  1. that promo at the beginning of the press conference is my favorite! the best IMO, gives me chills every time, and the way it ends with a shot of conor that look he has on his face after he won his first ufc title, he doesn't get that same look after winning them nowadays but anyways ending it with the "I'm undisputed!" Such a badass promo

  2. To be fair McGregor plays it better than anyone. Has Eddie squirming like a worm on a hook with the no show, this will all be fuzzing his button moon head and causing great anxiety, not a good mindset for a fight. For McGregor to walk in pimping the mink coat when all else dressed in suit's is a laugh! Win lose or draw he's having a ball and will be incredibly rich after the 2 weight attempt, every MMA fan should be loving this!

  3. This is the greatest press conference of all-time. Conor shouting "Shut your fookin' mouth!" repeatedly to Eddie, the complete annihilation of Jeremy aka. the LEGENDARY "Who the fook is that guy?" line, and of course the tie-wearing Eddie-bashing "journalist" in the end. The greatest.
