Today at 5PM/2PM ETPT, the headliners of the biggest show of 2016, UFC 205, will speak with the media via conference call to discuss their upcoming bout and exchange a few verbal jabs before fight week.
UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez and UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor take the stage for today’s call, which is scheduled to begin at 5PM EST.
The two men answered questions from multiple media outlets throughout the conference call. As expected, it didn’t take very long for Conor McGregor to get excited and drop some memorable quotes about his opponent Eddie Alvarez. Never backing down from a fight in the Octagon or on the microphone, Alvarez more than held his own against McGregor and responded throughout the call with great lines of his own.
Both men would share moments of giving credit to their opponent throughout the call; brief gestures of respect before opening up to harsher statements:
“Eddie’s tough, he’s durable, I’ll give him that. He’s been through war after war. His chin is banged up. If he can last…I don’t believe he will be able to withstand the barrage of strikes. If he can last, I’ll give him respect, but this is the McGregor show. He will be dismantled and put away, and that will be it.” – Conor McGregor
“He has good striking. His striking is well. His defense is TERRIBLE! Terrible defense! Might be the worst in the division. So, if he even thinks about wrestling, if he even thinks about it before I even get started on wrestling him, I may just knock him the fuck out before that.” – Eddie Alvarez
The two men would go on to exchange harsher words throughout the call, with McGregor ultimately stating he would retire Alvarez at UFC 205.
“I feel they’re going to see something they haven’t seen before. I’m going to toy with this man. Truly rearrange his facial structure. His wife and kids won’t recognize him.” – Conor McGregor
The Lightweight Champion was amused by the comments of McGregor, as he mostly laughed off the claims by the Featherweight Champion.
“(laughing) This guy must be drinking coffee or something, he’s getting excited.” – Eddie Alvarez
Alvarez opted for quick, strong replies to Conor’s predictions about the fight, making his voice heard in slightly different manner.
“…I’m going to rip you apart,” Conor Mcgregor stated.
“You ain’t rippin’ shit up,” Eddie Alvarez flatly replied.
