Dana White didn't scold Conor McGregor at 'Go Big' presser, he told him to zip up his fly

Well, that's embarrassing.

Conor McGregor took it upon himself to clown on and call out just about everybody during the "Go Big" press conference earlier this week (video replay here).

Whether it was Donald Cerrone, Rafael dos Anjos, Chad Mendes or Jose Aldo, "Notorious" had enough fire for everyone on stage. At one point, it seemed that UFC president Dana White was advising his interim Featherweight champion to tone it down, as he leaned over and whispered something in his ear after one of his many outbursts.

But, the brash head honcho was actually telling Conor to zip up his fly, as he was going nuts on everyone with his zipper down.

Via MMA Fighting:

"I told him that his zipper was down. That's it. Everybody thought that I was talking to him about telling him to calm down. His zipper was down. Everybody always reads into it and thinks there's this crazy conversations going on up here. He was jumping up talking shit to everybody and his zipper was down."


Nevertheless, McGregor put everyone on notice, especially Aldo, who gave the fiery Irishman even more ammunition after bolting the presser early to catch a flight for a wedding. But not before the two men had a heated face-to-face encounter.

See it here.

The two men will finally square off when they meet in the main event of UFC 194 on Dec. 12, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada in a 145-pound title unification match.
