McGregor says he respects CM Punk, despite his loss in UFC 203 to Mickey Gall.
Fair play to him, ‘cos he got in there and fought. And not a lot of people do. Not a lot of people have the balls to make that walk. He got his ass whooped. God bless. He got his ass whooped. Those WWE guy’s are pussies, I told yous all, but he isn’t. He got in and fought. So fair play to him. Respect.
On a UFC 203 media conference call CM Punk says that, while he doesn’t care what McGregor said, it hurt other WWE wrestler’s feelings.
A lot of feelings were hurt, though, I can tell you that much, which I thought was a little strange. You’ve gotta leave the emotion out of it. These guys still don’t know…It’s a hard thing to comment on, because the amount of people who responded to him made me feel like they were told to respond to him. [McGregor is] the biggest name in sports at the moment. There’s always grey areas when you involve that whole scene and you’re wondering, is this a work, is this not a work?
