Conor McGregor has received plaudits from Jon Anik for his outstanding oratory abilities. He asserted that the forthcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) might be a fan favourite thanks to these skills.
This May, McGregor will make his long-awaited return to the UFC. Michael Chandler and Conor McGregor will compete against one another as coaches in the forthcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, and they will also square off in the octagon after the season finale, according to a recent statement from Dana White.
The Irishman previously participated in season 22 of the programme in 2015, making this his second stint as a coach on TUF. The Notorious, who was known for his skill at turning trash talk into a weapon, led a group of contestants in a fight against Uriah Faber.
“You remember when I said he was a brilliant orator? puts me to disgrace in terms of innate articulation abilities. Therefore, it might be absolutely electrifying if Conor McGregor is willing to give people stuff on television alongside Michael Chandler.”
When Jon Anik revealed the “most elite ability” of Conor McGregor
Conor McGregor’s exceptional communication abilities have garnered acclaim from Jon Anik before, including in the aforementioned podcast broadcast.
Unquestionably, the major attraction for the UFC is “The Notorious,” who continues to be among the most well-liked and lucrative athletes in the world. The promotion will try to harness his star power to breathe new life into TUF opposite Michael Chandler despite having to sit out for more than a year due to a leg ailment.
Despite the fact that the Irishman won awards for his outstanding performances between 2013 and 2016, Anik once claimed that fighting isn’t even the Irishman’s strongest skill. Anik asserted the following in an earlier interview with Mike Heck of MMA Fighting:
“I recently had a conversation with someone who said Conor McGregor is a fantastic athlete. However, McGregor’s capacity to speak clearly and spontaneously in the heat of the moment is undoubtedly his most exceptional talent. I admire Conor McGregor because I can speak well.”
The Irishman hasn’t competed since suffering his second straight knockout loss to “The Diamond” in July 2021 when he was defeated by Dustin Poirier via TKO. In the bout, McGregor injured his leg, and he required intensive physical therapy. The Notorious, however, is prepared to face Iron later this year when he returns to the octagon.
