Lee was commenting on the downfall of McGregor, who not only lost back-to-back fights to Dustin Poirier, dropping to 1-3 at 155 pounds, but also lost the respect of his teammates after his “classless” behavior during his UFC 264. fighting campaign.

“I see a guy who is very frustrated and who stays with the same old style. It doesn’t show any growth in your game or who you are as a person when you trust the same things, ”Lee told James Lynch (transcribed by Adam Martin). “But it has gone to a different level. I do not know. Drugs are hell. Drugs really get you out of it. I do not know. However, good luck to him. It seems like you are going through a difficult time, and it happens. But for me, as a competitor, I never looked at it anyway. But of course, that fight still interests me, why not? Why wouldn’t you do it? But I hope I can fix it. “

McGregor was known to be just as dangerous on the mic as he was in the cage, prompting President of Promotion Dana White to call “Notorious” the UFC version of Muhammad Ali, one of the biggest trash talkers in the world. all the times.

It didn’t work on this waterproof enemy though.

It is important to note that McGregor has never failed a drug test, whether in MMA or boxing, and outside of claims like this, there is no solid evidence to suggest that “Notorious” is anything but a promoter of himself in voice aloud.

Short-tempered.
