Conor McGregor Ripped Firas Zahabi For Saying Max Holloway Would Beat Him

Conor McGregor Fired Back At “Twerp” Firas Zahabi For Favoring Max Holloway In A Rematch!

Conor McGregor fought Max Holloway in 2013, and earned a unanimous decision win in a one-sided blowout! But yesterday, the Tristar Gym head coach Firas Zahabi said Max Holloway would beat McGregor if the two meet again. The famous coach believes Max owns better stamina and grappling game. (h/t

“If I had to pick Max Holloway vs. McGregor today, I would pick Max Holloway,” Zahabi said.

“There’ll be a lot of striking of course, but there’s going to be a lot of clinching. I think that early in the striking McGregor wins, but later, it shifts all the way to Holloway,” the Tristar gym head coach explained. “He’s got better conditioning, better durability. The grappling is gonna be on Holloway’s side — the clinch work, the knees, the elbows, the tie ups. I think Holloway will start outworking and will outpace him to the point where McGregor is going to slow down.

“I like McGregor early, round one or round two, but after that, three, four, five, I think that’s going to belong to Holloway,” he said. “Even one of the first two rounds could belong to Holloway. I really think Holloway now is in his prime, and it’s going to be very very difficult to beat him.”

It looks like Conor McGregor didn’t take Firas Zahabi theory too kindly. He fired back on his Twitter account.

Hey firaz. Young man afraid to get in and fight, himself. Stop talking about me like you know me, you twerp.

You are what age? Why are not in there yourself? Are you not up to it?

You rent dorms and hit a clock for a living.

Shut your pie, kid.

“The Notorious” followed up with this.

All these young mouthy clock hitters.

Stay ready.

According to MMA History Today, Firas Zahabi usually favors McGregor’s opponents.

UFC Lightweight fighter Al Iaquinta appeared in the comments, with a special demand for Conor McGregor. Of course, “The Notorious” immediately fulfilled his wish.

What do you think, is there a chance for Max Holloway Vs Conor McGregor 2? Do you support Zahabi’s opinion or not?
