Former UFC two-division champion Henry Cejudo has criticized Conor McGregor for his recent antics, recommending him join “Alcoholics Anonymous.”
McGregor was last in action at UFC 264 in July. In what was his second Octagon encounter with Dustin Poirier this year, the Irishman left the arena without once again the desired outcome.
After being knocked out for the first time at UFC 257, all eyes were on McGregor and the way he had bounced back inside T-Mobile Arena. After being outplayed for most of the first round, the main event shock ended after the Dubliner suffered a horrific broken leg.
Since his second loss of the year, McGregor has remained in the headlines for a multitude of reasons. From her usual controversial tweets to an extremely inaccurate first pitch at a baseball game, the “Notorious” megastar has no trouble staying relevant. After drawing the ire of many in the MMA community, Cejudo is the latest to expand on McGregor.
Speaking during a recent episode of his podcast with The Schmo, “Triple C” touched on some of McGregor’s recent actions. Namely, Cejudo slammed the Irishman’s altercation with Machine Gun Kelly at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, which saw him throw a drink at the multi-platinum artist while on the red carpet. with her partner Megan Fox.
The former king of bantamweight and flyweight also suggested that McGregor, who co-founded successful brand Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey, should see help with an apparent alcohol problem.
“There’s no one else cringeing right now or thirstier than Conor the McTapper McGregor. Did you see him throw on the first pitch? I mean, 50 Cent would laugh at the pitch he threw at the Cubs game. I mean this guy is trying to fight Megan Fox for screaming out loud. He’s here calling Alexander Volkanovski, [saying] he wants to fight it. I mean, he’s just crazy. He really should be rehab, and I’m not talking about his damn ankle. I’m talking about Alcoholics Anonymous. Conor McGregor, pull yourself together. (h / t Sportskeeda)
While Cejudo offered McGregor to call up the current UFC featherweight champion, the former Olympian also set the stage for a clash with Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski.
Cejudo, who announced his retirement from MMA after his successful bantamweight defense against Dominick Cruz last May, has been teasing a return to the UFC since hanging up his gloves.
Volkanovsky recently left the door open to a fight against the 34-year-old. He suggested that if that were to happen, now is the most likely time. Given his desire to stay active and the fact that the likely fight between Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez won’t take place until November, the Aussie may have to look outside the current 145-pound division for his next appearance. .
In addition to a potential clash with Cejudo, “The Great” also said he was ready to fight at lightweight while waiting for his next featherweight challenger.
