Conor McGregor Would 'Slap The Head Off' A Killer Clown
Conor McGregor ain't got no time for clowns. Especially killer clowns. The craze which swept the nation in 2016 appears to be back.
McGregor hollered some typically hilarious soundbites when we asked him about killer clowns.
"Yeah I've seen people are dressing up as clowns. If one was coming towards me, I'd slap the head off of one," he said exclusively to SPORTbible.
"I mean, you see one of them jumping out and screaming in your face dressed up in a clown mask, I'd slap his head, pull the mask off and stick it up his arse.
"What even is that, but it's f**ked up."
A number of reports of clowns, often carrying knives or other weapons, were reported back in 2016, prompting police in Manchester to release a statement warning people what to do if they should see one.
Assistant Chief Constable Catherine Hankinson of Greater Manchester Police said: "It's important to stress that no-one has been physically harmed and I want to reassure people that we take reports of this nature extremely seriously.
"But if you do see any individuals dressed as clowns, you should try and keep calm and report the incident to authorities."
A few years removed from the first traces of clowns attacking people, it's resurfaced in Joyden's Wood, near Dartford in Kent.

Two boys have told police they were chased by a man dressed as a clown who shouted 'run or die', while 'holding a knife'.
When the boys returned home and told their parents, the cops were called and a police car was sent to the area to see if the man could be found.
A spokesperson from Kent Police told the Mirror: "We were called at 6.46pm on September 14 to a report of a person dressed as a clown in Tile Kiln Lane.
"Patrols in the area were advised of the incident but no person matching the description was seen."
Meanwhile, McGregor makes his anticipated return to the famed Octagon next month at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Irishman faces UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a fight tipped to be the biggest in the promotions history.
