Conor McGregor slams entire featherweight division & Diego Sanchez

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Conor McGregor is a pocket Brock Lesnar – both reached remarkable level of fan interest by their second UFC fight. And McGregor won his first two, while Lesnar lost his debut, vs. Frank Mir.

Coming off a decision win over Max Holloway at UFN 26 in which the Irishman strained his knee, McGregor has called out pretty much the entire featherweight division.

When you want to overthrow a king you don’t worry about the jester, you go after the person sitting on the thrown.

The Manchester show referenced by McGregor is UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Munoz on October 26. The Vegas reference is likely to the tradition year end super card, this time on Dec 28.

McGregor explanded on the sentiment in an interview on FOX.
