Faber on Conor McGregor: ‘He’s Got A Whole Nation Of People That Have Nothing Else To Cheer For’

Conor McGregor


MMA vet Urijah Faber was a guest host on the recent episode of Team Alpha Male Radio and talked about a wide range of topics. Aside from talking about his fight with Frankie Edgar, Faber touched on another fighter who is making waves in the UFC. When asked about which fight would be bigger, a second fight with Jose Aldo or a fight with Conor McGregor, Faber said McGregor would be a bigger fight because of the popularity factor. Here’s some of his comments on ‘Notorious’.

“He’s got a whole nation of people that have nothing else to cheer for.”

“I think it’s fun, this sport needs guys like Conor. Conor’s not just a talker he’s a great fighter. He’s a guy that backs up what he says and he’s making headlines. Especially for Ireland, I’ve seen some hot Irish women but all the dudes over there are pretty mangled looking. Conor, just not having freckles and bright red hair makes him like a super male model over there. The ability to not have a face full of freckles and red hair steps his game up tremendously in Ireland. They’ve got a hero and he’s good.”
