Conor McGregor talks entirely too much trash. We've come to expect it, and as a matter of fact, I personally have come to enjoy it - tremendously. The dude is a wordsmith and has no qualms attacking people and specifically their character without showing any sign of remorse.
Most recently, he attacked Floyd Mayweather - a talker himself.
Earlier this month, Floyd had some shit to talk to Fight Hype:
"They say he talks a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased. Like I said before, all I'm saying is this: I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists."
Conor McGregor... if you didn't know somehow by now... is Irish. And he don't play that.
At the UFC 197 press conference, McGregor went in:
"I am a multi-cultural individual. I take from all cultures. Look at me. I am a product of many cultures as a young, Irish man. I know he wasn't saying that I am that person, but it put me in that bracket. I did not appreciate that one bit. There's people buried in the desert for less than that."
He followed up on his Facebook post, in which he posted that Irish people had been oppressed and that he didn't want race to be a deciding factor in this argument.
"I think Floyd needs to learn before he opens his mouth. You don't put a man like me in a situation like that. You don't put me in a name that's got to do with prejudice. You don't know nothing about me."
He wrapped it up with this:
"Floyd needs to understand before he speaks who he is speaking about. And that is as simple as that."
