‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor once again entertained the crowd with his trademark style of talking at UFC 257’s pre-match press conference. UFC hosted the press conference for UFC 257 including Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, Dan Hooker, and Michael Chandler.
There is no bad blood involved between Conor McGregor and his opponent Dustin Poirier this time so the press conference went pretty smooth. Both of them showed respect for each other which they will be carrying before stepping inside the Octagon.
Conor made it clear that he has the utmost respect for Poirier but when he’ll be stepping inside the Octagon it is going to be pure business only. One question that caught the interest of the crowd was one reporter asked Dana White about Khabib Nurmagomedov’s comeback.
One of the reporters asks Dana, “Khabib made an interview yesterday still saying that he doesn’t want to make his mom upset by returning have you seen that interview and have you talked with him again?”
To which White replies, “I told you guys we’ll see what happens this week” he was still answering and Conor interrupts him and says, “We’ll get him, we’ll get him.”
Conor says the world needs this rivalry to be settled
Since Conor McGregor stepped on the fight Island he has been constantly talking about his arch-rival Khabib Nurmagomedov. In his interview with Ariel Helwani, Conor even said that Khabib retired because he is scared of me.
Conor also added that this rivalry needs to be settled. ‘The Notorious’ says, “We should go again. The world needs this rivalry to be settled. And if he doesn’t have it in him, if he doesn’t have the courage, that’s no problem. I’m not going to… we’ve been on a mad old ride, myself and that man and it should be settled. If it’s not, it is what it is.”
