Conor McGregor Takes Aim At Nate Diaz, Frankie Edgar And Fabricio Werdum At MMA Awards
Conor McGregor took home the award for “Fighter of the Year” and “International Fighter of the Year” at the World MMA Awards on Friday. In typical Conor fashion he took aim at a bunch of fighters.
Here are some of the highlights.
“There’s another man that must be slayed, another champion that must be dethroned,” McGregor said when explaining why he wasn’t in attedance. “There’s more numbers that need to be broken. I need to feed all you bums. I need to feed every one you in the game so I’ve got to keep working because youse bums don’t work.
“You’ve got the heavyweight champion who’s a p—y pulling out with a sore toe. How’s the heavyweight champion going to pull out with a sore toe? What kind of champion is that?”
“The game is on its knees,” McGregor said. “I apologize I can’t be there at the awards but I’m out here putting it in, working, putting in the true work.
“The work it takes to keep every one of you fed. So thank you and thank me.”
“The who’s who of MMA I’m sure is there in their badly fitted suits, having a penny in their pocket,” McGregor said. “I heard Nate Diaz couldn’t even afford the flight over to Las Vegas for the ceremony. Frankie Edgar — I heard he’s dressed like a little sheik’s servant or something he’s dressed like I heard, struggling to make a few quid.”
“I’d love to be there to see it all, but unfortunately I’m out here grinding. Hard work pays as you can tell by looking at the numbers I brought in. By looking at everything that’s going round. By looking at the boss man saying ‘the first UFC fighter in history to make $100 million’. Hard work pays so take notes,” McGregor said.
“Stop holding bitterness deep in your bum soul. Stuck on $20,000 to show and $20,000 to fight. I wipe my ass with that money. I tip your wage, Nate, yeah.”
