Looks like The recent remark made by Firas Zahabi on Conor Vs. Max Holloway rematch of did not satisfy Conor McGregor. Tristar Gym coach Firas Zahabi was on the' Ask me anything' session recently, where he shared his thoughts on Conor McGregor and Max Holloway rematch.

 

I think Holloway has grown leaps and bounds since then. In my opinion, Holloway would outpunch him, outwork him. He would do very much what Diaz did, but more, I think McGregor got away with a lot of stuff like the leg kicks against Diaz, but I don’t think he’ll have that against Holloway.

He Further added:

Holloway has the same type of output as Diaz, the same kind of chin as Diaz. He’s more athletic than Diaz, he has more variety in his attacks, he has more kicking, kneeing and elbowing, and his chin is just phenomenal. So I really think he would take it in the later rounds. I think the blueprint for beating McGregor is better understood by the roster.

McGregor eventually made those observations, which didn't sit well with him and gave a pretty disagreeable answer via a few tweets, one of which was deleted already.

The first tweet read something like:

All these young mouthy clock hitters. Stay ready.
