Conor McGregor: ‘Has-Been Diego Sanchez Belongs In Bellator’
“The guy (Diego Sanchez) is a has-been.He should be in Bellator with the rest of the has-beens. There’s no doubt about it.
Let’s go back way back to where it really started. In the leadup to my Max Holloway fight in Boston, when I was doing all my media campaign and my media workout and all that to do, that has been loser was all over Twitter slinging me and saying ‘who is this guy, Holloway is going to own him,’ tweet after tweet after tweet. And even then, I didn’t acknowledge it. I said, ‘that guy’s not in my path, I don’t give a s— about that guy, let him say what he wants.
“I’m thinking OK who’s next, who do I want next?” McGregor sad. I want anyone and everyone in that top 10. I’m doing this interview on the top 10, and they asked me about the top 10 and I give my honest opinion on everyone …. I gave my honest opinion for guys I want to face. Excuse me for wanting to face guys in my top 10. I apologize. And then this has been gets involved once again saying I have no respect.”
“So I responded, I call him the fattest, slowest, sloppiest martial artist I’ve ever laid eyes on,” McGregor said. “I told him I’d go to 170, I’d whup his fat ass easy. … He was the one who started about me. I gave my opinion on the Top 10. Nobody else. I had my eyes up on the top 10. I ignored what Diego was saying on the leadup to the Holloway fight. Then I said OK, I’ll push the top 10 aside and I’ll go after Diego Sanchez a little bit.”
UFC featherweight, Conor McGregor had some choice words for his career nemesis, Diego Sanchez.
The two fighters have been battling it out over social media for months and while neiter man wants to submit to the other, McGregor has at least agreed to making the shift up two-divisions to face the larger man in Sanchez.
McGregor also touched on the recent accusations from UFC middleweight, Luke Barnatt, who accused the Irish fighter of buying twitter followers.
“Silliest thing I’ve ever watched in my life. A light heavyweight eight-foot stick of s— from England, talking absolute s— that he knows nothing about. It was the weirdest s—, watching the jealousy come out of the man’s pores. A man who isn’t even in my own dominion. I thought it was the funniest thing ever. All I know is, when the door shut and the bell rings, no one does it better than me. I walk the walk, I don’t just talk the f— talk. I’m going to walk through that entire top 10.”
No Stranger to the call-out McGregor also discussed Cole Miller, and the challenge he threw out following his last fight.
“That’s a fight that’s interesting to me. Cole’s all right, I don’t mind him. This f— sport is crazy. I’m just being me.”
