The UFC held a press conference in January to promote their upcoming super fight between featherweight champion Conor McGregor and lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 on March 5.
McGregor showed up 30 minutes late to the presser and went into his promotional shtick, unleashing a venomous succession of insults directed at his Brazilian opponent throughout the duration of the hour-long fiasco.
He called dos Anjos a traitor to his country. He insulted his team at King’s MMA. He called dos Anjos ugly and referred to him as a ‘free TV fighter’ unworthy of his upcoming pay-per-view billing.
The brash featherweight even went as far as to bring dos Anjos’ family into the mix, saying: “I wanna send you back to our Brazilian media partners at Globo and have you answer to the Brazilian people why we have to book you a hotel in your own home country, why your kids' names are Bob and Donald – why are you raising American children? Why don’t you trust in your own people?”
