Conor McGregor is an MMA legend.
After beating Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, he became the first fighter to hold two belts simultaneously adding the featherweight to his lightweight crown.
Being such an iconic fighter in the sport means that everyone wants to beat you.
That won’t be possible for a little while as, after beating Alvarez, Mcgregor announced he would be taking a break from UFC because his wife, Dee Devlin, is expecting their first child.
When Mcgregor does return - whether it’s back to UFC or WWE - there will be plenty of people that would love to take him on.
McGregor is more than familiar with opponents ‘trash-talking’ him before a fight before the Irishman - more often than not - knocks them out.
McGregor himself has recognised this trend and has published a brilliant video of what his opponents say before - and then after - fighting him.
Diego Brandao, Dustin Poirier, Dennis Siver, Chad Mendes, Jose Aldo and Alvarez all feature in the video and it’s simply epic.
Take a look below:
As you can see, the attitude of the fighters changes dramatically after they have been beaten by McGregor.
It goes from a massive disrespect for him to, well, massive respect after they have been beaten by him. Maybe you need to have been knocked out by McGregor to fully appreciate his incredible skills.
