Wednesday afternoon at the UFC 196 press conference in California, Conor McGregor threw some verbal jabs at Rafael dos Anjos, Frankie Edgar, and Jose Aldo.

McGregor taunted dos Anjos for pulling out of the fight with a ‘bruised foot’, as well as taunting Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo for not accepting the fight after campaigning for it for so long.

Edgar of course turned down the fight due to a groin tear that has forced the former champ to take the last 4 weeks off from training.

Following the press conference Edgar took to Twitter to react to McGregor’s comments.
