In one of his previous videos, Chael Sonnen Stated that he has been keeping a close eye on Conor McGregor since his announcement of a comeback. Sonnen added that McGregor has been making relentless efforts to stage a successful comeback and this can be marked by a noticeable change in his demeanor. He added that McGregor approached his comeback in a rather quieter and self-reflective manner.

In that Video, he added  “It was a very humble comment from a guy who goes out of his way to make sure he never makes humble comments. I loved it because if you’re a true competitor if you really have to view yourself that way, you have to. If you want to stay real and you want to be the king marketer, you can’t let the public know you view yourself this way. So it was his major push and pull. I liked it. I thought it was refreshing. I like when Conor breaks character every now and then.”
