Default McGregor on UFC 229 injury: ‘I probably should have reset the match to a later date’

In hindsight, Conor McGregor thinks he probably shouldn’t have fought Khabib Nurmagomedov after suffering an injury to his foot just weeks out from their clash.

In a recent interview with motivational speaker Tony Robbins, McGregor was reminded of the injury he suffered when he was speaking about how Jose Aldo pulled out of their initial featherweight championship date in 2015 at UFC 189.

“The most significant moment of my career was when I first tasted UFC gold,” McGregor told Robbins.

“It was at UFC 189 in Las Vegas, I was supposed to face the current champion Jose Aldo, but he pulled out nine days before the bout with a broken rib; someone threw a spinning back kick on him and broke his rib. Broke his rib…it was more like a bruised rib.”

McGregor—who first revealed that he broke his foot before UFC 229 via social media last month—went on to describe how he suffered the injury by attempting to land a front kick on an oncoming wrestler.

“Two and half weeks out from my last fight I threw a front kick at a shooting Moldovan wrestler—a shooting wrestler is a guy that’s shooting in on your legs—and when he shot and I threw the front kick…I threw it at his belly and my two toes—my baby toe and the toe next to it—bent back like this and stuck in that position,” he explained.

“My doctor, who’s here with me now, had to come into the cage, stretch it and break it back into place. My foot swelled like a balloon, that was two and a half weeks out from my last fight.”

The former two-weight champion highlighted that he dynamic skillset can be a blessing and curse because even without his foot, he believed he could beat Nurmagomedov, yet given the severity of the injury, he probably should not have fought.

“That’s one of the things I’m blessed with, I have many shots in my arsenal, I have many moves—I can box, I can kick—I have many different skills in my arsenal, but that’s a blessing and a curse,” he said.


“It’s blessing for obvious reasons, I can throw many moves, I can stifle an opponent. A curse because when I face a serious injury where I probably should have just reset the match to a later date, my hunger and my knowledge that I just need one shot; I have one limb gone, but I have another seven limbs...the art of eight limbs, this is, so I can utilize other strikes in my arsenal.”

“The Notorious” went on to claim that the injury led to further problems with his weight cut and his workouts before dismissing his own points as “nonsensical excuses”.

“The injury itself led me to half my workload. I couldn’t road run anymore, my weight was too high. So when you’re cutting weight and you can’t get your weight down because your weight is too high because of injuries and what not, I have a more intense weight cut. I was severely dehydrated, I didn’t sleep for 48 hours before the weight cut,” he said.

“These are all nonsensical excuses that I don’t give a ***** about, I don’t give a *****. That’s why I walked in there hands down—ding ding ding—and walked forward to him and he went running around the cage.”

He got whooped. He got beat so bad he was crying "It's just business!" while Khabib was ground-and-pounding him and telling him to "talk now".

He's just trying to angle a rematch and another big payday he doesn't deserve.

There's ALWAYS reasons that played into you losing besides being 2nd best that night. There's ALWAYS reasons you coulda used after a W on why you lost if you hadn't have gotten the W.

Injuries are a part of the fight game. You win at less then 100%, you lose at less then 100%. People talk about injuries AFTER fights win or lose quite often, but nobody seems to hear it unless its after an L. And fighters themselves seem to double down on the importance of the injury after an L although I suppose there is more reason to excuse an L than to brag on a W by speaking about how hurt you were while still winning.

Guys a bull****ter. I'm sure he stated before he doesn't run and he just swims or bikes for cardio. He stopped running after his ACL surgery like 6 years ago. His cardio has been pretty poor ever since.
