Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, Conor McGregor is the promotion’s biggest star currently. However, his career is not the best right now. The Notorious (32) has fought three times and lost two of them to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier.
McGregor will fight Poirier on July 10 – for the third time – at UFC 264. However, he is not at his peak and some believe he may lose again.
Former UFC middleweight champion, Michael Bisping talked about The Notorious. “The Conor McGregor of old is just like the me of old. It doesn’t exist anymore. I’m a nice guy, I’m a pussy cat, but I used to be a bit of a nightmare. With Conor McGregor, it’s the same thing. The man’s loaded. He’s pulling up on $100million yachts and got million dollar watches. He gets chauffeured in Rolls Royces. Evander Holyfield said ‘it’s hard to get out and run at 6am when you’re sleepingin silk sheets’,” Bisping told “TalkSport.com”.
“Fighters, we’re hungry and want to turn it around. Maybe we’re cut from the same type of cloth or the wrong side of town. We like to fight and that’s our only hope. The dream is to make some money and turn your life around, he’s done that in a big way and he’s never going to go skint. That’s not an insult, that’s just the reality of the situation. It doesn’t mean he can’t go out there and have a great performance and win, because he can. It’s going to be a tough fight though,” Bisping stated.
