Becky Lynch Talks Conor McGregor vs. Khabib, Why Her Armbar Is Better Than Ronda Rousey’s, Facepaint


WWE star Becky Lynch was recently interviewed by Brian Campbell on the In This Corner podcast to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Here are some of the highlights:

Conor McGregor’s chances against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229: “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.”

Who’s armbar is better: her’s or 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.”

If she’d ever entertain a face paint gimmick: “Oh, absolutely. It seems fun. I like putting on facepaint. I studied theatre.”
