Current UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor recently hosted a private UFC 202 media day at his personal gym in Las Vegas to discuss his upcoming rematch with Nate Diaz on August 20.
At one point “Mystic Mac” was asked to address the recently failed USADA drug tests of former UFC champions Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar, which stemmed from UFC 200, and the Irish star did not hold back:
“I DON’T GIVE A SHIT,” SAID MCGREGOR WHEN ASKED WHETHER OR NOT JONES AND LESNAR SHOULD BE BANNED FROM UFC FOR LIFE. “YOU KNOW WHAT? F*CK THEM BOTH, TO BE HONEST. I DON’T KNOW THE STORIES, I DON’T KNOW THE INS AND OUTS, I’VE GOT MY OWN SH*T TO WORRY ABOUT. I WAS TAKEN FROM [UFC] 200 FOR THE CO-MAIN AND THE MAIN AND THEN BOTH OF THEM POPPED FOR SOME SH*T. DO WHAT YOU WANT. I DON’T GIVE A F*CK.”
Conor had been outspoken about his feelings towards Brock Lesnar in the past, however this was the first time that the Irish star had really said anything negative of former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
