Conor McGregor has become a hot property ever since he defeated Jose Aldo at UFC 194 within 13 seconds.

Known for his flamboyant style and trash talks, McGregor has earned both respect and criticisms from people.

However, he is not the one to pay any heeds to such criticisms.

McGregor is due to face Rafael dos Anjos next at UFC 197. And people have already started their predictions about the fight.

One such prediction comes from Eddie Alvarez himself.

The former Bellator lightweight champion and current lightweight contender feels that defeating McGregor isn’t a difficult task.

: Dana White says McGregor can’t beat Dos Anjos

According to him, Dos Anjos can defeat McGregor, but for that he “needs to implement a ground attack”.

“If he don’t, I honestly feel like he can get knocked out, just like the other guys Conor was able to knock out. But he can’t allow it to be mostly of a striking,” Alvarez said on Monday’s episode of The MMA Hour.

“I hate when guys who are from a BJJ background and a good wrestling background abandon their whole base and their whole fundamental because a lot of guys around them are telling them that they’re really good strikers. I hope RDA doesn’t do that. I hope he sticks to what he’s good at and wins the fight in a dominant fashion the way he can, the way I feel like a lot of guys can that aren’t doing it against Conor,” he added.

Eddie then insisted that “there’s a simple way” to beat McGregor.

“There’s a simple way to win against this guy and nobody seems to be doing it. It’s really frustrating to watch,” he said.

“I feel like he’ll look foolish. I honestly feel it could be an embarrassment. It could be like everyone in the crowd going, ‘Wow, that was it? Why didn’t anybody else do that?’ It could be that surprising to people. That’s how I feel. We just haven’t seen him there.”

“The guy hasn’t been in the fight we need to see him in,” he said. “Nobody’s implemented an attack and when someone does, it’s over. This whole show’s over. The whole goddamn spectacle’s over. I don’t know why no one’s doing it. It’s very frustrating.”
