Conor McGregor through some harsh words at Eddie Alvarez in today’s media conference for 205. Despite having respect for the UFC lightweight champion, McGregor promised to “rearrange his facial structure” for saying he is the easiest fight in the 155-pound division.
I’m going to hurt you badly. I’m going to rip you up badly, I swear to God. Trust me, you’re going regret that.
I feel [people are] going to see something they haven’t seen before. I’m going to toy with this man. I’m going to really, truly rearrange his facial structure. His wife and kids will never recognize him again. His friends and the people that he knows will know that he’s not the same man after this contest. So he’s going to be in a shock when he sees that. That’s it.
In addition, McGregor also said he plans to retire Alvarez next week.
I see them break, bit by bit. And then we’re in the Octagon and I break them myself. So that’s it. I’m looking forward to going in. He’s claiming it’s an easier contest. I look forward to seeing the eyes, when the eyes roll, and the electric shock darts through his whole body and goes to his knees. And then he comes up in survival mode, and that panic sets through his whole body, his whole face. That’s something I’m looking forward to, and I will go out there and I will punish him for that, for those words that he’s saying. I’m going to retire him on this night.
UFC 205: Alvarez vs. McGregor will be held on November 12, 2016 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
