UFC star Conor MccGregor is apparently not happy boxers are mocking his unorthodox warm-up technique on social media. On Wednesday, McGregor spoke to the media on a conference call and opened up about feeling discarded and disrespected by boxers before his upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather.

“It’s like I’ve been discarded, and it’s like I’m not welcome here,” McGregor told reporters on today’s media conference call. “It’s certainly motivating, the disrespect and the disregard for my skill set. I look at people sometimes, and their mind is closed. They’ve got such a closed mind on how things can be done. It’s a set way and no other way.
“It’s like when we went across the waters to another land, or when we went into space. You’ve got to have an open mind and realize there are other ways, and there’s a time and a place for every single movement.”
“I’ve seen some videos,” McGregor said. “It is what it is. It’s light-hearted. I don’t take it personal. If anything I see stiffness in every single one of them.”
Conor’s comments comes days after boxers Terence Crawford, David Haye, and others mocked the UFC champion for his bizarre warm-up technique.
Kind of hard to take McGregor serious after that noodle arm workout.
