Brandao on McGregor: ‘Calling himself The Best Is Bull$h*t’

June 4, 2014 12:29 pm by BJPENN.COM News

“Saying that he’s the best in the world is bullshit. Obviously, he’s not. He knows that he’s not, and he has a lot to prove to be a top 10 in the UFC. Talking trash only makes me more motivated to train for the fight. While he’s talking, I’m training.”

“I don’t feel any pressure at all. I’ve been through a lot of things in my life, so fighting in Ireland, Brazil or United States doesn’t matter to me. I actually like this, to be honest. I’m sure that the arena will be full of Brazilians because there are a lot of Brazilians in Ireland. I know that the Brazilians will be there to support me.”

TUF winner, Diego Brandao finds himself coming in on short notice as a replacement for the injured Cole Miller, against Connor McGregor.

And he’s not buying the hype!

Are you?
