There were a lot of things said in the build-up to UFC 194. Conor McGregor was bullish, Aldo was bullish, and countless proclamations, promises and predictions were made. But UFC welterweight fighter Joe Riggs said probably the most ridiculous thing.
When the UFC asked other fighters to predict who would win between Aldo and McGregor, the welterweight fighter wasn't pleased that McGregor was even being given the fight:
If Chad had had a full training camp, he would have f*cking killed him. It makes me sick that the guy who's considered the pound-for-pound best fighter on the planet and he's the underdog against this guy who's fucking nothing.
If he beats him, I'll fucking cut my own dick off and throw it away.
Of course, twitter wasn't slow to remain Riggs of his promise:
