MMA’s ‘Bad Guy’, Chael Sonnen, recently gave his opinion on the Notorious one, Conor McGregor.

While talking on The MMA Hour, Sonnen said that he thinks all the media obligations that UFC is asking McGregor to do is just way too much.

“It’s crossed the line of being too much. I mean, that’s just the reality of the situation. Athletes go out, we’re kind of programmed to say the same thing we think we’re supposed to say. It’s too much on Conor right now, and media will ask him that. ‘Is it too much?’ So, you know, you don’t want to put some of those things in your world. You want to deny them and keep them out so you can take care of business, but yeah, of course it’s too much. When a guy is on the opposite side of the country and he’s got three more stops before he can get home, he’s 22 pounds overweight, he’s nine days before a fight, and he’s running on two hours sleep because of all of it, it’s too much.”

Do you think all the press and appearances will hurt McGregor?
