Conor McGregor Talks “Haters” Ahead Of Saturday

Haters have been everywhere trying to bring Conor McGregor down since his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather was made official.

And that’s fine by the UFC lightweight champion.

McGregor will meet Mayweather this Saturday night in Las Vegas. “Notorious” admitted that he’s heard all the talk leading up to the fight during a recent conference call.

“It’s certainly motivating. The disrespect and the disregard to my skill set is disappointing,” he said. “I look at people so many times and their mind is closed. They’ve got a closed mind to how things can be done. It’s a set way and there’s no other way. Where if that was the case we’d never have reached across the waters and searched for other lands. And we’d never have went into space. Do you know what I mean? You’ve got to have an open mind and you’ve got to realize that there are other ways and there is a time and a place for every single moment.

“You’ve got to give respect for other disciplines and other styles. Like for instance, fighting is a complex game. There is a time and a place for every single attack and every single move. It’s about finding the correct timing for it. So when I hear the way they carry on and they disregard and disrespect, it is what it is. I use it as motivation and I look forward to going in and educating them. But at the same time I get it. I’m coming in; I’m supposed to be from another sport and so again, I understand where it’s at. But I’m just looking forward to August 26th, going in and proving what I’m saying and then educating the world on what martial arts are and giving the fans and everybody a good solid fight and earning my respect in this game also.”
