McGregor already does.

I'll have a tough time picking against Aldo unless I see him lose. I think Conor's closed the gap between hype and substance and it's clear he's a heck of a fighter, but Aldo is at a level that only a handful of guys in all of MMA are at and it will take a great performance by a great fighter to beat him. Also is still a clear favorite in my eyes even if McGregor destroys Mendes.

I also think those leg kicks will be a serious problem for conor. His stance leaves him wide open for that and as George said, Jose does not have joke kicks.

Aldo. The difference this time is I'll have no problems whatsoever with the hype McGregor's receiving. One man has beaten Chad Mendes. If Conor becomes the 2nd he deserves every bit of credit he's been given and will be given in the future.

This. Connor has a better chance against Also imo but as usual fundamentals fighters beat unorthodox guys in those matchups.

Why do you have the word "if" in the title?
