Conor McGregor fires back twerp coach Firas Zahabi after Max Holloway rematch prediction

Conor McGregor Firas Zahabi UFC


Conor McGregor and Max Holloway first fought in August 2013, where “The Notorious” emerged victorious.

It was Holloway’s last taste of defeat and had since gone on a 13-fight win streak that included five post-fight bonuses and two successful title defenses.

McGregor, meanwhile, went on a 7-2 run, incurring losses to Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The latest update is Tristar Gym coach Firas Zahabi recently spoke on an ‘Ask me Anything’ session. Zahabi shares his thoughts as current featherweight champion Max Halloway to emerge victorious in the second fight.

“I think Holloway has grown leaps and bounds since then. In my opinion, Holloway would outpunch him, outwork him. He would do very much what Diaz did, but more,” he said. “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.”

Needless to say, those comments did not sit well with the former “champ champ” Conor McGregor. The brash Irish superstar fired back at Zahabi for his comments moments ago on Twitter:

“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.” – Conor McGregor



All these young mouthy clock hitters.
Stay ready.
