Eddie Alvarez “McGregor has fought a bunch of chumps”


The debut of the UFC in New York City on November 12 is just around the corner. On Thursday, McGregor and Alvarez took a conference call with the media to talk about their upcoming bout. So as one could expect, the conversation was a verbal war. Eddie Alvarez expressed how little respect he has for McGregor’s fighting resume:

“He’s fought a bunch of chumps. Styles make matchups. When you pick the style you wanna fight, you can knock everyone out. I can go to the supermarket right now and punch a guy, knock them out and look like a superhero. But when you fight the best guys in the world, the true best guys in the world, it’s going to be tough. So the fight’s going to be tough.”

Alvarez on McGregor’s past fights:

“I know what I’m capable of and I can get it done in any manner. He has good striking. His defence is terrible, might be the worst in the division. If he even thinks about wrestling I may just knock him the f**k out before that. But you guys are in for a treat.”

“I’ve fought all over the world, I’ve fought the best guys in the world. But it was never a job for me, it was an opportunity. Because for me it is a dream come true to get the UFC title, get to the PPV, and get to the biggest event ever at MSG. I think regardless of what they say to the media, he and his camp know what I possess and what I can do. So I don’t need to say much. All I needed was him to sign the paper. Now with the paper’s signed, and the deal done, I’m ready to execute on November 12.”
