Fabricio Werdum: Conor McGregor Is A Whore For Money

Conor and Werdum

Reigning UFC featherweight champion the “Notorious” Conor McGregor has established himself as one of the most outspoken trash talkers in promotional history, a characteristic that has led McGregor to obtain his fair share of rivals.

In fact, the Irishman has even strung up some bad blood with heavyweight kingpin Fabricio Werdum.

McGregor infamously called Werdum out at the MMA Awards earlier this year, something the Brazilian champion obviously didn’t take lightly too.

Recently speaking on the Irishman with MMAFighting.com, “Vai Cavalo” admitted that McGregor has done well with marketing himself, but he also claimed that the “Notorious” one has become too invested with money, losing respect in the process:

“”Conor McGregor started well with his marketing, he talks a lot and is a great fighter, we can’t deny that, but I think he crossed the line. It’s too much now,” Werdum said. “He said he will fight anyone, but that’s not how things work in our world. Fighters have a code, a law, and you have to respect everybody. He lost this respect, talked about me at the MMA Awards, and he talked sh*t at the wrong person. I won’t stay quiet and just listen.

“Fighters don’t like Conor McGregor,” he continued. “Everybody likes watching him fight because he does a good marketing, but I won’t change who I am because of money. Everybody likes money, but there’s a limit. Money isn’t everything. He sold his soul – and I’m saying soul so I don’t say other things [laughs]. I don’t think that’s cool. He sold his soul. It was about time someone would shut him up.”

Werdum also touched on his previous Instagram post, a slightly controversial picture in which he used to respond to McGregor’s speech.

“Vai Cavalo” claims that the picture was displaying the “Notorious” one as a ‘prostitute’ for money, a post that Werdum does not regret putting out in the least bit:

“Not a bit. I would do it again,” Werdum said. “If he talks something about me, I will do it again. If he says something in a press conference and I’m there, I would get (UFC president) Dana (White) out of the way [laughs]. You can’t let him be that cocky. You have to be crazier than him sometimes so he stops. I posted a photo putting my hand in his a** to show that he’s a prostitute. He does anything for money. Money is important, of course, but that’s not everything in your life. That’s what I was trying to say.”
