The stuff he said about his chin is hilarious, and McGoober almost has that Anderson Silva aura before you step into the cage with him.
And if you guys watched the McGregor/Holloway fight, Holloway wasnt doing too bad in the striking with McGoober, but he would taunt the shit outta him and raise his arms, and got Holloway super tentative.
McGregor did completely outstrike him though, which is impressive considering Holloway is a very good striker himself. I think the stats were something like 60 to 30 strikes for McGregor. You could be right about the taunting, I haven't watched the fight in a while.
