Morning Report: Chael Sonnen calls Conor McGregor ‘a rich freak,’ McGregor replies

In the conversation of the best trash talkers and self-promoters in UFC history, Conor McGregor and Chael Sonnen stand above all others for the interest they may draw into their wars. And now the two are feuding with each other.

This past weekend, one of McGregor’s old (and perhaps future) enemies, Max Holloway, title UFC Vegas 42, won a unanimous decision on Yair Rodriguez. But before the fight started, McGregor posted a video of me pacing around in front of the TV while watching the announcement before the game. The video has some fans talking about a possible rematch between the two former featherweight champions, a major rematch Holloway secretly calledr, but it also depicts the fury of Sonnen who tore apart McGregor’s pose on his own ESPN+ show.

“Conor is on the verge of becoming a bit of an eccentric, a little rich,” says Sonnen. “It was the last thing I wanted for him but if you mark your own gimmick this much, he posts things and then he deletes them – I have to try to troll 100 percent. As someone who used to troll myself, I get that. If there’s a UFC you don’t go to and you don’t throw a punch and you can win the headlines on ESPN, you’re doing something good, but to be fair, Conor wouldn’t be walking into it with Max than he’s going to walk in there with the guy last week, the week before that, or whoever he’s hating off next week. He has to heal himself.

“There was talk about Dustin Poirier, who hit him twice. To be fair, Conor is still a big draw but he’s really going against himself. He is an eccentric. Is this what he wants as his identity? A man is walking around with his shirt on, and shouting at his television? Come on. When you’re 22, that’s one thing but as a husband and a father, you’re still a bit immature.”

Once a promoter, Sonnen later posted a clip of his speech on Twitter and tagged McGregor, which prompted the former two-tournament champion to react.

As much as McGregor might like to claim he can’t be baited, “Notorious” seems to have been feuding with everyone lately. Max Holloway, Daniel Cormier, Jorge Masvidal, and Petr Yan just a number of big names McGregor took a photo recently, excluding incidents separate from Kelly machine gun and Italian DJ Francesco Facchinetti. And when Sonnen hit back at McGregor, the former champion couldn’t help but hit back.

McGregor is currently recovering from the broken leg he suffered in a trio fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. He is expected to return to action sometime next year.
