Conor McGregor reveals why he and Ronda Rousey share a unique bond

Oh really?


It’s tough at the top but it sure is crowded at the bottom.

Conor McGregor is an interim featherweight UFC champion while Ronda Rousey is the undisputed bantamweight champion of the world.

McGregor has previously expressed his admiration for the American, and now he has revealed why he thinks there is such a mutual respect between both fighters.

The Dubliner feels that he and Rousey’s shared status as champions is crucial to the UFC, and the way they deal with opponents means they have a unique bond.

“I believe in the male spectrum I am dominating the game 100%. However in the female Ronda is a two-time ESPY winner and she’s a dominant champion.”

“It is very hard for her because she is so dominant”

The Dubliner is getting ready to face Jose Aldo at the UFC 194 in December while Rousey’s next fight is in Melbourne.

“There’s a lot of questions about me and I am thankful for all the questions because that generates interest and that in turn generates revenue.”

“And then Ronda is so dominant and she is slaughtering these women so ruthlessly and that’s why I feel we are both equal, we are both at the top of the game

“She is a special athlete and I am happy to be up there with Ronda running the game.”
