Irishman Conor McGregor has spoken about his loss last night to Russian Khabib for the first time since it happened. He’s kept it short and honest.
McGregor was always going to be up against it due to the ground game ability of Khabib coupled with the fact he hadn’t fought in MMA in over two years.
His last appearance in a professional fighting sport was in boxing a year ago to Floyd Mayweather.
A fight where he surprised most with his skill and ability to win early rounds, but a bout where his fatigue ultimately waned and one that many believe Mayweather carried him in until the time of stoppage.
McGregor’s cardio and stamina proved to be an issue again for him last night in the UFC but he’s been honest about things today on Twitter:
Good knock. Looking forward to the rematch.

Indeed if a rematch does happen, expect it to do crazy numbers following the events that preceded last night’s fight in Vegas.
Events that saw bare knuckle fists fly between teams in the cage and cage side that would probably make a rematch one of the biggest pay per view events of all time.
