We're all facing - I'm sure all the Irish people here - are facing all this immigration stuff on the way over (to America). and then you've got this man with such a insane background. and he's walking around free. He doesn't want to be around me, he doesn't want to be around these people. Why I have to worry about him?
"I could go into heavy detail. and I will!"
The man tasked with the job of welcoming "The Notorious" back to the mixed martial arts world will be his successor at the summit of the lightweight division, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor was filmed hurling a dolly through a window of a bus carrying Nurmagomedov and other fighters as it moved through a loading dock at the venue.
"I am starving for this man's head", he said.
McGregor was allegedly trying to get at UFC 223 main event fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov because the Russian had been involved in a hotel altercation with fellow fighter and friend Artem Lobov.
"How do I come here if I don't believe in myself?" He doesn't want to be around these people.
McGregor had previously targeted Abdelaziz during a UFC 299 promotional event last month in NY, yelling, "You terrorist snitch!" at the Egypt native. "If somebody is late that's his problem".
"It's good to be back", said McGregor, who hasn't fought since losing to Mayweather 14 months ago in a boxing match where he was badly outclassed.
That drew the ire of McGregor, who went after Nurmagoedov and his trainer. He expressed his preference for face-offs to take place after the weigh-ins, saying that is "the one I'm interested in". For me, it's personal.
While many fans will justly point to Chad Mendes' short training camp for the loss, there is no question that Conor McGregor proved that he is capable of fighting through adversity in his bout with "Money". I'm gonna change this Saturday night. You just steam yourself in that sauna and soak you f--ing Dagestani rat. I have to go make weight.
Although Nurmagomedov enters the event as champion, McGregor had the belt prior to him and never was dethroned inside the octagon. I always say you should aim for peace but if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes.
White jogged behind the lightweight champion to begin the presser, explaining that there was supposed to be a video played before the press conference began, and McGregor was in a auto on his way to the venue. "This is never over; never, ever, ever over".
The final press conference ahead of UFC 229 was an unusual affair at the best of times, but it got odd when the Irishman went after opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager in a wild rant.
