‘If Conor McGregor Wins, I’ll Cut My Own D**k Off’ – Twitter Reacts To Joe Riggs
Conor McGregor knocked out Jose Aldo to capture the UFC featherweight championship at UFC 194 on Sunday night. With the win, McGregor unified the featherweight belts after winning the “interim championship” following his knockout victory over contender Chad Mendes back in July.Advertisement
Prior to the fight, there was a lot of hyperbole. Joe Riggs, the welterweight fighter popularly referred to as Diesel, may have bitten off more than he can chew. Riggs, the former WEC middleweight champion, was of the opinion that McGregor didn’t stand a chance against Brazilian Aldo, who recently celebrated ten years of staying undefeated in mixed martial arts.
In fact, Riggs felt that McGregor didn’t deserve to share the octagon with Aldo. Speaking to the Fight Network ahead of the fight, Riggs said, “The fact that the guy (Aldo) who’s considered the pound-for-pound best fighter on the planet and he’s the underdog against this guy (McGregor) who’s fucking nothing”.
“If Chad (Mendez) had had a full training camp, he would have killed him”.
Riggs went as far as promising to cut off his genitals if McGregor should defeat Aldo. “If he (McGregor) beats Aldo, I’ll cut my own d**k off and throw it away.”
McGregor knocked out Aldo in thirteen seconds with a knockout punch heard around the world.
