UFC News: Conor McGregor says everyone in the UFC has to do what they are told, except him
UFC featherweight champion, Conor McGregor, is ready to attempt to make history this weekend when he is locked, inside the Octagon, with the Lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez. McGregor’s shot at UFC history has sparked much controversy amongst fighters in the UFC, who believe the Irishman is being favoured by the higher-ups.
However, The Notorious one feels he runs this game, after everything he has done for the sport. Here’s what he said ahead of UFC 205:
"Listen, everyone in this game does what the f*ck they're told. Everyone but me, because I run this game. So I don't give a f*ck about all of that. They told you you're on the prelims, you're on the f*cking prelims. They told you to fight, now you're on the f*cking Fight Night. Nobody has no say in this but me. I'm the only one who can say anything about anything. Everyone else does what they're told, and rightfully f*cking so.
McGregor is coming off of a two-fight tenure in the UFC’s welterweight division in his rivalry with Nate Diaz. The former 145-pound competitor has packed on a tonne of muscle, since moving dramatically in weight, and much has been made about McGregor’s ability to cut the weight once again.
Now McGregor will move to a weight class, in which he will be allowed to retain some of his muscle mass.
Alvarez is coming off of a spectacular first round knockout over Rafael dos Anjos to win the 155-pound throne, in which he called out ‘The Notorious One’ after his win in an attempt to get an ‘easy’ fight.
Alvarez and McGregor will meet in the main event of UFC 205 for the lightweight title live on pay-per-view (PPV), from the Madison Square Garden arena in New York City on November 12, 2016.
