“I wouldn’t mind fighting Conor. 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 doesn’t have, 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.'” He continued to pour salt in the wound, adding, “If his body is in danger, he gives up.”
The former WEC champ was referencing McGregor’s fights (and losses by submission) against Artemij Sitenkov and Joseph Duffy from many years back when Conor was a young pup.
Faber was not completely insulting about Conor, and discussed his interest in fighting him, although he saw it ending in his favor. “I think that would be a good fight,” Faber commented. “He’s massive compared to me, very athletic. But, the good thing is, he does give up, and I don’t.”
Urijah Faber will meet Frankie Edgar in a mega-fight on May 16 at UFC Fight Night in Manila, so no better time than to place a bet on this match. Currently on Paddy Power, Edgar is at 2/7 while Faber comes in at 5/2, so take a look and see if it is worth cashing in on.
