Top UFC Coach Reckons Conor McGregor ‘Backed it in’ When the Going Got Tough

Firas Zahabi has trained some big names in the world of UFC including Georges St-Pierre and Rory MacDonald and he questions did the Irish man Conor McGregor give up when the going got tough?

“In the second round, when McGregor was getting hit along the fence. I found it strange that he wasn’t — it seemed like he had already gave up on the fight,” Zahabi said.

“Before he hit the canvas, I felt like he had given up on the fight, because things were getting tough.

“The fight was getting tough. His left hand didn’t work, and he’s not used to that. He’s not used to hitting guys with the big left, and them keep fighting.”

“McGregor, in the second round, dropped his best card. He landed that perfect left hand, the one he’s relied on his entire career. But for one reason or another, it didn’t work,”
