UFC Featherweight Cole Miller is one of the few people not buying into the Conor McGregor hype. Miller, who was supposed to fight McGregor this past weekend in Dublin until a hand injury took him out of action, doesn’t agree with Dana White’s claim that McGregor reminds him of Ronda Rousey.
In an interview with Sherdog Radio this week, here’s what Miller said about the #10 ranked Featherweight fighter:
“I thought he looked pretty solid. It’s pretty easy to look good when everything’s made for you to look good. He got to fight in his home town with all those people there supporting him. He got a full camp of preparation when his opponent didn’t. I don’t think anyone can really judge Diego. He got in there and like I said, he didn’t get his full camp. I think when these people are spoon-fed what their opinions should be they start saying the same stuff they’ve already been hearing from the UFC and the brass. I did see something where Dana said Conor reminds him of Ronda Rousey. That’s a pretty bold statement. I told my brother they’re both blond. That must be it.”
With McGregor’s win over Diego Brandao at UFC Fight Night Dublin, his next fight will be against the #6 ranked Dustin Poirier at UFC 178 on September 27th.
