Eddie Alvarez had his fair share of jabs at “The Notorious” while the two went back and forth at it in verbal warfare.

“You will not fight after this,” McGregor told Alvarez. “You will not look the same. You will not think the same.”

“Everybody in the lightweight division has beat Nate Diaz and Conor couldn’t even do that,” Alvarez said on the conference call.

“I’m going to retire him on this night. You will be hurt badly,” McGregor stated to Alvarez.

“You’re so full of s**t,” Alvarez said laughing over the phone.

“The guys he’s faced aren’t close to the caliber that I am,” Alvarez went on to say. “He will realize he’s been fighting good style match-ups and he’s f*cked.”

McGregor went on to admit that Alvarez is a tough fighter but said that he will hurt him in this fight and it will have a lasting effect.

“He’s been through a hell of a lot or wars. But this will be it for you. You’re going to be badly, badly hurt Eddie,” “The Notorious” said to Alvarez.

Alvarez went on to claim that his win over McGregor will set him on his path to being the greatest lightweight of all time.

“I will go down as the best lightweight in UFC history. It will start with Conor.”

Conor went on to detail further on the kind of damage he will inflict on the lightweight champ in the fight.

“I’m going to toy with this man. I’m going to really, truly rearrange his facial structure. His wife and kids won’t recognize him again,” McGregor proudly said.
