Everyone’s favorite Irishman made his first public UFC appearance since getting bested by Nate Diaz back in March. Conor McGregor fielded questions along with the Stockton brawler at the UFC 202 tickets-on-sale press conference in Las Vegas on Thursday.
UFC 202 is scheduled for Aug. 20 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
If you want to skip straight to the Conor highlights, here’s the “best” of his trash talk at the presser, albeit he has seemed to chill out a bit. What else can you do when you meet reality face to face, like he did when Nate submitted him. He must be respected for wanting a rematch with Nate at 170 pounds. Conor does say he will continue to dominate and defend his title at 145 pounds, and plans to dominate the 155 pound division as well.
Here’s the staredown between Diaz and McGregor.
