Conor McGregor does not agree with the famous MMA coach Firas Zahabi`s prediction for an eventual rematch between the irish superstar and current featherweight champion Max Holloway. George St. Pierre’s head coach believes that Holloway will be victorious in the rematch and has some good arguments about it:
“Holloway has grown leaps and bounds since then,” Zahabi said in a Q&A on the Tristar Gym YouTube page. “Holloway would outpunch him, outwork him. He would do very much what (Nate) Diaz did, but more. I think McGregor got away with a lot of stuff, like the leg kicks against Diaz, but I don’t think he’ll have that against Holloway.
“Holloway has the same type of output as Diaz, the same kind of chin as Diaz. He’s more athletic than Diaz, he has more variety in his attacks, he has more kicking, kneeing and elbowing, and his chin is just phenomenal. So I really think he would take it in the later rounds. I think the blueprint for beating McGregor is more well understood by the roster.”
Conor’s respond to that was much more sharper and without futher explanation he just tweeted:
“Hey firaz. Young man afraid to get in and fight, himself. Stop talking about me like you know me, you twerp.
You are what age? Why are not in there yourself? Are you not up to it?
You rent dorms and hit a clock for a living.
Shut your pie, kid.”
