Stephen A. Smith Responds To Joe Rogan, Conor McGregor Replies

When you decide to call out Stephen A. Smith, you better expect an answer, as Conor McGregor and Joe Rogan are finding out.

There are definitely those that are not in favor of ESPN continuing to use Stephen A. Smith for UFC events.

Last week during UFC 246, Smith came on after Conor McGregor’s victory over Donald Cerrone and did his thing.

Joe Rogan responded to Smith during his podcast, and Smith sent out a message via Twitter Saturday night.

It did not take McGregor long to answer that message by Smith.

‘The call you discuss here is A+. I didn’t show enough. I’m not paid by the hour though. Joe’s comments however, come from you saying the opposition fighter quit,” McGregor posted. “Broken nose/orbital bone say different. Fighting is vicious. Those who make the walk deserve full respect!”

The war of words continued from Smith, as he responded:

“Sir, mich respect to the great (McGregor) My recollection on what I said is ‘That’s the way it looked,'” Smith wrote. “Cowboy Cerrone is a perennial top-10 fighter. Much respect to him for the lengthy career he has had. Wishing him nothing but the best. But I don’t think it’s unfair to say that more than 40-seconds was expected from as tough of an SOB as he is. Nor do I think it’s wrong to assume that there’s no way that’s 40-second fight would take place w/ you vs Nurmegamedov or Masvidal. We expected more than what we got. Props to YOU for.”
