It still feels like yesterday, yet Ronda Rousey’s upset loss against Holly Holm seems to be catching more debate and it will not pass without getting a statement from the loudest mouth in the UFC – Connor McGregor.
“Very tough fight,” McGregor said.
“Holly fought a great fight. I have much respect. This is the fight business. These things happen. Ronda will be back. True champions come back. And congratulations to Holly, the new champion.”
McGregor, who was submitted twice in his MMA career, recalls that his defeats made him the man that he was today. The last time McGregor experienced a loss was back in 2010 under the hands of Joseph McDuffy. Since then, McGregor went on to win 14 consecutive times.
Just recently after the Rousey’s loss to Holm, Donald Trump’s tweet about Rousey’s demise circulated the internet like wildfire. The tweet had grudge roots with Rousey publicly announcing that she will never vote for Trump, who is currently running as the president of the United States of America.
McGregor is made aware on who made the bashful statements (including Trump) against Rousey and in his own fashion, shuts down all negative comments about Ronda’s loss.
“Donald can shut his big, fat mouth,” McGregor said. “I don’t give a f*ck about Donald Trump.”
With that, McGregor left a great advice to everyone who had experienced defeat in life that it is necessary in gaining success.
“Defeat is the secret ingredient to success,” he said. “True champions can conquer that, overcome it and come back. So I wish her all the best and that’s it.”
McGregor is to face the #1 pound-for-pound fighter in MMA, Jose Aldo this coming December 12, 2015 at the MGM Grand arena. Connor looks to end Aldo’s undefeated record – which is similar to Rousey – and give him a special lesson in life as it is.
