White: McGregor better at mental game than Muhammad Ali, or Nurmagomedov
“It was dark, man," said White after Thursday’s UFC 229 press conference. "It was the darkest press conference I’ve ever been a part of. But Conor McGregor is the master of mental warfare. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think he’s better than any body, even Muhammad Ali. You don’t ever want to say anybody’s better than Ali, but I think when it comes to mental war game in this sport, or any other sport, Conor McGregor is the best ever. ... Here’s the thing about McGregor, too. He’s so good at it, he studies. He studies every little thing. He talks to people. He finds out stories inside the guy’s camp. Look at the whole thing that he did on the Ultimate Fighter with Urijah Faber, with T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt and all those guys. At one point he had Cody Garbrandt trying to fight him. He is the master. He is the best ever to do it. Nobody does it better than Conor does.” H/T BE
