The rollercoaster ride that is a #ConorMcGregor-headlined card has hit its first loop, as expected. And like a rollercoaster, you see everything coming but that doesn't mean the rush isn't cathartic and the adrenaline isn't real. History is potentially 48 hours away, and Conor McGregor, #EddieAlvarez and the rest of the fighters on #UFC205 have stamped today's press conference with expected insanity.
Conor McGregor, just like at UFC 202, was late. Eddie Alvarez was shouting that he was "f*cking dead, that's where he is," amidst the boos of the crowd who he said would be silent, then thanked them for coming.
Eddie then went on to mock the Irish fans, saying that this was their representative, and as a half-Irish guy, he was ashamed. The boos RAINED DOWN, even with Philadelphia fans nearby.
Eddie was asked another question about where Conor was, then he decided that he would see the fans tomorrow, dropped the mic and walked out of the presser.
This was a furious Eddie Alvarez coming out party.
