There are no two bigger stars in MMA than UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor and former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.
McGregor was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated and when he was asked about the return of Rousey at UFC 207, he offered the former champion a little advice.
“I’d tell her to go shut them all up now. Shut them all up. Go and stake your claim again, I wish Ronda nothing but the best, it’s good to see her back,” McGregor said. “Some people take defeat and losses a certain way. You see how some fighters take losses. I’m happy she is ready to go again and I wish her well. Go and shut these people up now. Go and get what you began back. I’m excited to see how it unfolds.”
Rousey will be challenging Amanda Nunes for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title at UFC 207, this will be her first fight since losing the title nearly a year ago to Holly Holm at UFC 193.
As for McGregor, he will be headlining the biggest UFC event of all time as he faces UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez for the gold at UFC 205, which will be taking place on Saturday, November 12th from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.
