Conor McGregor Goes After Firas Zahabi | …

Tristar Gym owner and famed MMA coach Firas Zahabi made a Q&A video on his YouTube channel where he espoused the view that, in a rematch, he expected Max Holloway to defeat Conor McGregor. In response, McGregor issued an insulting tweet wondering why Zahabi never fought professionally and demanded he keep quiet. The response from the former champion is instructive because it’s a microcosm of how all of MMA works. We are stuck in an honor society where any perceived slight is taken as a grave insult to one’s character and the argument from authority reigns supreme. Enough.
