Conor McGregor: Expert’s analysis “made me realise how many bums and rookies there really are”


Just days after McGregor won the UFC interim featherweight championship by defeating Chad Mendes in the second round at UFC 189, the Irishman jumped straight into 6 weeks of filming for the upcoming The Ultimate Fighter season, which will see Urijah Faber and Team America battle McGregor and Team Europe.

“It’s all friendly stuff, to be honest,” McGregor told Yahoo

 “Urijah is harmless. He’s a harmless little man. He amuses me. He’s like an annoying little brother only he’s close to 50 years of age. I’ve been having fun on the show.”

“Once I got there and I met the people I realised it’s an opportunity of a lifetime,” McGregor said about coaching TUF

“I want to embrace it and put my coaches on. Show my approach to the game, show how my coaches handle training camp and fight preparation. It’s an amazing experience and I’m really enjoying it.”

“I learned that I never get it wrong,”

“I always predict correct. I predicted that I would KO [Mendes] inside two rounds. I bet a large sum of money and I won my bet. When I say I will put someone away in whatever time in whatever manner I say, it will happen. That’s what happened. I went in there, lit his body up and I put him away.

“Yet, you have supposed veterans and professionals of the game, or experts, speaking about a full camp. It just made me realise how many bums and rookies there really are in this game. They can’t understand that they have never seen clean body-shooting before like they saw in that fight. Myself and Chad understand where he was at in that position. He was shut down and he was broke.”

“There are a couple dates and venues in the line,”

“I believe [UFC brass] are heading out to Brazil to speak with Jose. For me, he is having a breakdown. I said this before. He’s looking for his exit from the game. The injury was an opportunity to delay the inevitable so he took it. Make no mistake, when UFC 189 was playing he was under his duvet praying that Chad Mendes would get the win.

“Him and his whole team were praying for that victory so they would not have to face me. I ran out and butchered Chad’s body in the knowledge that Jose would be looking with his sore ribs. I just see a fighter who has broke. I hope we can get him to show up, but we will see. All I know is what I knew July 11. I will be there and I will be victorious.”
