Yesterday the UFC 197 press conference went down.

As many expected, Conor McGregor stole the show as he relentlessly talked trash to UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. One of the topics McGregor touched upon was why he opted to fight Rafael dos Anjos rather than defend his UFC featherweight championship against Frankie Edgar, who became the #1 contender after defeating Chad Mendes, or Nate Diaz, who called McGregor out after his win over Michael Johnson.
