Conor McGregor lays into Donald Trump over Ronda Rousey (Video)

"She will be back"

Kevin Beirne

From one UFC superstar to another, Conor McGregor has stood up for fallen champ Ronda Rousey.

Speaking to TMZ as he arrived in the United States ahead of his title fight with Jose Aldo, The Notorious defended Rousey, saying: “It was a very tough fight.

“Holly [Holm] fought a great fight. And much respect. This is the fight business, things happen. Ronda will be back. True champions come back. And congratulations to Holly the new champion.

“Defeat is the secret in breeding success. True champions can conquer that, overcome it and come back – so I wish her all the best.”

The Irishman was then asked about Donald Trump’s criticisms of Rousey, and gave a pitch-perfect response.

“Why is Donald Trump talking trash? I didn’t know Donald Trump was talking trash… Donald can shut his big fat mouth. I don’t give a f**k about Donald Trump.”
