UFC 194: Conor McGregor Argues He’s “Carrying This Whole Damn Game”
By FCF Staff
Since Ronda Rousey was crushed by Holly Holm last month, many have argued Conor McGregor is poised to become MMA’s biggest star, but the latter may think he already is.
McGregor is scheduled to fight featherweight champ Jose Aldo at UFC 194 on December 12th, and if he wins, the brash fighter could very well become the promotion’s top draw. If he loses, then the critics will quickly argue that McGregor was way over hyped. Since Rousey’s defeat, the former bantamweight champ has been heavily scrutinized.
Well, recently the UFC held a media call to promote Aldo-McGregor. “Notorious” was asked about the comparisons that have been made between him and Rousey, and here is some of what McGregor had to say (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“In reality we are two different people on two different paths. I don’t really focus on her situation or anyone else’s situation for that matter. I’m just doing what I’m doing and what I’m doing, I’m carrying this whole damn game and I love it. It feels light. I’m carrying it on my shoulders, but it honestly feels light to me.
“I feel like I’m doing single-leg squats with the whole game on my shoulders because it ain’t nothing.”
UFC 194 will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
