It took this UFC fighter a whole year to think of a comeback to Conor McGregor slagging him

Who is he though?

A post shared by Conor McGregor Official (@thenotoriousmma) on

IN SEPTEMBER OF 2016, Conor McGregor attended a press conference with a host of other fighters ahead of UFC 205.

At one point, he was interrupted by a fighter called Jeremy Stephens, who claimed he could give McGregor the ‘hardest fight out of anybody on stage’.

When he was finished, McGregor turned around and said:

Who the f**k is that guy?

The quip has become one of McGregor’s best-known lines, and has haunted Stephens ever since… but one year on, he’s finally gotten his own back. Kind of.

That’s Jeremy there, posing with McGregor’s mam, Margaret. Please note the hashtag:

However, it appears to be too little too late.

A year to come back with a ‘yer ma’ joke? Ah Jeremy. You tried.
