Damn, Conor McGregor took this guy’s soul…
UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor was again making lots of noise last night. Showing up to the UFC 205 presser dressed as a pimp and 30 minutes late, ‘The Notorious’ was on form.
Blasting Eddie Alvarez with stinging insults from the word go, McGregor also got in to the theatrical mood. As the lightweight champion chuckled away, McGregor attempted to scare him with a steel chair.
Watching a press conference with Conor McGregor is almost like a sitcom. There are highs, lows, and always a rowdy crowd in attendance. Is it all an act? On the most part, probably yes.
Selling tickets and making that dollar is the bottom line for most fighters, especially Conor McGregor. When it was raised by a reporter at the UFC 205 presser, though, ‘The Notorious’ did not react too well.

This unlucky reporter asked the wrong question during the UFC 205 press conference. He wanted to know if the confrontation between McGregor and Alvarez was staged.
UFC president Dana White chuckled in response, but it wasn’t until afterwards that Conor McGregor spoke about it.

That was about as hard to watch as it gets! Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez will finally battle in New York tomorrow nigh, with so much on the line. McGregor could hold two belts, but it’s more than that.
The future of the UFC hangs in the balance, as does McGregor’s fighting future. Does he have kid(s) on the way, will he retire? So many questions will be answered, and no doubt a hundred more will be raised at this historic showdown in the Madison Square Garden.
