McGregor’s featherweight rivals: pea head, two bores and Hans Moleman.

CONOR MCGREOR TALKING trash about an opponent is the least surprising thing in the world, but this clip from his upcoming interview on Setanta Sports this Wednesday is still pretty great. He tears down his featherweight rivals in hilarious fashion and he even has a Rafa Benitez, “These are the facts” moment.

There was something about how he talks about Dustin Poirier’s head shape that gets me every time and the Hans Moleman stuff was good too. Here is Cub Swanson, who looks like the eldery character from the Simpsons according to McGregor.
