UFC featherweight Conor McGregor didn’t take lightly to his upcoming opponent Chad Mendes, talking to and respecting his former scheduled opponent Jose Aldo.
Mendes sent out a tweet in Portuguese direct to Aldo, telling him that he respects him and can’t wait to fight him a third time. Aldo responded and said he respects him as well and said his fans will be on Mendes’ side come fight night.
Well, McGregor thinks that was a weak move, here’s what he said to the media on Wednesday:
“I think [Mendes] is crumbling already, to be honest. I just, I see forced. I see a forced persona or something. He’s just different. And then the little back and forth tweets with Jose, and he’s talking in [Portuguese]. ‘Can I have your fan support, please,’ and all this bull. What is that? That’s women s–t. That’s not even, that’s disrespectful to women. I don’t know what that is. That’s coward s–t, is what that is.”
