Well this was absolutely mental…
Although Conor McGregor’s PR work is at times controversial, it’s usually rather easy to see the method behind the madness. Last night however, was a different kettle of fish entirely.
Having been named as the Fighters Only MMA Fighter of the Year, McGregor elected to send in a video acceptance speech that left the attending audience in stunned silence.
Rather than simply thanking everyone for the prize, the ‘Notorious’ Irishman went on a rant that essentially labeled everyone present at the event as bums.
Check out his absolutely mental acceptance speech below;
“I apologize for not being there. There’s another man that must be slain, another champion that must be dethroned. There’s more numbers that need to be broken. I need to feed all you bums. I need to feed every single one of yous in the game, so I’ve got to keep working, because yous bums don’t work.”
“You got the heavyweight champion, who’s a pussy, pulling out with a sore toe. How is the heavyweight champion going to pull out with a sore toe? What kind of champion is that? The game is on its knees, so I apologize I can’t be there at the awards, but I am out here putting it in, working, putting in the true work, the work it takes to keep every one of yous fed.
“So thank you, and thank me.”
