UFC star Colby Covington recently spoke on MMA Fighting.com’s What The Heck, where he chose Dustin Poirier to be the winner of the upcoming fight between himself and Conor McGregor.
“Yeah, he’ll probably beat Conor again. But, I mean, what is that saying?” Covington said.
“You’re beating a guy that has no motivation left in the sport. And I love Conor. He’s had a great career, done great things in the sport, but your time’s up, too.
“It’s obvious that you’re not training every day, it’s obvious you’re not working on your craft, it’s obvious you’re working on other business deals to line your pockets and pad your bank account.
“It’s just not the same hungry Conor from a couple of years ago. It’s a different Conor towards the end of his journey and it’s not saying much to beat him anymore.”
