Conor McGregor made his first public appearance to promote the fight at a UFC press conference on Thursday in New York. Returning to the UFC after 2 years, he dominated the conference in McGregor style.
Conor dropped his best verbal lines on the Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov and made it look like he doesn't even need anyone but just the microphone.
Some of the best lines that The Notorious unleashed on Press Conference.
“If I was an owner and I was part of the promotion I would have had f**kin fans in this arena. Where’s the f**kin fans at? That’s who we fight for. That’s who pays the bills, that’s who deserves this show.”
“I just thank the Lord Jesus Christ that man hadn’t got the balls to step foot off that bus. Because trust me, if that bus door had opened, this man would be dead right now. This man would be in a box and I would be in a cell and we would not have this great fight ahead of us."
“Shame me. You said, ‘Send location.’ Here it is right in front of you. I’m right in front of you. Did you not see me outside the bus? No? Did you not see me outside the bus f**kin right in front of you?”
“Here’s my location you little fool. Right in front of you. Do something about it. Do something about it you little fool. You’ll do nothing.”
“You’re a fake, lying rat. I’m real. I wear it on my chest. There’s a gorilla on my chest and I wear it proud, mate. I don’t lie about nothing.”
“I’ll believe one (round to win). He has a glass jaw. All my Chechen friends, they tell me they have chicken jaws in Dagestan.”
“I came back for the love of this. To come back and shut this man up. A little rat, a little weasel. … This I am going to truly love. Putting a bad, bad beating on this little glass-jaw rat.”
“The man was a fanboy. He bought t-shirts of mine. He supported the cause. You little fan-boy. You little fan-boy b**ch.”
“I can’t believe he’s 26-0. I’ve never met an unbeaten amateur in the game. He’s fought, nobody. Absolutely nobody.”
“Your little fake belt over there that you beat the No. 11 ranked real estate agent and you bring that belt up on stage like it’s a real belt. You’re a phony, a fake and I’m going to expose you.”
“Ask these nuts. I don’t have to do nothing for nobody. I’m psycho bred, mate. I don’t have to lick no-ones arsehole for a check, like f–king you.”
