Nate Diaz’s Boxing Coach Explains How He Knows Conor McGregor Is On Steroids

It looks like Nate Diaz isn’t the only one who thinks Conor McGregor is on steroids.

Richard Perez, Diaz’s boxing coach, spoke with Submission Radio and shared his belief that McGregor is on the juice.

“Oh I sure do believe that, heck yeah. Some guys, they get busted – and to be honest with you, I know McGregor has got to be on some kind of steroids, he’s pretty big. And then all of a sudden [he’s] jumping to 170? Yeah there’s no way, cause I mean, he was supposed to be fighting at 155. So if you think about it, he was focusing on training at 155. He only had two weeks to go. And all of a sudden he’s gonna jump to 170? So no, there’s something going on. But still, I mean, we’re still gonna fight and that’s all there is to it.”

Perez didn’t make blind accusations, however, as he happily explained his thouoght process.

“Well, all I know is that he was supposed to fight at 155, and for some reason I don’t think he would have made the weight, because he was trying to go to 165 and then he went to 170. So think about it. If you see that, you would think he had two more weeks to go, he would be close to 155 and stay on that, you know, or go to 160. But he didn’t, he jumped to 170. So that’s kinda shady right there.”
