Conor McGregor recently appeared on UFC tonight and discussed many things including his upcoming fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 178 in Vegas.
McGregor has received much more coverage which has drawn criticism from other featherweights.
“For me it’s all these little featherweights who are crying like girls,” said McGregor. ‘Why is he getting the headliner in his hometown? Why is he getting on the best card of the year?’
“For me, I’m in shape 24/7, 365 days a year, and I show up for fights. I don’t freeze, I come forward and I put people away. I know myself and they know who the new king is. There’s a new king in town.”
McGregor was practically kind about Poirier.
“I have nothing against him,” he said. “He’s a nice, humble hillbilly kid from a back town, but I have nothing against the guy. He has nothing for me. Coming against me, it’s not going to be a good night for him.
“When he wakes up with his nose plastered on the other side of his face, he’ll realize this is the next level guy. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what they think.”
“It’s on to Vegas, and I’ll put him away in one round and move on the crusade of eliminating this whole featherweight division one-by-one.”
