Prior to UFC 202, boxing champion Canelo Alvarez revealed in a video interview that he was predicting Nate Diaz would once again emerge victorious over Conor McGregor.
That didn’t sit too well with Conor McGregor, who indirectly fired back at Alvarez, saying that Alvarez was “cherry picking” his opponents, while he continued to seek out the toughest fights.
In the wake of UFC 202, Alvarez was informed of McGregor’s comments during an interview, and he wasn’t too pleased.
Canelo got a bit fired up when told @TheNotoriousMMA referred to him as cherry picker. He chimed back Conor "gasses out after two rounds."
