More than a few UFC fighters have been critical of Conor McGregor’s brash statements, but Ricardo Lamas has taken slamming the rising featherweight to a whole new level in a new video that’s been released.
Lamas has certainly been open about the fact that he’d love to fight McGregor, and the well rounded fighter has also argued that “Notorious” needs to fight an accomplished wrestler like himself. But, none of those comments compare to the featherweight’s portrayal of a “Conrad McGillicutty”, who is clearly spoofing McGregor himself (and it will be interesting to see if the vid prompts a backlash from Irish folks, due to some of the content).
You can watch the vid below.
Of course, the video has been posted just a couple days away from when McGregor will battle Dennis Siver at UFC FN 59. If McGregor wins, he’s expected to fight featherweight champ, Jose Aldo next.
Lamas was decisioned by Aldo last February, but since then, he’s scored wins over Hacran Dias and Dennis Bermudez. Lamas is currently ranked #3 at 145.
Sunday’s card will be hosted by the TD Garden in Boston.
