Conor is the trash talker of all trash talkers. A YouTube compilation video of every time the Dubliner insulted the Brazilian during the promotion of this fight is a whopping 7:39 minutes long. When asked on a media conference call whether being in Brazil to watch Jose Aldo up close when he fought Chad Mendes in October 2014 gave him any more of an insight into the challenge he faces, McGregor answered as only he can, saying: “I looked at that fight ringside and I thought, wow this Chad Mendes hits like an animal; he is a dangerous, dangerous man. Then I went in with him and myself and realized he hits like a bitch. If anything, it showed me that these people aren’t on my level.”
This demonstrates his incredible self-belief and his incredible propensity to insult. That said, at every step in his UFC career, he has backed up his big talk with wins in the Octagon. If he does it again this weekend, then it will be some feat.
