BEN’S BLOG: ’I Was Here’
I woke up this morning and checked immediately as to who won the boxing. The result wasn’t a surprise but I quickly had a look on YouTube to see if I could watch the highlights.
Conor McGregor showed such bravery. With a completely unorthodox style, he battled on, and unlike so many of the fighters who have met Mayweather before, showed him no fear, and instead ran at him and kept hustling. Is it fair to say, Blog, that he did far better than any of us expected?
As the bout ended and CM’s corner-man came round to console him, I noticed McGregor saying a few words to himself. He said several times “I was here. I was here. I was here…”.
Yes, Mr McGregor; you were. You put your best foot forward. You pushed on. You never gave up.
YOU’VE GOT TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT.
