Chad Mendes would beat the s--t out of Conor McGregor, who has a 'stupid-ass haircut' and 'goofy suits'

Has Conor McGregor surpassed the great Chael Sonnen as the biggest trash talker in the fight business? According to Chad Mendes, it's very possible.

Conor McGregor likes to talk ... a lot.

When he's not bashing the top contenders of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight division, he's going straight to the top, attacking champion Jose Aldo.

On a recent edition of The MMA Hour, McGregor was asked what he thought about Chad Mendes getting a rematch against Aldo on Aug. 2, 2014, at UFC 176 in Los Angeles, California.

After "Notorious" predicted a win for Aldo, he proceeded to bash Mendes, saying that he looked like a "mini Phil Baroni" and that Chad's physique wasn't meant for the fight game.

Upon catching wind of those comments, "Money" responded -- also on The MMA Hour -- and unloaded his verbal clip on the Irishman, labeling Conor the "biggest shit talker" he's ever seen.

In Chad's eyes, the constant chatter is simply a way of trying to get to the top without actually putting the work in where it counts, inside the cage.

His words:

"Bottom line, this guy is the biggest shit talker I have ever seen or heard in my entire life. Basically, what he's doing is trying to get up in the top mix as quickly as he can because he hasn't fought anybody. I don't know why this guy thinks he can win one or two fights against guys that are on a lower level and expect to be fighting for the title. So, he is running his mouth and talking shit to everybody and calling everyone out. That's all it is. I mean, this guy he needs to fight someone in the top five and I guarantee he will get his ass kicked. I don't see why he feels he needs to run his mouth, talking shit. It's one thing to build the fight up, but to make it personal and talking shit about people, it's not cool. This guy is just a shit talker who is trying to get to the top without doing the work. He needs to take his stupid-ass haircut, his goofy little suits and fight someone in the top five and prove himself before he doesn't any of that."

When asked if he would ever take a fight against McGregor, Mendes simply responded by saying it wouldn't be much of a contest and guaranteed that he would knock "Notorious" out in the very first round.

"I would beat the shit out of Conor McGregor. It wouldn't even be a fight. I would knock that dude out in the first round. Guaranteed. The guy is a clown. Nope (he's not on my level.) I think Cole has a great chance of going out there and submitting him. He better not take him lightly, because Cole can sneak a sub in there."

Diego Sanchez also likes Chad's chances in a fight against McGregor.

In addition, "Money" says Conor's act is getting old and all it takes is a true test against a top five guy to prove that he isn't as good as he thinks he is.

It's not exactly the top of the totem pole, but McGregor will face a stiff contest in his next outing as he is set to battle it out against Cole Miller -- another man who predicted a first-round knockout -- in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46 in Dublin, Ireland, on July 19, 2014.

Should he prove victorious, then Conor may finally get a top-five opponent to show his true worth. But, according to Mendes, that will just signal the end of the McGregor hype train.

How about it, Maniacs, would you be interested in seeing a match-up between these two just to see if Chad can back up his guarantee?
