Former UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor went off on current 155-pound title holder Khabib Nurmagomedov at today’s UFC 229 press conference.
“Mystic Mac” was asked why he chose to come back to MMA for this particular fight. His answer was simple, because he loves this game.
“If I was an owner and part of the promotion, I would have had the f*cking fans in this arena. Where’s the f*cking fans at? That’s who we fight for. That’s who pays the bills. That’s who deserves this show. Bring me all over the f*cking world and I’m just sitting here in this thing. I’m on probation up to my eyeballs and in ongoing and incoming civil cases and I have to come here to do this bullshit? Bring the fans here! Here we are, you wanted a war… Here we f*cking are. You know what I’m saying let’s get a war going. F*cking all this other stupid shit. But I mean hey I didn’t get what I asked so here we are.”
Conor McGregor continued:
“I came back for the love of this. To come and shut this man (Khabib) up. That little rat, that little weasel. A little hard man in groups. I met many of them through my years. A man who grows in numbers. But a man who when on his own and confronted cowers away and that’s what you saw with that shit on the bus over there. He shit is jocks in front of his own countrymen. I’m truly going to love putting a bad, bad beating on this little glass jaw rat!”
Conor McGregor finished his rant by proclaiming that had Khabib Nurmagomedov gotten off the fighter bus at UFC 223 in Brooklyn, he’s be dead.
“If you he had gotten off that bus, he’d be dead!”
