The former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor faced the first TKO loss of his career in his comeback match against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257. Conor believed this happened due to the ring rust and his inactivity for a long time.

But the UFC G.O.A.T Georges St Pierre believes it happened because Conor McGregor is staying in his comfort zone and he needs to get out of it otherwise he will go down.

In his latest interview with ESPN, Georges St Pierre says, “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.”

“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.”

GSP added, “We talk about Conor, but let’s talk about also Dustin Poirier, Poirier did amazing, let’s not take away the performance of Dustin Poirier, it was amazing. He deserved the win.”

“Sometimes we have the tendency when someone is so dominant to only talk about how he didn’t look the same. We see that very often, also with Israel Adesanya and Blachowicz.”

“Blachowicz in that fight, same thing, he surprised me. He showed how good he was. I was not expecting to see, I didn’t know how good he was, same thing with Dustin Poirier, I didn’t know how good he was.”
