Following his win over Dennis Bermudez at UFC 180, Ricardo Lamas became very vocal about his desire to fight Conor McGregor, and even told the UFC to stop protecting McGregor from wrestlers (See that HERE).
Lamas joined Submission Radio to discuss McGregor’s potential title shot if he defeats Dennis Siver in January.
“He’s a big name in the sport right now, so I think the UFC is kind of protecting him, not giving him wrestlers, and if he wants to get to a title shot I think he needs to fight a wrestler before doing that,”
“I think the big difference will be my wrestling. All his flashy moves won’t work when he’s on his back getting punched in the face.”
“I’ve had a lot of practice at being made fun of and making fun of people back, and I’ve been doing that my whole life. So if he wants to play that game I’m fine with it. I got picked on my entire life. If he wants to play this game, he’s going to lose and he’s going to lose horribly.”
In terms of how Lamas envisions the bout ending, ‘The Bully’ said the following:
“The ref pulling me off his unconscious body.”
