The World MMA Awards were held in Las Vegas on Friday night with Conor McGregor being named 'Fighter Of The Year'.
Due to McGregor's prep from his March 5th title fight with Rafael dos Anjos, he was not present to accept the accolade. Instead, he sent a pre-recorded acceptance speech.
The speech featured McGregor taking no prisoners, calling all fighters in the room 'bums'. He also aimed a specific jab at heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, who recently pulled out of a title fight due to be held this weekend.
There's another man that must be slayed, another champion that must be dethroned. There's more numbers that need to be broken. I need to feed all you bums. I need to feed every one you in the game so I've got to keep working because you's bums don't work.
You've got the heavyweight champion who's a pussy pulling out with a sore toe. How's the heavyweight champion going to pull out with a sore toe? What kind of champion is that?
The game is on its knees. I apologise that I can't be there at the awards but I'm out here putting it in, working, putting in the true work.
The work it takes to keep every one of you fed. So thank you and thank me.
