There is always calm before the storm and this clip shows you behind the scenes footage compiled of Conor “The Notorious” McGregor in perfect (Smack Fu) form. The Irishman (18-2 MMA 6-0 UFC) turned heads with victories over Marcus Brimage, Max “Blessed” Holloway, and finishes over Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier, Dennis Siver with most recently, at UFC 189, over Chad Mendez. This storm may be a little different.
There should be no debate if McGregor deserves a title shot. The debate was whether or not it was his “lyrical mic” skills and bold predictions that may of gotten him center stage at “the big show” sooner.
Nonetheless, the war is pushing closer to the walls of the featherweight “Kingpin” Aldo Jr. (25-1 MMA 7-0 UFC) and that “mental warfare” was only the first stage in the Irishman’s plan to dethrone the king.
