At the An Evening With… event in Manchester, McGregor criticises the MMAAA fighter’s union and St-Pierre’s role.
I’m watching this union thing, it like a press conference, and I’m like, what the fuck is going on here? They’re standing up, they’re all wearing the same t-shirt. They’re saying, ‘Conor, please. Conor, please, you know what’s right. Help us out, Conor.’ And Georges is saying, ‘Conor’s a good person. I know he gets paid well, but he doesn’t get paid enough.’ And I’m like — what the fuck are you talking about? The only reason you [St-Pierre] are standing in the middle of that union is because you couldn’t get the deal you want. You’re the fakest of everyone up there…I just thought it was the biggest, fakest load of shit I’ve ever seen in my life. So, I don’t know. I wish everyone well, but you need to focus on yourself. You need to stop putting your hand out. Everyone’s hands are out, everyone wants things for free. You’ve got to put in the work, you’ve got to grind, you’ve got to go through the struggle, and you’ve got to get it.
