Conor McGregor told to get out of comfort zone or risk 'going down' after shock UFC loss to Poirier by Georges St-Pierre

CONOR MCGREGOR has been told to get out of his comfort zone or risk ‘going down’ by UFC legend Georges St-Pierre.

The Irishman is still reeling from his shock loss to Dustin Poirier in January but insists he wants a quick return to the cage.

He recently hit back at claims he's lost his love for mixed martial arts, insisting '99' per cent of fighters would've retired if they earned a fraction of his net worth.

Former two-division champion McGregor has fought just three times and won once in the octagon since winning the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in November 2016.

And the iconic St-Pierre says Notorious needs to make a huge change if he is to return to championship form after Khabib Nurmagomedov vacated the lightweight belt after re-confirming his retirement.

Speaking to ESPN, GSP said: “When I made my first million, of course my life has changed.

“I had more security and I didn’t feel that I was fighting for the same reason that I was in the beginning in terms of security.

“When I was poor in the beginning, I was on the edge. I knew if I lost I would have been dead and my life would be a mess. When you get money, these things change.

“However, to keep performing, you need to get out of your comfort zone.

“You cannot stay in your comfort zone during a training camp because you’re trying to recreate the same element that you will face for a fight.”


He continued: “When you’re gonna fight, you won’t be in your comfort zone, so it is imperative that Conor, if you want to get back on the road of success, he needs to get out of his comfort zone.

“He needs not to be the boss of his training camp. He needs his coaches to tell him now you’re gonna spar this guy, you’re gonna go there, do this.

“Even if it doesn’t please him, he needs to go through that. Because if you stay in your comfort zone, the only thing that can happen is you will go down. You need to do that.”
