Firas Zahabi reacts to the latest insults thrown his way by former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor.

Zahabi gave his thoughts about a potential rematch between McGregor and UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway. This led to Zahabi picking Holloway to beat the former champion. Obviously, that didn’t sit well with McGregor as he fired some shots at the coach through social media.

The coach had another Ask Me Anything session where he responded to McGregor once he stated that he has studied his game a ton. Thus, he thinks that he’s the one of the best fighters out there.

“There was nothing personal,” Zahabi said (H/T to Bloody Elbow). “The reason why I didn’t respond to McGregor (on twitter) is he got personal, and I don’t do that. I kind of glanced over, then I realized it was about me, and realized he’s insulting me,” he said. “I thought to myself, ‘hey the double champ watches my podcast! That’s amazing! How great is that? I’m gonna give Conor McGregor a shoutout on my podcast.’

“Then somebody pointed out to me, ‘no, it was regards to an article that came out… about me picking Max Holloway over Conor McGregor’ That’s why Conor got upset and went to twitter. So I thought to myself, ‘Oh, he doesn’t listen to my podcast. Too bad.’

Avoiding Issues

Zahabi continued by stating that if McGregor had listened to what he said rather than read transcripts then things might have been different.

“But then I realized, ‘hey, he talked about the dorms. That article doesn’t talk about the dorms!’” he continued. “If he knows about the dorms, he’s listened to this podcast. So I want to give a shoutout to Conor. Thank you for supporting this channel. I really appreciate you listening to this, and I want to let you know it was nothing personal.”

Conor McGregor fires back Tristar Gym coach Firas Zahabi after some of the comments he made during an ‘Ask me Anything’ session. It all started when Zahabi gave his thoughts about a potential rematch between McGregor and UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway.

McGregor beat Holloway back in 2013. However, since then, Holloway has transformed into the fighter he is today by getting better. Since then Holloway has gone on an impressive 13 fight win streak.

Zahbi ended up picking Holloway to beat the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion in a potential second fight. Well, that didn’t sit well with McGregor, who responded with a series of tweets.

Hey firaz. Young man afraid to get in and fight, himself. Stop talking about me like you know me, you twerp. You are what age? Why are not in there yourself? Are you not up to it? You rent dorms and hit a clock for a living. Shut your pie, kid.”

He also fired a tweet that he has since deleted that read, “All these young mouthy clock hitters. Stay ready.”

One of the more intriguing rematches in the UFC right now is one between Max Holloway and Conor McGregor.

“The Notorious” defeated the Hawaiian via unanimous decision back in 2013. Eventually, McGregor would go on to become the biggest star mixed martial arts (MMA) has ever seen. Also, Holloway hasn’t lost a fight since being defeated by the Irishman and is now the 145-pound champion. Now that both men have risen to elite status in the UFC, fans would love to see the two rematch after they’ve evolved.

If that were to happen, MMA coach Firas Zahabi is picking “Blessed” in the rematch. Zahabi believes Holloway would “outwork” and “outpunch” McGregor if they fought again (via Bloody Elbow):

“If I had to pick Max Holloway vs. McGregor today, I would pick Max Holloway,” Zahabi said. “I think Holloway has grown leaps and bounds since then. In my opinion, Holloway would out-punch him, outwork him.

“He would do very much what Diaz did [to Conor McGregor], but more,” he said. “I think McGregor got away with a lot of stuff, like the leg kicks against Diaz, but I don’t think he’ll have that against Holloway.”

McGregor has now lost twice inside the UFC, both by way of submission. Because of that, Zahabi believes the blueprint the beating one of the sporting world’s biggest stars is more clear:

“Holloway has the same type of output as Diaz, the same kind of chin as Diaz,” he said. “He’s more athletic than Diaz, he has more variety in his attacks, he has more kicking, kneeing and elbowing, and his chin is just phenomenal.

“So I really think he would take it in the later rounds. I think the blueprint for beating McGregor is more well understood by the roster.”
