It’s an innovative saying to say, but it really seems that McGregor did not leave.
A sea of McGregor lovers flooded the MGM Park on Thursday at their first press conference before fighting in the UFC since November 2016. Superstar Irish appeared about 25 minutes late. His delay prompted Normmgmadov to leave early, in favor of starting his weight reduction.
It’s not that McGregor misses him. When asked if he missed an opportunity to enter his opponent’s head, or if he had already done so, McGregor replied in figure.
“I do not really care about his mentality or what he thinks,” McGregor said. “I do not give a p — I’m here, I came to put a hole in the skull of this man.”
How can McGregor find his way in a bloody boxing match against Floyd Mayweather last summer? Due to promotional events such as Thursday and performances such as those promised on Saturday.
The MMA does not collapse without it, but it is impossible to ignore the presence it brings. The 155-pound section, which McGregor took to defeating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016, barely moved since the last battle, mainly due to early injuries and weight loss.
If he returns forever, that will change. He clearly said that if anything Nurmagomedov happened in the last 48 hours, he will find someone else to fight in the UFC 229, after “provoke” Nurmagomedov on Saturday, may feel as if UFC 231 address in the month Madison Square Garden.
“It’s another day,” McGregor said of the size of his return. “Put the tape high and throw it out of the garden.” “I plan to hit the nose of the man directly in the nose bleeding.”
