Conor McGregor remains one of the most well known MMA fighters in the history of combat sports and his accolades over the years speak for themselves. The Notorious is also known to trash talk often, with varied results.
While Conor McGregor has backed up his trash talks in the past, more often than not, they have also resulted in embarrassing defeats for him. McGregor also doesn’t hold any title in the UFC.
Ever since his loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, Conor McGregor has been on a downward spiral and upset many people with his controversial actions, most notably when he took a shot at Khabib’s deceased father. This definitely drew the ire of fans and peers who felt Conor McGregor went too far.
While speaking on Real Quick with Mike Swick, Khabib’s coach Javier Mendez talked about Conor McGregor’s recent unprofessional behavior. Mendez stated that Conor McGregor is UFC’s uncontrollable money cow, so their coaches can’t say anything to him.
“And this has nothing to do with Khabib’s father. This has nothing to do with those comments on COVID. We already know what he thinks on Khabib. That’s fine. But you make a comment like that, all the money in the world isn’t going to allow you to get away with some of the stupid things you say.”
“He’s been saying a lot of stupid things, and it’s obvious to me that his coaches, which I think they’re good guys, can’t control him. And what do you do if you have a guy like that? He’s your money cow.”
Conor McGregor is already making a recovery in rapid fashion. We will have to wait and see what shape Conor McGregor will be in once he returns to the Octagon as McGregor is expected to be out of action for a year.
