Al Iaquinta has some thoughts about Conor McGregor and the current “money fight” trend among fighters today.
He said, “I don’t see him ever getting that title shot again, unless it’s just a money thing,” Iaquinta said.
“It’s a shame that he might get fights just because of the purse that he brings. Because he’s totally non-deserving of anything near a title shot. I don’t think he ever was.”
Iaquinta says McGregor will need to get through him first if he wants a rematch with the champion.
“Conor, he was talking about an immediate rematch, but I think he’s gotta fight somebody. And who else would he fight besides me?
“We have a common opponent in Khabib. I went to distance on a day’s notice. He had all the time in the world to prepare and he tapped out?”
