UFC-MMA Odds on Conor McGregor Claiming a UFC Title before 2016
Conor McGregor to Win a UFC Title before 2014 vs before 2016 head to head odds
Conor McGregor is a confident young man, and he has every right to be after his impressive UFC debut. But can he – as he claimed lately in an interview – match Anderson Silva before he hits 30? He’s twenty-four at the moment, giving him six years in which to reach the very top of the UFC tree, and claim a record comparable to Silva, who is the sport’s longest-reigning champion, the holder of a 16-bout winning streak, and a man with a genuine case to be called ‘the greatest mixed martial artist ever’.
It’s an ambitious goal for McGregor to set himself, but at the odds above, we’re definitely tempted to back him to claim a title. Three years seems like a long time, especially for a man who stopped the undefeated Marcus Brimage in the first round of his UFC career, and so looks like it might be good odds for him to reach the top of the tree before 2016. We reckon McGregorhimself has already got money down for a title to come his way before the end of next year at . And why not? The Irishman is exactly the sort of stand-out talent that the UFC crowd love, and he has the explosive hands and the unshakeable self-belief to establish himself on the scene after the initial waves caused by his win over Brimage. His next bout is August this year, against Andy Ogle, in what will be the Brit’s first overseas fight. It’ll be an interesting one to watch, especially in seeing how McGregor measures up to stiffer opposition (Ogle is making his way handily in the UFC). There will be plenty of people tuning in to see the first round, that’s for sure: only three of McGregor’s professional fights have gone into a second round, and if he can dispose of Ogle, he will definitely be the big news on the UFC scene…
