Most Irish fighters seem to find Conor McGregor an inspiration and then ones that don’t certainly lend the UFC big name their support.
However, the former Crumlin BC has come in for some stick after he was submitted by Nate Diaz in UFC 196.
First former Irish and current Heavyweight Champion of the World Tyson Fury claimed ‘the real fighting pride of Ireland’ would go to sleep before tapping out.
Now the English puncher, who took the WBO middleweight World title off Andy Lee in Manchester last December has weighed in with his opinion.
“Notorious? He tapped out in three seconds! I think he tapped out a bit too easy,” Saunders said.
“I’ve been choked out for longer down the pub!”
