At the UFC 196 press conference on Thursday, the trash talk began very early in the event.
Conor McGregor was asked what made him so special in comparison to other combat sports athletes and UFC fighters.
McGregor responded with:
“There’s a lot of people that play it safe in the game. Although there’s many scared pussies in the fight game if I’m being honest. They don’t take risks. And people who don’t take risks will never climb to that next level. I take risks all the time. Every single fight I’ve taken a risk, and I continue to do so.”
