Conor McGregor is back on top of the world after beating Nate Diaz in their UFC rematch.

The Irishman lost some respect when he came out on the losing end in the original fight between the two in the Octagon back in March this year at UFC 196.

But McGregor responded in kind by defeating Diaz in the rematch last month at UFC 202, a clash widely acknowledged as one of the greatest in UFC history.

McGregor, though, still has his doubters and none come bigger than Michael Bisping, with the middleweight champion letting his thoughts be knownin a recent interview with the Daily Star.

It’s not that Bisping thinks he could take out McGregor it’s that he knows Eddie Alvarez could do the job with ease.

Alvarez and McGregor haven’t competed in the ring yet but plenty of buzz is surrounding the former after he picked up the lightweight title at UFC Fight Night 9. Alvarez claimed fighting McGregor would be ‘easy’ after dethroning Rafael do Anjos, and Bisping certainly agrees with that statement.

"I think looking at that last fight, he does not want to fight Eddie Alvarez at 155," he told Daiy Star Sport. "I think Alvarez kills him man. He’ll just take him down and destroy him.”

Bisping insists he isn’t attempting to stir the pot and is rather stating his opinion on what would unfold.

“I’m not saying that to be mean, I just think stylistically,” he added. “I like Conor. Conor is incredible, he’s done amazing things for this sport. He’s brought so many eyes on to it, he’s making so much money and he’s exciting as hell. He brings excitement.”
