Conor McGregor: I’m Going To Stomp Cole, Embarrass Chad And Annihilate Jose

Irish phenom and UFC featherweight Conor McGregor has made a big impression since joining the promotion-not only by scoring a great knockout over Marcus Brimage and beating Max Holloway while injured, but by putting himself up there with Chael Sonnen and Jon Jones in the list of greatest MMA trolls. (Sorry Entity, McGregor knocked you out of the top three).

Beefs with Diego Sanchez, Cub Swanson, and new UFC Fight Night 46 opponent Cole Miller have really helped to put ‘The Notorious’ on the map. Miller called out ‘Colin McGruber’ in hilarious fashion after defeating Andy Ogle at Fight Night 30, and now the two will headline the Dublin event in July. Speaking with UFC Tonight, McGregor made his feelings towards Miller clear once again:

“That man opened his mouth,” McGregor said. “He was under the influence of post-fight adrenaline. It has the same affect as alcohol. It makes you brave. He spoke with bravery, but guess what happened? It wore off. Now he’s faced with the reality that he’s going to face me July 19. Me coming back from this injury is a man possessed. I’m going to go in there, and I’m going to break him in the very first exchange.”

McGregor entered the UFC with a ton of hype behind him, and it’s hard to argue against his performances thus far, but he would be well advised to not overlook any fighter at this level. Call outs of Jose Aldo and the top five at featherweight may have been a little early, but you also have to admire the guy’s confidence.

“The knee to me is a distant memory,” McGregor said. “I’m done talking about the knee. I’ve spoke about it a long, long time. I am done now. I got the all-clear, and somebody is going to pay. First in line is Cole Miller, July 19 in my hometown in Dublin. I’ve been listening to everybody calling me out and saying this and saying that, and I’ve been forced to sit on the sideline,” McGregor said. “Now I’m back. Now I’m going to rip through him. I’m going to stomp Cole. Whoever’s next – Cub? I’ll break Cub. I’ll embarrass Chad. I’ll annihilate Jose.

“I’m coming to take over the division. It’s my division.”

That’s about the boldest statement I’ve heard from a fighter this year, apart from the Davis-Jones ‘cookie’ saga, but I’ve always felt that McGregor is a legit beast. Having followed MMA and C-McG’s career for a long time, I’d be lying if I said I was on the fence about the Dublin bad boy. Although he has the raw talent, and gift of the gab, featherweight is a very tough division.

At some point, the pivotal match that McGregor seeks will come, and he will truly have to walk the walk. After all the talking is done, will ‘The Notorious’ make it to the title?

        Im not picking on Conor in fact I like him, my point is its all promotion these fighters are doing, get you panties out of a bunch and stop judging them like you know them based off their promoting.

    “He was under the influence of post-fight adrenaline. It has the same affect as alcohol. It makes you brave" LOL Can't blame this kid for being so confident and using the old Chael Sonnen strategy. The shit that this kid comes up with is pure gold and will surely get in his opponents heads. Say whatever you want about him 3 people have called him out in the last 2 or 3 months, when was the last time that happened?

      Bisping

        No someone calls out Bisping every now and then. I'm talking about in the span of 2 or 3 cards, 3 fighters called out Conor. Its also a different situation. Bisping has been highly ranked and others want his position on the rankings. Fighters are calling out Conor purely based on his trash talking.

    I dont like the way Travis Browne looks with that funny haircut lol

    This guy is smart when it comes to promotion. How many other fighters with so few fights have got the media this guy gets? He'll end up earning a lot more than guys who have been around much longer in no time if he keeps winning while doing this.

    Unlikely he's going to accomplish all that, but you got to love the smack. Although I do think he believes it :)

    The fear in your eyes, betray the lie on your tongue Mr. McGregor! :-)

    I'm sure this mick is well experienced in the affects of alcohol hahahahahahaahaha

    I believe he has the confidence and that showed in his entry fights into the UFC, he was already more comfortable than his octagon experienced opponents. The guy believes he's the best but he is going to get a lot of hate from all this. He is taking the road less travelled by and it will be a tough one.

    He's actually a good guy, he just has to play the bad guy and hype up the fights for UFC. They do put pressure on these guys… especially since they have invested into him, costs for his knee injury etc etc… they need to get their moneys worth. What better way to get it back then to promote fights by "motivating" the fighter to speak up.
    I wish this guy all the best!
