Matt Brown On Conor McGregor: At This Point He’s A Bum

UFC veteran Matt Brown has made it clear that in his opinion Conor McGregor is no longer deserving of being held in as high regards as he once was due to his recent results in the Octagon and his antics outside of the cage.

“He’s a nobody, in my opinion,” Brown said on Michael Bisping’s podcast. “He was amazing, I give him props for all that he did, but at this point he’s a bum.”

“You can headline that, and it won’t be bullsh*t. Conor, I think he’s lost like four or his last five. He hasn’t f*cking done nothing.

“Everything you see, it’s him drinking and getting coked up, or he’s juiced out of his mind. That’s f*cking bum life to me. All that money don’t make you not a bum. You’re still a bum to me, bro. When you step in the cage, you’re still a bum to me.”

McGregor appeared to irritate the 42-year-old Brown recently after declaring that he intended to beat ‘The Immortal’s’ record for the most KO victories in the UFC after watching him knockout Court McGee earlier this month.

“Matt Brown, at 42 years of age, now holds the joint highest KO’s inside the UFC with 13KO’s,” McGregor had wrote on Twitter.

“Him and ‘The Beast’ Lewis are tied. I hold 8 KO’s inside the UFC currently, at 34 years of age.

“I’m getting this record.”

“I’ll fight you for it,” Brown had responded, which McGregor then branded as a “woeful attempt” to set up a fight between the two.
