Chael Sonnen on Conor McGregor’s New 190-Pound Frame: “How did you get so fat? Why? The answer seems obvious to me redundant.” –

Chael Sonnen and Conor McGregor – UFC

Former UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen shared his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s new 190-pound frame during his latest YouTube video.

McGregor (22-6 MMA) recently took to social media where he shared a few photos showing off his new ‘190 pound granite’ physique (see those here). These images created all the buzz within the MMA community, eliciting mixed reactions from fans and other fighters.

UFC bantamweight Sean O’Malley was admittedly puzzled over Conor McGregor’s decision to “get fat” as he said the following.

“I don’t think that’s necessarily good for fighting, man. I don’t think it will be an advantage or an advantage ”, O’Malley said. “Dude, if Conor weighs 190 (lbs) right now, he shouldn’t go down and fight at 155.”

Those words of ‘Suga’ touched former UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen, who expressed the following words of concern about McGregor’s new look.

“So there’s this image floating around of Conor McGregor looking bigger than we’ve ever seen him weighing something like 190 pounds. And (Sean) O’Malley said ‘Dude, I don’t know if that help you fight ‘, and I don’t know where that would help you fight. And if he actually weighs a hundred and ninety pounds, he shouldn’t go down to 155. Now keep that thought because Sean is the only one stating the obvious.First of all, this picture of Conor, he didn’t look great.

Chael Sonnen continued:

“Conor is a chiseled man. There are people who pay Conor to carry their things. He has this fantastic build. This photo of him at 190 [lbs], I can’t give the same compliments. He appeared to be extremely bloated. And when someone weighs 190 – it’s used to weighing 155, 175; what you have to ask yourself is how. How did you get so fat? Why? The answer seems obvious to me redundant. You don’t practice. Sonnen said. “You can’t train like you have to prepare in MMA, which we are well aware of. We are well aware that Conor is not. He has an injured leg and he’s not doing what he’s used to. He doesn’t jump rope. He’s not running. He does not pull the sled. He doesn’t train. We understood. He has to do other exercises. But it’s still important to know because that’s what Sean’s talking about. If you don’t play our sport, who cares what you weigh? If your calorie deficit versus intake has gotten so out of control that you’re fatter than ever, that’s not a good thing.

Conor McGregor hasn’t competed since July when he broke his leg during his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier. The setback marked the Irishman’s second straight loss and the third of his last four fights overall.
