‘Trash talking’ Conor McGregor is back and he means business

Conor McGregor has signalled with his latest Instagram post that he plans on going back to his old ways after becoming nice and respectful in the build up to recent fights.

It seems as though McGregor has decided to abandon his respectful approach as it didn’t work for him at UFC 257 as he lost to a second round TKO versus Dustin Poirier. He has now vowed “No more mr. nice guy” in his latest Instagram post and fans are ecstatic.

Fans are loving the thought of having trash talking Conor McGregor back as he was the one who dominated the world of MMA. He is now preparing for a possible trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier so maybe this change if mindset is what Conor feels he needs to defeat Poirier a second time.

This has come just days after former UFC fighter and retired MMA star Ben Askren was speaking on the Real Quick with Mike Swick podcast which has been quoted by Sportskeeda.

Ben Askren was speaking about how

“Conor without the sh*t talk is a lot less effective. I mean if you just look at just the first Poirier fight, in the first fight, he (Conor McGregor) got him really upset, right? And Poirier got overextended; tried to fight too hard, and boom, clips him, puts him down. Jose Aldo; gets him mad, Aldo rushes in, boom, puts him down. And now, in these last couple of fights, we’ve seen like this nicer, happy, more mature (McGregor) whatever you want to call it. He’s not the same Conor we saw five years ago. And there’s other things that are different as well. But I think Conor without the sh*t talk is a less effective Conor.”

Conor isn’t the same fighter he was five years ago, he has changed and evolved. Do you prefer the more respectful humble Conor McGregor right now or is Ben Askren right, was ‘sh*t talking’ Conor McGregor better and more effective?
