The Notorious One was present for MTV’s Video Music Awards and somehow he managed to make a scene as he got into a brief altercation with Machine Gun Kelly and almost came to blows with him.
While speaking ESPN MMA’s DC & RC podcast, Daniel Cormier talked about Conor McGregor’s recent antics and feared the worst for him, stating that McGregor lives his gimmick like Ric Flair, which will be his undoing in the long run. while also mentioning Vince McMahon as an example of how he should conduct himself.
“You know what the crazy thing about McGregor is, is when I say the gimmick, I mean, the billionaire, right? With the strut, and the fancy cars, and the money. Because the reality is, it’s in the WWE, right? You get a character. Your character can be the billionaire. You can be Vince McMahon, right? Vince McMahon is the evil boss. But Vince McMahon when he hits that curtain in the back, he lets go of the evil boss. And he becomes Vince McMahon, the CEO and chairman of the WWE.
It’s the same with Ric Flair. When Ric Flair was Ric Flair, stylin’ and profilin’, kiss the girls and make them cry, ‘Woo!’, all that stuff. But when Ric Flair would hit the curtain in the back, he never stopped. He continued to live as Ric Flair. And ultimately, that was his undoing, right? That’s why at 60, you saw Ric Flair still wrestling. Because he had spent so much money; he had lived such a reckless life. It wasn’t sustainable. Conor McGregor is the fighter, but Conor McGregor also lives this big life. And that’s when I ask has that gimmick overtaken who Conor McGregor is as a person?”
Jorge Masvidal also recently stated that he would bet on Machine Gun Kelly beating Conor McGregor in a fight. Regardless, we certainly hope Conor McGregor realizes the error of his ways before it’s too late.
