Conor McGregor is one of the most popular MMA fighters in the history of the sport and is a huge draw for the UFC, garnering insane pay-per-view buys for every UFC event he headlines. On top of that he is a very smart businessman who knows how to spend his money wisely.
Notorious is always open to trash talking his opponents but it seems in the past couple of years, he has not been able to back up what he’s been saying, as evident from his loss against Dustin Poirier earlier in the year.
While speaking on Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin podcast, MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz believes that Conor McGregor will lose to Dustin Poirier again. He went on to put McGregor on blast, stating that McGregor is nothing more than a shell of his former self and that he is a stepping stone for other UFC fighters.
“Now we have McGregor fighting Dustin Poirier, right? They are going to fight each other and probably McGregor is going to quit again. He is a quitter, he quits. To me, he is irrelevant. He is a guy who is like a high-end prostitute. Now people want to go out on a date with him to show ‘hey, I have a pretty girl.’
Fighters, they fight him and they get this clout, they get the look and they get this stigma from fighting Conor McGregor but they don’t understand Conor McGregor hasn’t won in three years. Now, for all these guys he has just become a stepping stone. You make money when you fight Conor McGregor because he is a draw right? But going to last for?”
McGregor is certainly focused on his upcoming fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 on July 11th in their third fight together. Both of them currently have a win over the other, so we will have to see who will become the definite winner in the high profile rivalry.
