McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) suffered a damaged leg in a first-round TKO loss to Dustin Poirier of their trilogy bout this previous Saturday and was irate by the unlucky finish. A pissed off McGregor ramped up his pre-fight antics by making death threats at Poirier and his wife within the instant aftermath and likewise threatening to return after each of them in a series of tweets he has since deleted. Felder thinks McGregor’s actions have been heinous and that he was fortunate Poirier restrained himself contemplating the injured state he was in.
“You’re on the bottom together with your leg damaged in half on the backside, threatening to kill someone to a person who has simply dominated you twice in a row now,” Felder stated within the newest episode of episode of “UFC Round-Up.” “He might stroll up and soccer kick you within the mouth and knock all of your tooth out and depart you for useless on that canvas. You’re the one who’s in place to get killed, Conor, in that spot.”
He continued, “About Dustin, the factor that I liked is that this man might have went over there and tried to assault Conor who’s on the bottom with a damaged leg. Not that safety would have let that occur, however the best way that he’s permitting him to say that and simply biting his tongue and holding his head excessive, I imply, so many excessive fives to Dustin Poirier for the best way he dealt with that state of affairs. This sport is violent, I get that. We’re purported to beat the crap out of one another, knock one another out. However on the finish of the day, it’s not about homicide. It’s not about your loved ones. Go away these issues out of your mouth, or get the hell out of the octagon, I don’t ever need to see you once more.”
Felder, who lately announced his retirement from MMA, says McGregor’s trash discuss has far transcended the same old pre-fight promotion and identical to it irked Poirier, homicide isn’t any joking matter.
“It’s not a avenue combat. It’s not life and demise actually,” Felder stated. “Clearly in boxing and MMA, there’s accidents that may trigger folks to actually die. So to speak about that stuff is simply disgusting and we’ve talked about that one million occasions. What he stated was incorrect.”
