Conor McGregor hasn’t won a fight since November of 2016. He’s 2-3 in his last five, including his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. And in his two previous losses to Mayweather and Khabib Nurmagomedov, the outcome never was in doubt.
That’s the reality of McGregor’s career for roughly the past three years.
But over in Fantasy Land, McGregor still owns boxing and MMA, even if the former UFC champ-champ holds no titles and hasn’t for quite some time.
And so, without further ado, here’s the latest version of McGregor pumping his chest on social media with a profane post aimed at former training partner Paulie Malignaggi and Nurmagomedov, whom Mcgregor blasted for being “broke b*tches” (via Instagram):
Let the record show. I like Paulie Malinaggi.
Here is a confrontation between us regarding a picture he was upset about.
Yes you heard that right.
I told him here, to his face “Don’t be bitching.” Common knowledge I would think for a fighting man.
Don’t be a bitch, bitching.
The same thing I said to khabib at the end of round 3. My round.
Don’t be bitching!
Every single round bitching to the referee.
He was even bitching in the fourth round from mount position.
It baffled me.
If anyone should have been saying anything to the referee, it should have been me in that 1st round. That round he held onto my legs for four minutes straight. With zero activity.
But a fight is a fight who gives a fuck. Crying to the referee like a proper bitch.
I was trying to dig my fingers into his Adams Apple.
Many individuals in the fight business, I have learned lately, are absolute bitches.
I know you’s are broke boys. But don’t be broke bitches.
What a weird post. I have no idea how McGregor managed to lump Malignaggi and Nurmagomedov into the same category, but OK.
Rumors circulated on social media this week that McGregor was in early negotiations to return to boxing against Malignaggi. The two men had a heated falling out as a result of their training together in the lead-up to Mayweather vs. McGregor. But Malignaggi has since disregarded those rumors as “bullsh*t.” But that at least explains the timing of this rant on Malignaggi.
As for bringing Nurmagomedov into it, I don’t even know what to say. McGregor apparently is boasting about taking one round of a fight in which he tapped out to a submission that hadn’t even been completely sunk in yet.
It’s all drivel coming from McGregor at this point if you ask me.
