Conor McGregor made some interesting remarks in a video posted on his YouTube channel this Monday. The UFC featherweight champion talked about his upcoming bout in NY. First of all he had some words regarding lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez.
“I don’t think he is going to last anywhere near the fifth round. Because if he does, he’ll never fight again. I’ll take my hat off to his heart, but he’ll be like me, he’ll never, ever, ever be the same again. But if he does make it to the fifth, that’s when I take off, I’m sprinting in the fifth. So we’re ready.”
“Alvarez just has the belt, that’s it. That’s the only reason he’s there. After, I’m going to be struggling to see who’s next. So, really, who the f*ck is next? Who has gone out there time and time again, back-to-back-to-back, putting it all on the line and continuing to show up?”
Finally, he went off on the entire UFC roster:
“They all say I’m all talk, but I look at them and say they’re all talk because I’m here fighting every week. I even had to fight a guy three times the size of me, and now, I’m back again. All they do is complain, b*tch and moan. You want this money, you want what I got? You have to put in the f*cking work. So as far as I’m seeing, nobody is putting in the work. Everyone is talking, everyone is thinking just cause Conor has it, I should have it. No, no. I didn’t always have it. There is a reason why I have it. I had to work my f*cking bollocks off to get it, and here I am, still working while they’re talking.”
Conor McGregor will make his debut at 155 pounds opposite Eddie Alvarez on November 12th at UFC 205. As a result, he will have the chance to become the first fighter to hold two UFC belts simultaneously.
