Conor McGregor was recently in studio on BT Sport for ‘Beyond the Octagon’, with Gareth A Davies acting as the moderator and host.
During McGregor’s in-studio appearance, the number one contender in the UFC’s Featherweight division, Chad Mendes called in via Skype. Mendes, who will be meeting UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 179, had some words for McGregor.
The talk between the two began lightheartedly, with talk about the difference in height; then Mendes would go on to ask McGregor: “Conor, do you know what wrestling is?”
To that McGregor replied: “I could rest my balls on your forehead.”
McGregor’s remark caused an uproar of laughter within the crowd, and from there the trash talk would commence and things got a bit heated towards the end of the segment.
