conor mcgregor vs chad mendes ufc 189

1. Balls on Chad Mendes’ forehead

Long before McGregor and Chad Mendes were set to fight at UFC 189, they had a very well publicized beef in the lead up to ‘Money’s’ rematch with Jose Aldo at UFC 179. It was pretty much a straight lead in to McGregor challenging the winner of the fight, or at least the common consensus was that, and ‘The Notorious’ made good use of a media call with Mendes in the meantime.

In a moment that will perhaps never get topped by the Irish star, he used his quick wit and even quicker sense of humour to demolish Chad Mendes in this instant classic:

Mendes: Conor is a big talker. Conor brought so much attention to this division, so much attention to the UFC. He talked his way all the way up to the top. When I look at Conor I see dollar signs in my bank account. You know, Conor I match up horrible for this guy. Conor, do you know what wrestling is?

McGregor: I can rest my balls on your forehead
