Diego Brandao Says Conor McGregor's Not The Best In The World
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.04.2014



In an interview with MMA Fighting, Diego Brandao said that Conor McGregor's claims of being the best in the world are "bullshit". Here are the highlights:

On his fight with McGregor: "It's going to be a really interesting fight. He likes to fight standing and so do I, so we're going at it. It's going to be a great show for the UFC fans. I'm going to Ireland to beat him. I will do my job in there. If the win comes in the first round or the last round it's okay, what really matters is that it comes. I was really happy when my manager Ivan Jatoba called me saying that the UFC wanted me in a main event against Conor McGregor. I've been through some hard moments last year, and at the beginning of this year, and I have to thank God, Sean Shelby, Dana White and Joe Silva for believing in me and giving me this main event."

On if ring rust will have an effect on him: "Maybe it does because training is different from fighting, but it's a main event and I can't even think about it. We need to stay focused to do a great fight for the fans. I want to see Dana White smiling right next to the Octagon and congratulating me after the fight, saying that he's proud of my performance."

On McGregor ripping other fighters: "It's part of the promotion," he said. "The more you sell and get attention to your fight the better. We had our issues in the past, but I'm not in the mood to talk at all. If he wants to talk, I won't care. I know that deep in there he respects me. I felt it when we met. I will answer him inside the Octagon. When the door closes, words won't win the fight. Saying that he's the best in the world is bulls--t. Obviously, he's not. He knows that he's not, and he has a lot to prove to be a top 10 in the UFC. Talking trash only makes me more motivated to train for the fight. While he's talking, I'm training."
