Watch: Conor McGregor Destroys Nate Diaz With Masterful 'Balloon Animal' Joke

Another spectacular Conor McGregor press conference went down on Wednesday night, as after a typically frustrating delay, we got to hear the Irishman and his opponent Nate Diaz tell each other what they thought about each other.

McGregor admitted that he respects Diaz for accepting the fight, claiming that there were a lot of 'pussies' in the UFC and that Nate wasn't one of them, but after McGregor took one or two comments to heart, he went to town on Nate's 'gangster' image by pointing out his work with kids and the elderly in a beautiful nugget of smack talk.


That was simply brilliant.

It's clear that there is a mutual respect under the talking, but these two still delivered one hell of an entertaining press conference and anticipation is now continuing to build at a rapid pace.

There will be fireworks.
