    Rewatching UFC 10 and Tank Abbott was a guest at the commentary seat and they were asking him what to expect from his next fight, and Abbott replied "have you ever watched those documentaries on animals? Have you ever seen a gazelle getting ripped apart.... well thats whats going to happen in my next fight".

    Either its coincidence or Mcgregor is an avid UFC historian.

    It's probably a coincidence and the line came back to bite him in the ass anyway.

    It's not uncommon for adversaries to refer to the other as prey like a gazelle.

    I think you are reaching a little. Ive heard that metaphor quite often. I dont think they got it from Tank Abbot.

    If he really wants to quote Tank, he would have to say something like "I felt like I was getting raped in the ass by Freddy Mercury from Queen. Get off of me man!"

    I wouldn't be surprised if Conor didn't even know who Tank Abbott is.

    pretty sure if you analyze everything conor says and does, it would be taken from somewhere else.
