Testicles theme continues as Conor McGregor tells Eddie Alvarez to 's*ck these big Irish b*lls'

Testicles theme continues as Conor McGregor tells Eddie Alvarez to 's*ck these big Irish b*lls'

Tension was rife at the UFC 205 pre-fight press conference last night after Conor McGregor had to be dragged off stage before the trash talk was taken to another level.

Having made an explosive late entrance to the press conference, in which he stole Alvarez's belt before being removed from the stage, the Notorious proved himself to be at the top of his trash-talking game in New York yesterday evening.

Alvarez was asked by UFC president Dana White if a win was enough for him when he takes on the Dublin fighter in the octagon tomorrow night.

The American stated that he required an "apology" from McGregor - seemingly for comments made by the Crumlin man about how Alvarez's wife and kids wouldn't be able to recognise him after the lightweight title fight.

The Irish UFC star responded in typical fashion:

This continues the 'testicles theme' that seems to have been running throughout McGregor's public appearances and interviews during fight week.

Speaking to BT Sport just ahead of the results of the US Presidential Election, the Notorious declared that he "couldn't give a bollocks" about Donald Trump.

The Dubliner then credited his "big ballsack" for his ability to sink a three-pointer in Madison Square Garden following his open workout at the UFC 205 venue.

The Notorious will get a shot at history when he takes on lightweight champion Alvarez in New York tomorrow, with the main card starting at 3am Irish time on November 13.

A win over Alvarez will make McGregor the first man to hold two UFC belts at the same time.

After announcing the fight, Dana White confirmed that McGregor would keep his featherweight belt which he won against Jose Aldo in December 2015.

Back in March, McGregor was due to fight Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 but the then-champion pulled out through injury.

Alvarez then beat Dos Anjos in July to take the title.

Khabib Nurmagomedov had signed a deal to fight the champion at UFC 205 or 206 but it looks like the prospect of McGregor was too tempting for Alvarez.

Also on the card is welterweight champ Tyron Woodley taking on Stephen Thompson.
