    Do you feel He makes your country proud seeing as he has delivered all he has said he will or do you dislike his trash talk?

    I like the trashtalk because I see it for what it is, he is very confident in himself and he is successfully hyping up the fight.

    Look at when Nate starts saying "F*ck you" to Conor, around 1:30 on this video:



    Conor is just laughing along with it. He doesn't care what Nate is saying and really, Nate doesn't care what Conor is saying. Nate acted like he always acts.
    Irish people tend to slag each other a lot, hence why McGregor appears to be so good at it. To me, it just looks like a mate slagging another mate down the pub to be honest.

    My ancestors are Irish so I think this thread applies to me too. I like Conor as a fighter but everything he says is cringey.

    Hated him at first but he grew on me. Love his fights and think his pressers are entertaining. Loads of respect for what he's doing and his ability.

    But

    I still think he's a bit of fuckin eejit. And his fans at the Aldo/McGregor Q&A in Dublin before UFC189 made me and anyone I know who saw it, embarrassed to be Irish.

    How did you see his "slagging" of Jose Aldo? Didn't seem like a bit of friendly banter to me...

    Those pressers were very embarrassing. Those people are not MMA fans, they are McGregor fans. Don't hear a peep out of them if McGregors not fighting.
