Conor McGregor suffered a horrific injury during his last UFC fight with Dustin Poirier last July. Conor broke his fibula and lost the fight via TKO. Since then, he has been calling out the champions of the sport, particularly Kamaru Usman.
Mike Tyson recently appeared on “The Fight Card,” and said he thinks Conor McGregor is jumping back into things way too soon. The former heavyweight champion of the world believes McGregor should take a few fights with weaker opponents to get back into the swing of things. Iron Mike thinks it would do wonders for Conor’s confidence.
“After a defeat, you should do a couple of fights to get your feet wet.
Conor, I think you should build your confidence up and go do what you do: win excitingly.”
Host Henry Cejudo suggested Tony Ferguson as a possible opponent for Conor McGregor’s return fight. Tyson said he is difficult to beat, despite his recent struggles. Mike thinks Conor should fight three bouts where he can get an easy win to prepare for a higher-profile match.
Conor McGregor has lost three of his last four fights. Confidence may be an issue. Injuries could also play a factor.
Mike Tyson thinks Conor McGregor has had his confidence broken by his recent failures and injury. If he wants to get back into top form, he will need to bite the bullet and take some more winnable fights. Time will tell if the infamously cocky McGregor agrees.
