Conor McGregor Gives Props to Max Holloway and Would Fight Him at Lightweight

On Friday last week, Conor McGregor made his first major public appearance since his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

We didn’t learn much from the man, other than he has options open to pretty much fight anyone he wants to in his UFC…

“I SONNED THAT YOUNG BOY. I’M NOT MAD AT [MAX HOLLOWAY]. HE’S DONE A GREAT JOB. HE’S CLIMBED UP AND CLAIMED THAT FEATHERWEIGHT BELT. YOU SEE SOME FIGHTS, AND SO DO THE PUBLIC, YOU SEE HIM GO IN THERE AND YOU WATCH HIM WIN OR LOSE AND YOU WATCH HOW THEY ACT AND HOW THEY CARRY ON. HE LOST TO ME AND HE TOOK IT ON THE CHIN, HE KEPT HIS MIND FRAME SHARP. SAME WITH [DUSTIN] POIRIER, HE’S ANOTHER GUY WHO KEPT HIS MIND FRAME SHARP AND CARRIED ON. [EDDIE] ALVAREZ AS WELL, HE TOOK IT WELL – YOU’VE GOT TO TAKE IT ON THE F-KING CHIN.”
