McGregor McRetires? No. But let's talk about him anyway.

Recommended Posts

Yeah, “let them hate”. As if the people knocking a man who tweets racist shit, is being investigated for a brutal rape, has been caught on camera calling someone a faggot, hit an innocent man at that Bellator event, smashes someone’s phone up, gets done for speeding and gets caught begging for mercy in a fight...yeah, those people have got it all wrong. That’s someone you should look up to. I think the arse licking is part them looking for some kind of recognition from him and part that they’re immature bellends who think these antics make him ‘gangsta’ or some shit. I don’t know which I find more sad and pathetic.

Wand, I feel that I should warn you that you're likely to be joining me on @Egg Shen's shit list if you continue panning his man without hard, court-level evidence that he's anything other than a cheeky Irish lad with great banter and questionable dress sense.

The problem with McGregor's fans is that there are loads of them. In consequence, he attracted lot of impressionable fans who got caught up in the hype. He hasn't helped matters himself. He's always been one to make silly claims. For example, he made silly comments about Aldo in the run-up to their fight. Most people laughed his claims off as a bit of hyperbole mixed with a bit of psychological warfare. But his most impressionable fans (or nut-huggers if you like) took his claims seriously.

The problem has escalated from there, as he's continued to indulge this impressionable lot with even more bollocks. Well I presume it has, because I try not to read YouTube/Twitter comments sections. So I can only go on what I read on here.

If the court case rests on that, McGregor will lose. There's very little justification in law for physical assault in response to verbal provocation.

There was a court case involving actual footage of him throwing shit at a bus and smashing the windows yet he was able to plea bargain.  Money talks.

Yeah, very true, but one of the things in his favour was that it was his first offence in the US. If he carries on doing stuff like this, and getting prosecuted for it, it's only a matter of time before he's either deported and prevented from re-entering the US, or gets a custodial sentence.

So, McG is pretty much blaming his loss to Khabib on a foot injury, which was so terrible he should have cancelled the fight as it caused him weight cutting problems, dehydration, and sleeplessness before the fight, yet at the same time he managed to shit on Aldo for pulling out of their fight with an injury.

Quote

In hindsight, Conor McGregor thinks he probably shouldn’t have fought Khabib Nurmagomedovafter suffering an injury to his foot just weeks out from their clash.

In a recent interview with motivational speaker Tony Robbins, McGregor was reminded of the injury he suffered when he was speaking about how Jose Aldo pulled out of their initial featherweight championship date in 2015 at UFC 189.

“The most significant moment of my career was when I first tasted UFC gold,” McGregor told Robbins.

“It was at UFC 189 in Las Vegas, I was supposed to face the current champion Jose Aldo, but he pulled out nine days before the bout with a broken rib; someone threw a spinning back kick on him and broke his rib. Broke his rib…it was more like a bruised rib.”

McGregor—who first revealed that he broke his foot before UFC 229 via social media last month—went on to describe how he suffered the injury by attempting to land a front kick on an oncoming wrestler.

“Two and half weeks out from my last fight I threw a front kick at a shooting Moldovan wrestler—a shooting wrestler is a guy that’s shooting in on your legs—and when he shot and I threw the front kick…I threw it at his belly and my two toes—my baby toe and the toe next to it—bent back like this and stuck in that position,” he explained.

“My doctor, who’s here with me now, had to come into the cage, stretch it and break it back into place. My foot swelled like a balloon, that was two and a half weeks out from my last fight.”

The former two-weight champion highlighted that he dynamic skillset can be a blessing and curse because even without his foot, he believed he could beat Nurmagomedov, yet given the severity of the injury, he probably should not have fought.

“That’s one of the things I’m blessed with, I have many shots in my arsenal, I have many moves—I can box, I can kick—I have many different skills in my arsenal, but that’s a blessing and a curse,” he said.

“It’s blessing for obvious reasons, I can throw many moves, I can stifle an opponent. A curse because when I face a serious injury where I probably should have just reset the match to a later date, my hunger and my knowledge that I just need one shot; I have one limb gone, but I have another seven limbs...the art of eight limbs, this is, so I can utilize other strikes in my arsenal.”

“The Notorious” went on to claim that the injury led to further problems with his weight cut and his workouts before dismissing his own points as “nonsensical excuses”.

“The injury itself led me to half my workload. I couldn’t road run anymore, my weight was too high. So when you’re cutting weight and you can’t get your weight down because your weight is too high because of injuries and what not, I have a more intense weight cut. I was severely dehydrated, I didn’t sleep for 48 hours before the weight cut,” he said.

“These are all nonsensical excuses that I don’t give a f*ck about, I don’t give a sh*t. That’s why I walked in there hands down—ding ding ding—and walked forward to him and he went running around the cage.”

Khabib "went running around the cage."

I wonder if he's actually convinced himself any of that is true?

He's also claimed that he would beat Mayweather in a rematch. He claims that he had Mayweather under control in the early rounds, until Floyd changed his style. 

Conor has become Chael Sonnen circa 2014. It's very easy to dismiss or ignore everything he says these days. Don't get me wrong, I would be interested to see him fight in the UFC again. But that is where my interest in him both begins and ends.

Yeah, the thing is he's still a decent fighter. There's a lot of guys in the 155lbs division that he could beat, but Khabib is kryptonite for a fighter with his skillset. Fuck, he's a nightmare matchup for anyone really. Nothing wrong with that, it's how it goes.

If he'd just brushed his loss off as losing to the better man and focused on the Cowboy fight or whatever he'd have come out of it looking much better.

He’s full of shit. Apart from the shit Khabib already beat out of him of course. He’s flat-out lying. And he’s thick as fuck when there’s footage like this shitting all over his excuses. Just like when he tried to convince everyone he said “don’t be bitching” when they clearly heard him say “it’s only business”. He’s undeniably a talented fighter but he’s a mental midget, a scumbag and he’s become a laughing stock to anyone who doesn’t have a weird mancrush on him. Funny how he and his fans gave the likes of Aldo and Dos Anjos grief for pulling out with injuries yet Conor is now saying he should’ve pulled out of the Khabib fight. He’s even had the cheek to accuse RDA of “bottling out of their fight with a broken toe” recently. While claiming he broke the foot he was stamping the Octagon with. The twat. He’s going to have to smash a lot more phones up to get rid of the footage proving him wrong.

I love that Conor can''t grasp that Floyd's change of style went from, "putting on a show," to, "actually trying to win."

What's interesting is trying to work out if he genuinely believes it or if he's just trying to make himself relevant again to make money out of his next fight. Of course, without being around him it's impossible to know, but it does feel from interviews etc that he's no longer playing the character and he now genuinely believes this shit. There was a time when he came over as one of the smartest businessmen in fighting. Now he seems delusional.
