True, but Team Ryano fighters leave much to be desired in terms of fitness and conditioning, they are usually always sub par, maybe diet or genes play a factor, or fluoride water in their country, or maybe they just arent doing the elite fitness and strength training that you need these days... Physically Team Ryano fighters, and even most Irish MMA fighters whatever team, they usually dont look impressive, they are poor athletes and have poor athletic capacity, journeymen at best, cans at worst... The boxers however, many of them have excellent fitness levels, and there are a few standouts sometimes its not all bad, but yeah the fitness/conditioning standards need to be improved big time or you will never be elite

Can't take you too seriously when you say Irish fighters are cans or Jouneymen (and I'm no Irish MMA fanboy)

As there are cans fighting all over local MMA in the UK. Either that or my definition of a can/Jouneyman and yours are very, very different. 

e..g UFC fighters aren't cans

And if they had both won, people who be saying they were getting cans

You can't win in this game

Im not a fan of the "all Irish MMA fighters are cans/journeymen except for McGregor" line, but its not completely inaccurate to be honest... As I said maybe its the poison fluoride levels in the Irish water system, dunno, but the pro Irish MMA fighters fitness and conditioning is low level generally, even McGregor has poor stamina and fitness it seems he just has good genes and was wise to learning boxing in his childhood/teen years, if not for that, he would possibly or very likely be a nobody like all the rest of Irish fighters
