Conor McGregor has had two of the more interesting weeks of his career recently after announcing his retirement from the octagon before reinstating himself mere days later in a post on his Facebook complaining about press conferences.
The Irishman is almost definitely out of UFC 200 with Daniel Cormier vs Jon Jones II being named the new headliner of the show by Dana White and the rest of the UFC last week.
On that same card, Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar will be going one-on-one for the interim UFC Featherweight title after it was decided that McGregor wouldn't be defending his title. Now, another UFC fighter has claimed McGregor will never be a good 'Championship fighter.'

Speaking on The MMA Hour, Eddie Alvarez called out 'The Notorious' saying that he only fights well when his contests last only a round or two.
"And to be honest with you, Conor’s a one-or-two-round fighter," Alvarez said.
"He’s not a championship fighter, you know what I mean? He’s a one-or-two-round guy. He’ll be a lifer, I think, in three-rounders. If he ever decides to do five-rounders or go past to five, I think most of his fights are going to look like that. He’s going to take a dump."
Alvarez isn't the biggest fan of McGregor, to say the very least, and this isn't the first time that he has spoken about the Irishman.
Before Nate Diaz handed McGregor his first ever loss in the UFC, Alvarez came out and claimed that McGregor had some huge glaring holes in his fighting style and that there was a very easy way to beat the biggest draw in the UFC.
When Diaz turned up the heat on McGregor in the second round, keeping up with the Featherweight champion's initial barrage in the stand up game then tiring him out and taking advantage, everyone though that was the secret. Turns out, it wasn't.
"That wasn’t the secret I was talking about," Alvarez told Helwani. "The secret I was talking about is just taking the guy down, dumping him on his head, and then submitting him."
