Just days before Conor McGregor returns to the Octagon to face Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246, the Irish fighter sat down to react to his press conference highlights.

Breaking down why they call him “The Notorious,” McGregor touched on his thoughts and feelings towards some of the memorable moments and quotes that have helped propel his combat sports career. Widely regarded as one of the best trash talkers in the UFC and sports entertainment, McGregor revealed that he doesn’t really put much thought into what he says during press conferences and usually just tries to “have a bit of fun with it.”

Fun was definitely the definition of what Conor McGregor had at the press conference for UFC 205 when he pretended to not know who Featherweight fighter Jeremy Stephens was after being called out. The moment stands as a fan favorite and features a blue pinstripe suit that “The Notorious” really likes. Another classic moment was at the UFC Go Big press conference, where McGregor began playing with the idea that he was the “money fight” and that fighters would be having a “red panty night” when they are offered the fight against him.

McGregor also talked about how some mental warfare helped him take José Aldo’s belt at UFC 189 World Tour – Dublin press conference and come out on top at the press conference for UFC 196 with Nate Diaz. Finally, McGregor touched on the moment that started it all, discussing a public spat he had with “Cowboy” back in 2015.

In case you missed it, Conor McGregor recently revealed he wants a rematch with Floyd Mayweather and there have been talks of a fight with Manny Pacquiao.
