UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor can really talk the talk. He’s been part of some seriously high level entertainment over recent years, both in and outside the UFC octagon. It looks like he’s only just getting warmed up though.
A recent rant towards the superstars of the WWE showed that McGregor doesn’t only stick to the confines of combat sports. He issued a challenge to the ‘pussies’ of the WWE, claiming he’d ‘smack the heads off the entire roster.’
With all this trash talk aimed at just about anyone who’s mentioned in sports, McGregor might do well to focus on the task in front of him. Nate Diaz submitted McGregor at UFC 196, and they’ll rematch in under two weeks at UFC 202.
The taller and more talented grappler, Diaz managed to use his tools to the full extent in their last fight. On just 11 days notice the Stockton bad boy upset the promotion’s biggest star. Will history repeat itself? That remains to be seen.
An interesting point for debate is that McGregor was originally meant to fight Rafael dos Anjos. The Brazilian was the lightweight champion at that time, and a win for ‘The Notorious’ would have made him the first UFC champion to hold two belts at once.
As we know, that fight never happened, but McGregor sill went off about Rafael dos Anjos…
