As you may have heard, last week McGregor was arrested in Miami after grabbing a man’s cell phone, throwing it on the ground and stomping on it.
McGregor was charged with felony strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief, but didn’t seem too concerned as after he was released he was selling the t-shirt he wore when exiting the jail.
He did admit in the caption to the photo above, “Patience in this world is a virtue I continue to work on. I love my fans dearly. Thank you all.”
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Stallone, one of McGregor’s biggest fans, says The Notorious One is at a crossroads.
Stallone said McGregor needs to tell himself, “Okay, I’ve gone through a very rough time. I’ve been somewhat publicly humiliated. I’m at a crossroad in my life … I have to overcome an incredible opponent who seems invulnerable.”
“So this is a crossroad in his life. This is probably the most important one because if he doesn’t live up to his ideal … if he can’t overcome his fear and beat this man, I think it’ll plague him for the rest of his life,” Stallone continued.
Sly does think McGregor has it in himself to come back and beat Khabib, but…
“I think [Conor] lost last time because he got resentful, he got prideful, he got arrogant … put his hands down … walked right up to that gentleman and he just got smashed in the face when he could have been defensive. There was no Plan B. Not even a Plan A minus.”
When it comes to future fights, Stallone said he wants to “see a guy that leaves everything on the table because that’s what you call a champion.”
As for what he would tell McGregor about dealing with the public, “Keep smiling. You can’t critique a smile.”
