On Thursday evening, Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez sat down for a questions and answers session with the media in the build up to UFC 205.
There is now just over a week remaining until Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez finally face off in Madison Square Garden and, based on Thursday night’s media call, there should be plenty more fireworks before the 12th of November.
The 45 minute back and forth included a number of golden moments with McGregor assuring fans that retirement couldn’t be further from his mind while also suggesting that he may defend both titles should he win at UFC 205.
The Irishman also began his infamous mental warfare by repeatedly pushing the message that he was going to end Alvarez’s career. However, perhaps the best moment of all came when a journalist asked the featherweight champion about his UFC 189 bout with Chad Mendes.
During that fight, McGregor was repeatedly taken to the mat as the American attempted to wrestle his way to victory. On the night, although the Irishman was essentially dominated on the floor, he still managed to knock his opponent out in the dying moments of the second round.
Asked if he had improved his wrestling game since then on the media call, Alvarez got very excited as he attempted to wind up the SBG star about his UFC 189 performance. By the end of McGregor’s rant, Alvarez would have surely been wishing he didn’t say a thing.
