Conor McGregor On Sparring With The Mountain
Bleacher Report – Ultimate Fighting Championship sensation Conor McGregor has given his take on what it was like to spar with “The Mountain” Hafthor Julius Bjornsson.
A video surfaced in late October showing the UFC interim featherweight champion in a playful fight with Bjornsson, known for his role as Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on HBO’s Game of Thrones. A report from MMA Junkie quoted McGregor bragging about his “victory”:
It was a lot of fun. That’s a big man – 6-foot-9, 400 pounds, and I still folded him up. I was hitting him with some shots – I had to hit him with some shots. He was trying to hit me, as well. People say, ‘He was taking it easy.’ He tried to grab me and tried to pull my head off and I defended – freed the head. I was like, this motherf—-r is so big, I have to start smacking him to the body. … But I sunk him good. Not even a ‘Mountain’ can take these shots from me.
Connor McGregor is coming across a little cocky here. I don’t think that is the image he is trying to portray if you ask me. Just kidding, you were thinking Chad has finally lost it. Maybe the blogging game is not for him. He doesn’t know anything about MMA. My retort is…you should know better. Nobody in the MMA blogging world has as much insight as me. I know this is Connor’s game and he does it very well. I actually think he developed his persona after reading some of my posts. I should sue the man for trying to be me. I would but I blew the lawyer fund on new cars and expensive clothes. See, the more I write the more I think Connor is stalking me. I will find out once and for all. Cough, cough. I am going to Las Vegas on December 12th and I am going to get beat up by Jose Aldo. Now, if Connor copies my plans we know he is trying to imitate the greatest MMA blogger that ever lived.
