If the old adage about reaping what you sow is true, than featherweight champ Conor McGregor is certainly reaping a ton of hate for all the discontent he sowed with his mouth.
Since losing spectacularly to Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on Saturday night, a multitude of fighters have piled on the Irishman – and now you can add lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos to that list.
As per MMAFighting:
“This guy, I think, everything he talked, he paid in the Octagon,” dos Anjos said. “He just got exposed, and everything he talked, when the Octagon locked, everybody saw the truth. I think everybody saw the truth last Saturday and he got submitted. Even Holly Holm, she went to sleep without tapping. He tapped. Bro, how are you going to tap on the neck, on the choke? Go to sleep, man. Be a man. Holly Holm showed more heart than him.
Remember: Dos Anjos and McGregor were supposed to clash until the Brazilian bowed out due to injury. You have to think Dos Anjos is thinking about all the money that went into Diaz’s bank account and how it could’ve been his.
