Unless you’ve been living under a rock, by now you know that Conor McGregor is perhaps the greatest trash-talker in the game today.
Indeed, “Notorious” uses the perfect words and his charisma to his advantage, mocking his opponents and talking them down while building himself up in order to sell a fight.
But there is another point to the madness, as he gets into his opponent’s head before the fight even begins, forcing them out of their gameplans once the fight starts. And that’s why former UFC champions and current Hall of Famers, Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell, believe Conor is the best at trash talking.
“Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor was a great example. How often do you see Jose Aldo run across the ring and attack a guy that quickly,” explained Liddell during an interview on The Adam Corrola Show.
“But I think he was so mad at Conor that he actually went across the ring and he got caught,” Liddell added.
Indeed, Conor tormented Aldo throughout their world press tour, taking jabs at him at every interview, visibly upsetting the former featherweight champion. Once the fight began, Conor knocked him out in a mere 13 seconds.
That said, Ortiz feels Conor may got a little too far at times.“He takes away too far. He has crossed the line a little too much,” Ortiz said.
In the end, it’s Conor’s way of selling a fight — as well as his fighting skills — that have made him the biggest star in the game today.
