McGregor was in top form on Conan.
With UFC 229 very close, McGregor is everywhere right now. Conor McGregor appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show last night promoting his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC Lightweight title.
He lived up to his usual reputation and was full of one-liners and banter. When asked what he saw in Khabib’s eyes during the press conference he answered “His eyeballs turned to glass, the blood rushes from his body and sprints out of his arse”
Of course, just like the press conference he promoted his new whiskey Proper 22 and raised a toast with Conan to the fight: “I’m two days away from the biggest fight of my life, so I’m only going to drink half the bottle!”
When asked how he feels about Khabib wrestling bears as a child he didn’t hesitate stating that he has never wrestled an Irish gorilla!
