Fabricio Werdum is not a fan of Conor McGregor’s behavior outside the Octagon, and he was happy to see the Irishman tap to Nate Diaz at UFC 196.
Headlining UFC’s mega event on May 14 in Curitiba, Brazil, “Vai Cavalo” spoke with MMAFighting.com about his controversial Instagram posts attacking “The Notorious” before and after his loss to Diaz on March 5, calling the UFC featherweight champion a prostitute.
“Conor McGregor started well with his marketing, he talks a lot and is a great fighter, we can’t deny that, but I think he crossed the line. It’s too much now,” Werdum said. “He said he will fight anyone, but that’s not how things work in our world. Fighters have a code, a law, and you have to respect everybody. He lost this respect, talked about me at the MMA Awards, and he talked sh*t at the wrong person. I won’t stay quiet and just listen.
“Fighters don’t like Conor McGregor,” he continued. “Everybody likes watching him fight because he does a good marketing, but I won’t change who I am because of money. Everybody likes money, but there’s a limit. Money isn’t everything. He sold his soul – and I’m saying soul so I don’t say other things [laughs]. I don’t think that’s cool. He sold his soul. It was about time someone would shut him up.”
McGregor criticized Werdum for pulling out of the UFC clash with Stipe Miocic due to injury during his MMA Awards acceptance speech earlier this year, and the Brazilian immediately fired back with an Instagram post.
