Video: Yesterday’s UFC 196 Press Conference, In All It’s Profanity-Laced Beauty


(via the UFC.)

It wouldn’t take a genius to predict that a mic battle between¬†Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz would be entertaining from start to finish, but I don’t think that any of us could have predicted how balls-to-the-wall bonkers yesterday’s UFC 196 press conference ended up being. Both Ireland and Stockton were represented in full, and the result was a conference that felt less like a media day and more like a Def Jam comedy special. A few choice pull quotes:

McGregor: “I like Nick’s little bro. He’s like a little cholo gangster from the hood, but at the same time, he coaches kids Jiu Jitsu on Sunday morning and goes on bike rides with the elderly. He makes gang signs with the right hand and animal balloons with the left.”

Diaz: “Fuck you.” (this was the majority of Diaz’s trash talk)

Diaz: “You fight midgets.”

McGregor: “Most people, when they get that red panty night, they ring home to their wife, ‘Baby we did it!’ Nate rings Nick, ‘Baby, we did it!’”

Check out a handful of highlights from the conference above, then head after the jump for the whole affair.

The belt aside, it would be safe to say that UFC 196 has arguably become more popular since Diaz agreed to face McGregor. This press conference peaked at 361,000 viewers for Christ’s sake; that’s better¬†ratings than 23 previous WSOF broadcasts on NBC SN. For a press conference. On a Tuesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Anderson Silva is fighting this weekend and no one gives a fuck. The power of Mystic Mac, ladies and gentlemen.
