Matt Serra to Conor McGregor: “Dude, You’re an Attention Whore”

Conor McGregor has been taking a lot of heat for how he acted at Bellator 187, and Matt Serra has made it extremely, crystal clear, he isn’t a fan of how the star handled himself either.

McGregor made headlines for several days, after he jumped into the cage at the Dublin event to congratulate his teammate, and chaos ensued. Not only did McGregor need to be restrained by officials, but additional footage surfaced of him slapping at a security guard.

Well, since then, McGregor has apologized for his actions (although, the Irish fighter also criticized referee Marc Goddard in his statement). But, during a recent episode of UFC Unfiltered, Serra let loose on the lightweight champ. Here is some of what the charismatic, former welterweight champion had to say about McGregor (quotes via MMA Mania):

“The point is this: He makes it about himself,” Serra said. “He doesn’t make it about his friends. He’s not doing that to support his friends … Dude – you’re an attention whore. That’s not respectful to your fighter. And what about him jumping on the cage and smacking the official?

“If I did that, if anybody did that, they’d be called a f*cking asshole. How does this guy get a pass? … He’s acting like a f*cking asshole.”

“I just think it’s f*cking silly that people are like, ‘Ahh, well, that’s Conor, he’s bigger than life!’ He’s allowed to smack somebody? Man, f*ck that dude. I don’t give a f*ck.”

Now, whether you agree with Serra here or not, and McGregor boosters almost certainly don’t, it is nice to see that the retired fighter is speaking his mind here. After all, “UFC Unfiltered” is a UFC production, and some employees might have reservations about blasting the company’s biggest star.

It remains to be seen if McGregor faces any disciplinary action from regulatory bodies or the UFC. So far, the latter hasn’t announced anything official in this respect. There’s also a chance that McGregor could face some type of legal action as well.

McGregor hasn’t fought for the UFC now since November, 2016, when he stopped Eddie Alvarez to claim the 155 belt.
