UFC Dublin headliners Connor McGregor and Cole Miller were both guests on yesterday's MMA Hour. The war of words that ensued was as predictable as it was enjoyable. Here are some highlights via MMA Fighting.
"As soon as that man steps off the plane, he is stepping onto a battlefield," McGregor said. "He knows it, I know it. He opened his mouth. I didn't even give a s--t about him. Nobody in the UFC gave a s--t about him. 18 fights in the UFC, or 17, I don't even know, and the motherf--ker couldn't even get off Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg rang and tried to get that man off Facebook. Nobody cares about him.
"He opened his mouth, he should've kept quiet. There's a Celtic saying, ‘many a times a man's mouth broke his nose.' And this is one more of those sayings. That man opens his mouth, and I'm going to break his nose.""Man, he's talking about stopping me in the first round?" Miller replied. "I'm going to be the one that stops him in the first round. His jaw is going to be so weak from running his mouth, the first punch I'm going to hit with is going to lay him out."
"Cole, I'm going to break you," McGregor answered. "You're too slow. You're the slowest motherf**ker I've ever seen! You're the slowest in the division!"
"Dude, I've been slower than everybody I've ever fought," Miller shot back. "I win and I'm slower, I'm weaker, I'm not as agile. I don't have any of those gifts. I'm just better than everybody that I beat, and I'm going to be better than you."
UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Miller takes place in Dublin, Ireland on July 19.
