Rocky and Rambo star Sylvester Stallone has expressed concern over UFC fighter Conor McGregor after being recently arrested in Miami.
Speaking to TMZ Sports in Beverly Hills, Stallone said the Irish fighter faces a personal and professional crossroads after losing long-time rival Khabib Nurmagomedov. "This is a crossroads in his life," he said. "This is probably the most important thing, because if he does not live up to his ideal, if he can not overcome his fear and beat that man, I think it will plague him for the rest of his life."
"I think he lost the last time because he got angry, he became proud, he became arrogant," Stallone said about McGregor's defeat against Nurmagomedov last year. "He went straight to that gentleman and was hit straight in the face when he could have been defensive. There was no plan B. Not even a plan A minus.
The big fan of UFC, Stallone, wants to see a rematch between the two fighters in case McGregor shakes off his inner saboteur and brings him a new stance Ring. "I want to see a man who leaves everything on the table," he said.
And as McGregor behaves in public, Stallone has some simple advice. "Smile on," he said. "You can not criticize a smile."
McGregor was arrested last week for shattering a fan phone and has since stated he must work on his patience. Maybe he should take over Stallone as his new manager for anger management.
