Urijah Faber On Conor McGregor: “He Gives Up If He’s In Danger”

UFC contender Urijah Faber recently had some strong words for the next UFC Featherweight title challenger, “The Notorious” Conor McGregor.

Faber was recently interviewed by FOX Sports and claimed that McGregor bails when the going gets hard.

“I wouldn’t mind fighting Conor,” said Faber. “I’ll tell you what — he’s got something that a lot of guys don’t have. Something a guy like me doesn’t have, a guy like Chad Mendes doesn’t have, a guy like Frankie Edgar has, and that’s the instincts and willingness to give up when he’s about to get knee barred. I wouldn’t give up. Come on … His knee was in danger of having some pain inflicted on it and he was like, ‘I’m out.'”

Faber continued, “If his body is in danger, he gives up. Can you teach that? Can you take that away? I don’t think so. That’s an instinct. He will give up.”

“I think that would be a good fight,” said Faber. “He’s massive compared to me, very athletic. But, the good thing is, he does give up, and I don’t.”
