Conor McGregor Responds To Criticism By Stephen A Smith

Conor McGregor Responds To Criticism By Stephen A Smith

Conor McGregor has responded to ESPN commentator Stephen A Smith after the tv personality said he didn't show enough against Donald Cerrone to worry Khabib Nurmagomedov or Jorge Masvidal.

At UFC 246 it took McGregor just 40 seconds of his comeback to pick up the first round stoppage win against Cerrone, with a potential fight with Masvidal in his future.

After the fight Smith wasn't happy with Cowboy's performance, saying, "Here's the deal: 15 seconds in, 'Cowboy' Cerrone was done. He got hit with those shoulders in the clinch, and he was done. It look like he gave up. It was just an atrocious performance on his part."

However Joe Rogan wasn't happy with the analysis and, speaking on his MMA Podcast discussed Smith saying, "With fighting, you have to know it, or no one's going to respect you," he said. "If you don't know what you're talking about and you're talking about it in front of millions of people, man that's a bad look for everybody. It's a bad look for ESPN, it's a bad look for him, it's a bad look for the sport. It's like... there's other people that can do this."

Smith took to Twitter to hit back at Rogan saying, "Mad respect to Joe Rogan. Nothing but respect for the man and the tremendous work that he has done and will continue to do throughout the years and for years to come. But you're wrong on this one my man."

Finally McGregor chimed himself on Twitter to say that Smith was right about him not having the chance to show that he was ready to take on Masvidal, or have a rematch with Khabib, but refuted the idea Cerrone didn't try.
