Disrespectful? Nah, this kid is selling pay-per-view (PPV) buys.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight fighting sensation Conor McGregor did exactly what he said he would, and that's trash Dennis Siver in the UFC Fight Night 59 mixed martial arts (MMA) main event on Sunday night (Jan. 18, 2015) inside the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

Now that he cleared his final hurdle (recap), "Notorious" will move on to challenge Jose Aldo for the featherweight title later this year. A venue has yet to be determined, but the promotion is hoping to secure Ireland's Croke Park Stadium. If not, expect it to land in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With that in mind, the promotion asked "Junior" to sit cageside for the UFC Fight Night 59 headliner. When all was said and done and Siver's goose was cooked, McGregor bolted from the cage, bullied his way into the crowd, and started throwing serious shade at the champion.

"I don't even know what I said," McGregor admitted after the fight. "I was trying to fuck with him. Tell him to get the spit bucket and spit-shine that belt because I'm coming for it."

While the cageside officials were scrambling to restore order, Aldo just stood there and laughed, unfazed at the Irish aggressor. The Brazilian is 25-1 and hasn't lost a fight in nearly a decade, so it's understandable why he would be confident.

"He's just a joke and a court jester to me, so I laughed at him," Aldo responded. "I'm not really impressed."

Expect UFC President Dana White to elaborate on the future of Conor McGregor vs. Jose Aldo in the UFC Fight Night 59 post-fight press conference (watch it here).
