When Conor McGregor Had Something Thrown At Him During A Press Conference

When Conor McGregor Had Something Thrown At Him During A Press Conference

An angry Dagestani fan appeared to throw a shoe or a bottle at Conor McGregor as the Irish fighter addressed reporters in The Ritz Hotel, Moscow back in October.

The 31-year-old launched a verbal attack on lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, which seemingly sparked the backstage incident.

Someone at the press conference referenced the Irishman's previous comments about people from Dagestan, where Khabib is from, being cowards and the man can be heard asking 'me, my people and my father are cowards?' before launching the object.

McGregor then responded to the fan, saying: "Shut up, you fool" as he was ushered away by security.

McGregor had kind words for Russia and its people, but was far from complementary about his long term rival.

He accused Nurmagomedov of running and hiding from a Moscow showdown while aiming numerous digs at the undefeated Dagestan fighter.

Khabib Nurmagomedov Reveals What Conor McGregor Said To Him During Their UFC 229 Clash

"Where's my location? The Ritz Carlton." he said. "I'm in the Ritz Carlton if anyone wants my location, right in downtown Moscow. Where is he right now? I believe he's out of the country. I fly in, he flies out. Typical of the Dagestani man."

He then aimed a dig at Dagestan when asked if he'd visited the area. "I wouldn't go to Dagestan to take a s**t. And that is the truth."

The pair's rivalry ahead of their meeting in October 2018 was possibly the most heated in UFC history and there is clearly a pure hatred between them.

Things got really personal between McGregor, Khabib and even Khabib's manager in the build up and it boiled over post fight when the Eagle jumped into the crowd and two members of his team got into the octagon.

McGregor's comeback announcement last October led to the fight with Donald Cerrone, that didn't even last a minute, and he's now awaiting his next opponent.

Khabib is expected to fight Justin Gaethje as his next opponent, sometime in the near future. The American beat Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 for the interim lightweight title and will look to become the undisputed champion whenever he takes on The Eagle.

Many have called for the McGregor vs Khabib rematch at some point but the Russian's camp haven't been too keen, claiming the Notorious needs to win 10 fights in-a-row to earn another shot.
