Conor McGregor tells critics to stop moaning and put in the work to reach his level

While Conor McGregor is busy preparing for his historic battle with Eddie Alvarez on November 12, he’s fully aware of what his critics are saying about him.

McGregor has the chance to become the first-ever fighter to hold two world titles in two different weight divisions at the same time when he battles lightweight champion Alvarez at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden.


Most of the criticism stems from the fact that the Irishman is yet to defend his featherweight crown – which he captured last year – and is skipping the line to get another championship opportunity.

However, Notorious see’s it an entirely different way.

He believes he deserves the chances, and there’s no favouritism from the UFC because his work ethic can’t be matched, and has hit out at the less active fighters in the organisation.

Speaking on his personal website, he said: “Who is going out there, time and time again, back to back to back to back, putting it all on the line and continuing to show up?


“They all say I’m all talk. I look at them and say they’re all talk, because I’m the one in here fighting every week.

“I only had a five round war with a guy three times the size of me, and now I’m back again, and all I hear is complaining, moaning.

“You want this money? You want this? You want what I got? You’ve got to put in the work. And as far as I’m seeing, nobody’s putting in the work.

“Everybody’s talking, everybody’s thinking ‘just because Conor has it, I should have it’. No, no. I didn’t always have it; there’s a reason why I have it. I had to work to get it, and here I am still working. While they’re talking.

It’s difficult to argue against the point he’s making.

We’d love to see him defend the titles against the deserving opposition, but within the last two years, he’s already faced off against Dennis Siver, Chad Mendes, Jose Aldo and Nate Diaz twice.

The Alvarez bout marks his sixth outing inside of the Octagon in under two years, and it’s a pretty impressive run so far.
