Becky Lynch Talks Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey


Becky Lynch recently spoke with the In This Corner podcast earlier this month prior to Summerslam and made a comparison between her arm bar and Ronda Rousey’s.  Below are highlights from the interview 

On Conor Mcgregor’s chances against Khabib Nurmagomedov: 

“I think he’s been working so hard with the wrestling, and you can see that with the athletes he’s brought into SBG. I think [Conor] might just catch him because Khabib’s stand-up game isn’t—he’s a great wrestler—I don’t know.”

On whether her arm bar is better than Ronda Rousey’s: 

“Me. Me undoubtably. Here’s why. Her’s is of course—have you been in a straight armbar before? Very painful. Very painful, it will snap your arm. But from my location, I can snap your arm, and choke you out with my leg at the same time. It’s a double whammy.”

On if she would do a gimmick that involved wearing facepaint:

 “Oh, absolutely. It seems fun. I like putting on facepaint. I studied theatre.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
