Kevin Lee Says ‘Cokehead’ Conor McGregor Isn’t A Real Gangster
Kevin Lee has never been one to mince his words and today he’s had his say on Conor McGregor’s antics last week in Brooklyn, New York.
Lee, who will headline UFC Atlantic City on April 21, was speaking to reporters in Las Vegas earlier today about his upcoming fight with Edson Barboza. With all the drama that went down last week, it wasn’t long before Lee was asked to give his opinion on the matter.
“I think you have to blame the media for blowing the dude’s head up to [the point] where he thinks his s*** don’t stink and all this, and it’s just, I think a lot of what you see is frustration,” Lee told MMAWeekly.
“I think he knows he’s not been the champ for a while and he didn’t know what else to do. He’s acting like a child and it’s retarded.
“Ya know, I ain’t going to give that cokehead too much press.”
The questions about McGregor didn’t stop there though. Lee went onto explain that he thinks McGregor is trying to be someone he’s not and that he can’t get his head around the Irishman trying to be the thing he’s worked all his life to escape from.
“I think Conor is trying to be this gangster, but he ain’t really from there, ya know,” Lee said.
“I got in this game to get away from that, to get away from having to do s*** like that. It seems he is trying to get there and then going back to where I came from.
“It seems backwards to me and it doesn’t really make sense. You can tell the man don’t really know what he’s doing because when you have that type of money, you ain’t supposed to throw s***.
“He’s supposed to be somewhere holding up a newspaper in front of a camera to show he isn’t anywhere near the scene, but someones going to get touched.
“That whole situation is laughable to someone like me.”
