Donald Trump shouldn’t expect any support on the campaign trail from Irish UFC star Conor McGregor. TMZ cameras caught up with Conor after he arrived in Los Angeles from Dublin on Monday, and asked for his thoughts on Ronda Rousey’s shock UFC defeat a couple of weekends ago.
“It was a very tough fight…these things happen,” McGregor said. “Defeat is the secret ingredient to success and true champions can conquer that, overcome it and come back. I wish her all the best.”
He can’t say the same for White House aspirant Donald, who threw major shade at Ronda on Twitter after her loss, saying he was glad because she’s “not a nice person.”
Dubliner Conor’s words for the Trumpster? “Donald can shut his big fat mouth. I don’t give a f*** about Donald Trump,” he said.
“It’s easy for someone that’s not in there to comment, but it’s different when you’re in there,” CM added.
Up next for the self-styled Notorious is a huge pay-per-view fight in Las Vegas on December 12 against Jose Aldo. McGregor is a massive UFC star and the fight will take in millions. “I am not a company man. I am the company,” McGregor informed his 1.4 million Instagram followers on Monday. Given Ronda’s fall from grace, that’s a pretty accurate boast.
