McGregor: Miller Was ‘Under The Influence when he called me out’
By Evan Stoumbelis
“Notorious” is at it again; most recently during a recent appearance on UFC Tonight. It was announced earlier today that McGregor would face Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 46 as the headlining fight.
While Conor McGregor may only have 2 fights under the UFC banner, Notorious has managed to keep himself in the headlines despite a torn ACL suffered during his fight with Max Holloway which McGregor went on to win, extending his 10 fight MMA win streak, and 2 fight UFC win streak.
McGregor and Miller have been trash talking one another for quite some time now on social media. McGregor continued his trash talking with the following bit of interview gold.
“That man opened his mouth. He was under the influence of post-fight adrenaline. It has the same effect as alcohol. It makes you brave. He spoke with bravery, but guess what happened? It wore off. Now he’s faced with the reality that he’s going to face me July 19.
“Me coming back from this injury is a man possessed. I’m going to go in there, and I’m going to break him in the very first exchange.”
McGregor went on to take shots at featherweight champion Jose Aldo and contender Chad Mendes.
“I’ve been listening to everybody calling me out and saying this and saying that, and I’ve been forced to sit on the sideline. Now I’m back. Now I’m going to rip through him. I’m going to stomp Cole. Whoever’s next – Cub? I’ll break Cub. I’ll embarrass Chad. I’ll annihilate Jose.
“I’m coming to take over the division. It’s my division.”
UFC Fight Night 46: McGregor vs. Miller takes place July 19th from Dublin Ireland.
