Even during the UFC 229 first press conference, Mcgregor was all over and spitting venom on Khabib while Russian was remained calm throughout the presser.
Last night’s UFC 229 open workouts were full of excitement as top name fighters who participated and afterward had a lot to say to fans who were in attendance.
After finishing his workout, Irish fans booed at Khabib, to that ‘Eagle’ fired some shots of his own not only at Conor Mcgregor but Irish fans too.
In three days, you’re gonna like me. You’re gonna like me in three days. I have question for Ireland. What about your language? What about Irish language? Where is your language right now? What’s wrong with your language? You guys change it? What about your language? Please someone can give me answer? You guys with England right now?” (H/T BloodyElbow)
