If you’ve been watching all the promotional materials for UFC Fight Night 59 you may be a little burnt out on Conor McGregor related content (or not), but a new video provides an interesting / new angle.
The segment below features veteran fighter and UFC commentator Dan Hardy, who weighs-in on the rise of McGregor. More specifically, Hardy talks about the comparisons that have been made between his early days in the UFC, and those of McGregor’s.
If you recall, Hardy joined the UFC in 2008 and proceeded to talk some trash, win four straight, and then challenged Georges St-Pierre in 2010. After losing via decision to GSP, Hardy proceeded to drop three more more bouts, before turning it around versus Duane Ludwig.
“The Outlaw” distances himself from McGregor, however, by arguing that the latter is a more complete fighter and a better showman than he was, during his memorable run.
McGregor will battle Dennis Siver tomorrow night at UFC FN 59, which will take place in Boston, Massachusetts.
