UFC 189 Video: Faber: Conor McGregor 'felt like a junior high girl when I grabbed him' during scuffle

New, comments

Urijah Faber says Conor McGregor looked like a crackhead, and felt like a junior high girl during their scuffle at the UFC 189 weigh-ins.

During the UFC 189 weigh-in day, Conor McGregor had a run in with Chad Mendes' teammate in Urijah Faber. After a bit of taunting, the two got in a bit of a scuffle back stage (video here). Footage has since been released of McGregor saying that he 'could've dumped him on his head' with a double leg, and now Faber has also spoken about the incident as well.

"Okay, so what happened was I was in the bathroom, and somebody was trying to get in. I open the bathroom stall and McGregor was standing there, and we're face to face. Then, so you saw the video," Faber explained on a recent periscope session. "It was super random, just on the back hallway and there just happened to be a camera crew there."

"Trying to pick on the guy who was cutting weight, but dude looked like a crackhead, man," he continued. "He felt like a junior high girl when I grabbed him, to be honest. But I know he's been cutting a lot of weight and he'll be bigger tomorrow, but he's not going to be enough for Chad."

UFC 189 is upon us, and Mendes and McGregor will finally get to go at it in just a couple of hours.
