Conor McGregor had a very tough break at UFC 264, literally. His snapped leg made headlines and plenty of people have firm opinions about what’s next for Notorious.
Dana White confirmed a fourth fight between McGregor and Dustin Poirier will happen. If you ask Chris Jericho, Notorious is done.
Chris Jericho was watching UFC 264 like so many others. He commented on Keepin It 100 with Konnan about Notorious’ big loss. Conor McGregor is not impressing Le Champion anymore, that’s for sure.
“Conor’s done and I think everyone knows it,” Jericho said. “I think he knows it. I think the best thing that could’ve happened is that he snapped his ankle, because he would’ve lost in the second round. Herb Dean almost called it at the end of the first, but he was letting it go because it was towards the end and it’s a championship, million dollar fight. Not a championship but it was a million dollar fight. Those elbows in the corner man, once you get a guy down like that he’s finished.”
“So I think it was actually a stroke of fate that’s going to end up making them all more money that Conor broke his ankle. Because he would’ve been done in about another two minutes anyway. The only thing I would say for Dustin, if he’s going to take a number four, which I would say ‘go f**k yourself, I’m not doing it.’ I’d say ‘okay, you want number four? I want a 50-50 purse split with Conor.’ See what happens. If he can get 50-50, take it. If not, see you later buddy. What’s the point? Conor’s done.”
Conor McGregor won’t be back in the Octagon until 2022, and we’ll have to see if he can prove critics wrong. Jericho certainly didn’t hold anything back and he’s seen a lot of people come and go in the combat sporting world during his 30-year career.
