Conor McGregor says zero is some-more annoying than removing your “a– whooped on inhabitant TV.”
The UFC striker, dubbed “Notorious,” is one of a many famous athletes in quarrel sports. The 30-year-old is eminent for his harmful left cranky super-punch, and his distinguished ability in ubiquitous has seen him measure knockout wins over tip fighters like Chad Mendes, José Aldo, and Eddie Alvarez.
With 21 wins (18 by knockout) from 25 fights, McGregor is famous some-more for his victories than for his losses. He has been submitted 4 times in churned martial humanities fights, however, and mislaid his usually incursion into veteran fighting when he was outthought, outfought, and outclassed by a dominant former five-weight universe champion prizefighter Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2017.
It is maybe since of this that McGregor considers his waste to be his biggest embarrassments. In a Gentside talk from final year, that has usually only been published, McGregor was asked what his many degrading impulse was.
“Man, there’s too many too mention,” he said. “I’ve had my a– whooped on inhabitant TV a integrate of times and we can’t get some-more annoying than that.”
McGregor’s initial detriment in veteran sports arrived in his third quarrel in 2008, when Artemij Sitenkov submitted him with a kneebar during Cage of Truth 3 in Dublin. Two years after Joseph Duffy done him daub out with an arm-triangle throttle during Cage Warriors 39: The Uprising.
McGregor afterwards embarked on an unusual 15-fight winning streak, including resounding wins over Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier, that culminated with his 13-second knockout over Aldo.
But he has mislaid 3 times in his past 5 fights, as Nate Diaz submitted him with a rear-naked throttle during UFC 196 in 2016, Mayweather stopped him on his feet in a 10th turn of their boxing-rules competition in 2017, and Khabib Nurmagomedov done him daub to a parsimonious neck holder during UFC 229 on Oct 6.
Fortunately for McGregor, his victories outnumber his losses, and he will be looking to lapse to winning ways when he subsequent competes.
When that will be stays unclear, though he has been campaigning for a rematch opposite Nurmagomedov.
McGregor also pronounced he is happy to quarrel “the subsequent in line” though could even contest a second crossover hitch by holding on Paulie Malignaggi, a man who has been mercilessly trolling him for over a year, in a fighting quarrel subsequent year.
