“UFC I can’t stand. That to me is like a bar fight,” he said.
“I know the practitioners are like, ‘no, you’re wrong—the months of training we do …’ Why don’t you just grab a beer bottle and hit the other guy over the head?
“That’s the next stage of the UFC. I hate it.
“That little leprechaun Conor McGregor, he gives Ireland a bad name.
“I know he’s fit, and I admire him for that. But I can’t take it.”
