Conor McGregor training partner Peter Queally says this weekend’s Bellator fight with Myles Price is personal after Price’s decision to travel to the US to help Khabib Nurmagomedov train to face Conor.
Queally’s showdown with Price in the co-main event of Bellator’s return to the Irish capital on Saturday has been hailed as the best ‘All-Ireland’ MMA bout in history.
Price is a former teammate of both McGregor and Queally at John Kavanagh’s SBG Ireland gym in the center of Dublin, though his tenure in the world famous facility is now over, in part due to Price’s decision to travel to the United States to train at San Jose’s American Kickboxing Academy, where he spent time helping Khabib Nurmagomedov prepare to face McGregor at UFC 229 back in October.
Queally certainly isn’t letting sleeping dogs lie .
“To paint the picture of this weekend’s fight, Ireland’s biggest sportsman was preparing for the biggest fight of his career,” Queally explained this week of his motivation ahead of the Bellator 217 co-main. “Myles Price, an Irishman who is a former teammate of Conor, spent his own money to travel 5,000 miles to go help his opponent. That’s why this fight is happening. He’s a rat, that’s why this fight is happening.”
This should be a good fight.
