When asked about Conor’s recent Italian DJ assault and VMA incident, Colby replied, “He just looks to get headlines. He’s just looking to stay in the spotlight, you know, get some attention around him because he’s coming off some losses. People are questioning if he still has it, what he’s still capable of doing. He’s made a lot of money, man.”

“He had a great career, and he’s had some special moments in the UFC and in his career where he’s made so much money that he’s so filthy rich that he thinks he’s above the law now.”

Further stating, “He thinks that money can buy you whatever you want, but money cannot buy you out of punching an old dude off a stool, or hitting someone’s phone, or throwing a trolley through a bus, or his latest at the music awards, trying (to attack) Machine Gun Kelly. It’s sad to see, man.”
