Jack Slack loves McGregor, and thinks (rightly IMO) he is the one of the most exciting and creative strikers in the UFC. But even if you are not totally sold on Mcgregor this is a really interesting and detailed breakdown.

This is my favourite breakdown, I challenge you to watch this and not spend the fight trying to work out who has the dominant lead foot.

Rebusch and Winman love to get into the detail. While both are admirers of McGregor, their analysis leads them to pick Mendes.

I like these guys over at severe mma. They have been following the rise of the Straight Blast Gym fighters from before they made the UFC and they have some insights into their training and history you don’t find elsewhere.
