UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor’s ‘International Fighter of the Year’ acceptance speech at the Eighth Annual Fighters Only World MMA Awards certainly didn’t pull any punches.
“The who’s who of MMA I’m sure is there in their badly fitted suits, having a penny in their pocket. I heard Nate Diaz couldn’t even afford to fly over to Las Vegas for the ceremony. Frankie Edgar… I heard he’s dressed like a little Sheikh servant or something struggling to make a few quid. Hard work pays so take notes, Stop holding bitterness deep in your bum soul. Stuck on 20,000 to show and 20,000 to fight. I wipe my ass with that money. I tip your wage in a year.”
