Cowboy: Conor lucky he did attack in Brooklyn not a gun state
Former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and a dozen his stupidest friends failed to intimidate current champ Khabib Nurmagomedov during an attack at UFC 223 in Brooklyn. McGregor and the gang that couldn’t gang straight did succeed in throwing a hand truck into a bus window, injuring two fighters to the point they couldn’t fight, among other injustices.
Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, in Singapore to promote his upcoming headline fight vs. Leon Edwards at UFC Fight Night 132 on June 23, 2018, at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, said McGregor is lucky the attack didn’t take place in Texas.
“Let me tell ya’ something – Singapore is not a gun state, and it’s a good thing that it didn’t happen in a state where people do carry weapons,” said Cerrone to Muhammad Sazali Abdul Aziz for the Straits Times. “Because it would have ended a lot differently in Texas or New Mexico. If I’m sitting on a bus and someone breaks the window, with that gang mentality… I’m pulling my gun! It’s going down, for sure.
“I don’t know if that was Conor’s way of getting back at Khabib to sell a potential fight in Russia or Ireland, that went really bad, really fast.”
“I just don’t like that side of the sport… We’re not WWE wrestlers, we are the best in the world at what we do,” he said, with a shake of the head. “So why don’t you carry yourself in a better manner? For example, I should be able to go for lunch right now with Leon, and be cordial. Everything bad he wants to do to me, he can do it in [June]. I don’t understand why you have to hate your opponent.”
“I would recommend [to Singaporeans] if they can’t make it to the Indoor Stadium on June 23, find a bar, TV, tune into a radio station, whatever they can.
“Because when Cowboy comes all the way to Asia, he’s going to kick some ass. My style is fast-paced, in-your-face, non-stop… Not take someone down, lay on them, that sort of boring fight. It’s going to be exactly what they want to see – I’ll be looking for a knockout.”
