Conor McGregor: 'Chad is an idiot'

Conor McGregor is at it again.

Despite having a fight against Diego Brandao this Saturday in Dublin, Ireland, McGregor is more focused on what is happening above him.

His targets this time are featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, and number one contender, Chad Mendes.

In case you missed it, Aldo had to pull out of his UFC 176 fight with Mendes due to injury. Mendes then mentioned that Aldo was running from him.

Well, McGregor is not buying that as an explanation. In an interview with Tatame, “Notorious” said that he feels as though Aldo simply doesn’t want to fight Mendes because he has already defeated him once before.

Do not believe Aldo is fleeing, he already defeated this guy before. Chad is an idiot for thinking that! But actually do not care much about what happens between the two. Their time is coming to an end and my beginning.

Never one to lack confidence, all while diminishing the accomplishments of his fellow fighters, McGregor made it clear that he, not Aldo nor Mendes, is the best fighter at 145. McGregor even channeled his inner GSP.

Nothing they do impresses me. They do not move as I move, do not fight how I fight … Anyway, did not impress me. Say (UFC) I’m number 13 in the rankings, but there is a typo in the list, because I’m the number one,

One could never make the assumption that McGregor doesn’t believe in himself. It is that confidence that either has fans buzzing or has them wanting McGregor to be silenced. This is what makes him one of the most polarizing fighters in the UFC today.

If we’re being honest, what exactly has he accomplished? We can sit here and debate this over and over, but it’s not like it’ll matter. Let’s just say that McGregor probably doesn’t care what we think about his standing as a fighter.
