McGregor slams 'glass-jawed bum' Khabib


//

Conor McGregor was up to his old antics again in a fiery and provocative pre-fight press conference with Khabib Nurmagomedov, in what’s being billed as possibly the biggest pay-per-view fight in UFC history.

It’s the first time both men have come face-to face since the Irish fighter was caught on video throwing a trolley at the window of the bus Nurmagomedov was travelling in, apparently seeking retribution for an earlier incident involving friend Artem Lobov.

McGregor accepted a plea deal from authorities in New York over the clash, after initially being charged with disorderly conduct.

The Irish star didn’t let his opponent from Dagestan forget about the incident, taunting him for his lack of action during the clash.

“He s--- his jocks,” said McGregor.

“The first thing I did when I showed up at that bus, I showed my hands to show I came there unarmed. Step off the bus. You talked the big game, now I’m here. And he did nothing, he cowered behind women and caused what happened to happen, so that’s f---ing that.”

“I just thank the Lord Jesus Christ that man did not have the balls to step foot off that bus because trust me, if that bus door had opened, I would not be here right now,” McGregor added.

“He would be in a box, and I would be in a cell”.

Nurmagomedov remained composed and disciplined throughout the press gathering, despite several insults thrown his way including a number of low-blows about his father.

Khabib starts bark back.

McGregor also laid into the UFC for not making the press conference open to the public. UFC head Dana White explained that he didn’t want any problems in the state of New York, considering McGregor’s record with the bus incident.

Yet that didn’t stop McGregor from criticising the move.

“If I was an owner and I was part of the promotion, I would have had f---ing fans in this arena. Where are the fans at?” McGregor said.

“They’re the ones who pay the bills and they’re the ones who deserve this show. You bring me all over the f---ing world and we’re just sitting here.

“I’m on probation up to me eyeballs and have ongoing and incoming civil cases — and I come here to do this bulls---? Bring the f---ing fans here. You wanted a war? Well here we f---ing are.”

Khabib just shook his head when asked for a prediction for the fight, however, McGregor took another opportunity to rubbish his opponent.

“Domination, his head bouncing off the canvas,” he said.

“All his pony talk is going to be put on blast. I think one (round), he has a glass jaw. I know he is afraid of a smack and if you’re afraid of a smack off me, it’ll feel like a double-barrelled shotgun.”

McGregor’s promotional company is involved in promoting the fight with the UFC along with his official whisky being a sponsor.

UFC president Dana White revealed the fight is on track to become the biggest pay-per-view fight in UFC history with 2.5 million buys.

The record was set by McGregor’s rematch against Nate Diaz in 2016.
