McGregor (16-2) is 4-0 in the UFC and is one of the most polarizing new fighters in the UFC. He talks a big game, but has been able to back it up.

He was suspended last year for a failed post-fight drug test, but bounce back with a win in October.

Siver is a powerful striker with a very compact upper body. He has powerful kicks and respectable punching power, but he is facing another striker that is likely better than him. McGregor has a very long reach, which Siver lacks, and McGregor is also quicker with his hands and feet. So far, nobody has been able to figure out McGregor’s flaws, if he has any.
