NBA star LeBron James has been known to use many quotes from Conor McGregor in the past through his social media accounts. McGregor suffered an upset loss to Nate Diaz on Saturday night. The Irishman is still the Featherweight champion despite the loss. James sent some encouraging words to McGregor on Monday.
“He will be the champion for the rest of his life,” James said on Monday. “It will always be part of his resume. . . he’s built that throughout his career and he will continue to do that as I’ve seen some of his quotes after the fight.”
In fact McGregor did went on social media after his loss to Diaz to offer his thoughts.
I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed. I will never apologize for taking a shot. Shit happens. I'll take this loss like a man. I will not shy away from it. I will not change who I am. If another champion goes up 2 weights let me know. If your tired of me talking money, take a nap. I'll still be here when you wake up with the highest PPV and the gate. Still talking multi 7's. Thank you to the true support and fuck the hate that came out of the woodwork. I love it all. Its still steak for breakfast. I've been here many times in my life in some form or another. I'll eat it all and come back stronger. Aldo you are a pussy. Dos anjos you are a pussy. When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter. To the fans! Never ever shy away from challenges. Never run from adversity. Face yourself head on. Nate I will see you again.
Furthermore, LeBron James has suffered heartbreaking defeats like McGregor did on Saturday losing in the NBA Finals four times.
“Mystic Mac” has indicated that he wants to defend his 145-pound belt next and will most likely face either Jose Aldo or Frankie Edgar.
