Conor McGregor is one of the greatest fighters to ever grace the Octagon, but it’s his domination outside the cage that has made him a true superstar. Every opponent he’s faced has had to survive months of withering smack talk culminating in a press conference where “The Notorious” rips them a new arsehole.
In honor of today’s press conference with Khabib Nurmagomedov in New York City to promote UFC 229 on Oct. 6, 2018, MMA Nation has put together an exclusive look into some of the best moments and biggest disses from McGregor during UFC media events. From Jose Aldo to Chad Mendes to Nate Diaz and Eddie Alvarez, we have all the classic McGregor jabs that softened his opponents up for victory in the cage.
McGregor faces Nurmagomedov next month in Las Vegas, Nevada, in what is undoubtedly his biggest challenge to date. With a perfect professional mixed martial arts (MMA) record (26-0), Khabib claimed McGregor’s vacated UFC Lightweight title at UFC 223 in April 2018. Leading up to the event, the two were involved in an altercation in the bowels of the Barclays Center that saw McGregor arrested and charged with felony mischief charges.
To say these two have beef would be an understatement. It’s all leading up to what many expect will be the biggest fight in UFC history, so sit back and enjoy the show!
