The UFC’s Go Big press conference continues to generate headlines.
There was one moment during the Las Vegas press event on Friday night, when UFC president Dana White whispered something into the ear of interim-featherweight champion, Conor McGregor.
It didn’t go unnoticed.
Many observers assumed that White was attempting to calm the Irishman, who had turned the event into a showcase for his trash-talking talents. McGregor, who lambasted half the roster, was simply on fire. He was a verbal dynamo. Caught up in his zeal for self-promotion, however, “The Notorious” failed to notice that he was flying low throughout.
For almost any other fighter at the event this would not have been a major issue, as they spent most of their time sitting behind a desk, but the energetic Dubliner was, as usual, doing things a little differently.
“He was jumping up talking sh*t to everybody and his zipper was down”, said Dana White, according to mmafighting.com.
The prez interjected to give his star fighter a subtle heads-up.
When you see a close up of the interaction, however, it is rather obvious what has happened. It also makes for hilarious viewing….
