LeBron James Says Conor McGregor Is Still A Champion

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.

 

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.
