Kenny Florian On Conor Mcgregor Apologising To Khabib For His Trash Talking During Their FightFebruary 3, 2019
Can you believe that Connor shocked all this up to pre-fight height you know there is audio of Conor McGregor saying took of Evenor Mago met up at the end of I think the third round it’s only business right and certainly a lot of the things he said crossed a line in the opinion of many you know I mean.
Public opinion really seems.
Split on this but it seemed to me that Conor chalked a lot of this up to pre fight height and.
That he would have been willing to bury the hatchet as he has done with Nate Diaz you know the what I will say cat-like McGregor say what you want about him but the point I was trying to make and maybe I didn’t articulate it well on pay-per-view is that Conor in defeat has been humble and has been sportsman like to his opponent and I.
Think he thought that he could get there with kabhi who was certainly sorely mistaken I agree listen you saw the bad blood between McGregor and Nate Diaz and then the fact that they went into their rematch and now you hear Conor.
McGregor saying great things about Nate Diaz as he should you know showing him respect saying he is gonna grant him a trilogy that Nate gave him a rematch he’s gonna do the same eventually you know I think in Connors mind he was thinking hey listen this is business and at the end.
Of the day guess what Habib made more money in that fight than he ever has in his whole career probably made more money in that fight than his whole the rest of his career combined 100% does that justify the actions of Conor no.
But um I think in Carters mind he’s thinking hey man listen I’m just trying to make this as big as.
Possible blah blah blah and also there was a part of him that says I’m going to do my best to get khabib off of his game the best that I can as well and that kind of backfired here’s the problem can you do that against Habib that’s probably that the wrong thing right now Habib.
Go and retaliate can he retaliate sure but he has to be prepared for those repercussions as well the same way Conor had to be prepared for all those repercussions so you know.
Isn’t the end of it in my opinion I think we will see a rematch I think there’s going to be a lot of fines levied probably on both sides.
I think there’s going to be fighters that are banned from certain organizations the UFC included this is not a good situation however I think there’s a lot of great lessons that we can learn from this yeah well I mean I agree with that if we can learn something to move on I think that’s huge but uh man I don’t know I just think it was it was so expected that it just I don’t know I you know business I don’t like the money thing.
Man yeah he made more money but you know what maybe this is a guy that didn’t give his shit and he’d rather you know pray every day and be.
With his family and have less money it’s not always about money man you know it’s it’s really not and that’s that’s where the mistake is made I mean it’s like health is wealth you know what I mean like you could have all the money in the world if you.
Don’t have your health and it only takes you to experience this to realize it it doesn’t mean shit there-there was to compete no absolute listen there’s two competing philosophies right for Conor yeah yes my fight but he’s going listen I gotta make as much money as I can and that’s what he’s gonna do and then for habibi’s like I like.
Smashing people I like I like testing myself I like you know saying that I’m the best fighter in the world and there were just two contrasting styles to competing philosophies and they collided and you know look look yeah that that’s really what it is I say in a nutshell you know I mean one guy he’s all about the money and one guy really doesn’t give a shit you know what I mean and he’s not willing to sell his fuckin soul for the money it’s like Damn Yankees you know what he mean.
Selling his soul for the money will he be happy knowing that EP fucking quit in three fights is that money gonna make.
Up for that maybe not to me it isn’t you know I mean I don’t get it you know I mean I I.
Really don’t get it but you’re right they’re just you know it’s like politics is just different views on you know what you believe in and yeah I guess you know you stick with the people that a like-minded and you know whatever the people had a rule about money is like you’re an idiot you know what I mean you make the money you know they can’t even see anything else and it.
Feels so their soul will degrade themselves they don’t care that’s not.
The people that I like you know what I mean it’s just not it doesn’t and powerto i’m.
Happy made the money I think it’s great but are you happy acting like a buffoon it’s running your fucking son for the money yes well I grow up your son never saw you win a fucking fight are you happy with that is that what you want you never saw you want a fight so far well it goes back and looks and you’re barking and you yell and.
You’re in the guy’s face you’re kicking you’re punching you screaming.
You’re insulting people I thought like you see you want to leave be my guest man I don’t care I say at some point there’s gonna be a day of reckoning and I hope you could.
Deal with it because right now it’s not looking good man I think if you know I don’t know me and if that’s my kid I’m going fucking bidder.
Yeah well no and I know you have a strong opinion on that and I think a lot of that was really well put I feel like Conor McGregor may have some regret this time around I think he’s sick of the legal circus and even though when he was throwing punches in the.
Fight after the fight on this evening they were done in my opinion in.
Self-defense right Zubair to who gob is coming at you UFC featherweight he’s coming at you and Conor McGregor let’s not forget he was the competing athlete here tonight not one of the athletes that was jumping over the fence but I do think that maybe this will at least make him think about some of the things that come out of his mouth I’m not saying he’s gonna change course but I don’t think.
He loves this whole charade necessarily as much as he might let it yeah but Johnny it the question is this do you think it’s right for that guy never to fight the UFC and Conor is still being able to fight after trying to kill a couple of.
