Earlier in the week, while promoting the premiere of TUF 22, UFC interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor took a few shots at bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw.
While going back and forth with Urijah Faber, McGregor said that he told Faber to be weary of Dillashaw, his teammate, because he thinks he’s a ‘snake in the grass’ and will be disloyal to Faber and Team Alpha Male.
Well, the champ spoke on The MMA Hour and responded to the comment and had this to say:
“He’s been trying to get under Urijah’s skin and get him going. Conor sees that Urijah and Duane don’t get along, and the fact is that, he’s trying to call me a traitor, he’s trying to say I’m training with the enemy, and that a true fight for Urijah would be me, when really that’s not the case.”
Dillashaw also explained his training situation, going back and forth from Duane Ludwig to Team Alpha Male.
“I’m spending half my time with the team, I went and helped on The Ultimate Fighter, I run more of the practices at Team Alpha Male than Urijah does, I put my time in there with the team. For [McGregor] to talk about something that he has no idea, it’s so ridiculous, but you can tell he wants to get under Urijah’s skin, so he needs to do it.”
