Kenny Florian On Conor Mcgregor Apologising To Khabib For His Trash Talking During Their FightFebruary 3, 2019
Board or inflict harm by throwing that Dali D do you think that’s fair let’s just start with all right well you know the UFC cuts my paycheck but do I think the punishments have been well no no I’m saying no I mean I’m not gonna sit.
Here and tell you outside of look in it do you think that’s fair no I know I’ll tell you as a super employee that the punishments have not been consistent you know but I just think there are a lot.
Of layers and a lot of hierarchy dynamics and things and I also think.
Too in Conor McGregor can flow we have this generational guy who puts our second biggest.
Superstar to shame at least in terms of monetary value and I do think that for better or for worse and I think for most people for worse this guy.
Is a cash game ow that this sport has never seen before and the sport is going to never see thereafter and I think a lot of people are swallowing some pride and some moral things and cashing on the cow yeah that and and also that was premeditated that there was a.
Video of him saying that he was gonna go and and you know hurt Conor for those words and all that.
Tough if you’re it’s a tough situation man that is a tough situation because again zoo buyer is that that’s his Nana that’s him yeah house yeah he’s not kabhi Ben he’s not Conor so the fact that he was in there I mean he doesn’t really get a pass that that’s okay so when your philosophy if you’re the governor and you kill somebody and you’re a homeless person and you kill somebody there’s different treatment no I I.
Don’t think there’s anything to do it I felt I don’t think he was involved in the fight period yeah but you know what I’m saying like yeah I just I I just would like to see it stop and treat everybody fairly that’s all I’m saying but on a lighter note that real estate agent didn’t.
Do that fucking bad did he notice.
Me let’s just switch it to him it at this point one day notice trained for a three-round fight look five rounds what was that and went the distance I don’t know yes al Iaquinta deserves all the credit in the world and we do want to spend the last five minutes we have with you on the actual fight because one question we had asked on this.
Podcast was how would have even hermano met I’ve handled.
The walk the big fight atmosphere and everything that went with it say what you want about his actions after the fight everything up until he finished Conor McGregor in my opinion from Thursday September 20th that first faceoff in New York City to Herb Dean pulling him off of Conor he handled himself brilliantly he I mean he couldn’t he just dismissed that narrative and then some he made.
Me feel like I wasted a whole lot of hot air talking about how.
He would handle that moment and on the.
Other side I thought Conor looked great all week but all of a sudden on fight night it seemed like his color was gone his confidence didn’t seem there the smile wasn’t there there were maybe some rumblings about some things some circumstances backstage but khabib handled the fight part of this with flying.
Probably is the best you know most dominant force in the game as advertised no question about it and I got to tell you when kind of walked in that ring I was like wow I think this guy’s actually buying into his own bullshit I saw a guy dough you know the day.
Of reckoning was coming very short ya know what I mean and he.
Just he looked like he was he knew it himself but he he still he bought into that persona man I do believe this guy deep down inside at one time was the martial artist I think he’s around some good.
People but you know you got to stay grounded man and I don’t know something you have to have some core values that you’re not willing to separate with and that’s what I would like to see from the guy you.
Know what I mean just a total.
Change your going and fight you know that’s what you’re about you’re a martial artist but this other shit is just getting old to me and I could because I’m.
Getting old you know but to me it’s just it’s fucking but people I’m talking about like wow they knew this for years and it’s just coming to fruition for them you know what I mean and I thought then that’s the thinking you can make a case for even a where this guy goes down but you know two-time.
Different weight champ I don’t even know I don’t know what I’m looking at at this point having confidence is such a balancing act as well because it’s the same.
Thing that phew you fuels you to be successful but it’s very easy to go way too far and believe things and have your reality skewed to the point where.
You know now you’re just going too far now you’re not focused on what you do at the task at hand so yeah that’s a Kenny that’s.
A great point of being with all the money and all it is now he’s in trouble I mean Kenny properly.
Trained for a fight Kenny make corrections at third you know what I mean and he’s got a.
Little the money and all of this stuff.
Get that wrestling down you know you know what I knew was going to be bad when Jordan Burroughs put out a tweet but saying something to the effect of the guy with the loudest mouth isn’t always the toughest guy something like that you know what I mean so that was a guy that they supposedly brought in you.
Know to help him with the wrestling you know yeah they wanted to they wanted to or something there was Todd yeah they never know but yeah that was a very telling tweet that guy put.
Out basically saying it’s a cocky shit you know well I I do think you’re underselling Conor McGregor the fighter and even though Habib represented probably the biggest monetary gain for him next to Nate Diaz he deserves some modicum.
Of credit for taking what is ubiquitously regarded as far and away the worst matchup for him in this division so.
I think their most of the top ten at 155 pounds I still think Conor McGregor beats so maybe we could have a little side wager at some point down the line when I’m no.
Longer employed by the UFC I think you’re selling them a little bit short as I said this after the mayweather fight at first.
They said he’ll never win another fight in the UFC back – a lot of people over here now I’m just going to change it he’ll never win another five round.
