During a wild appearance on BT Sports’ “Beyond The Octagon” program, originally designed to promote Saturday’s UFC 179 pay-per-view, where Jose Aldo defends his UFC Featherweight Championship against Chad Mendes in Brazil, “The Notorious” Conor McGregor hit the scene and things got ugly.
McGregor told the number one ranked Featherweight contender Mendes, “I can rest my balls on your forehead.” Mendes didn’t back down in the game of verbal jousting, however, firing back at the Irishman by telling him that when he looks at him, all he sees are “dollar signs in my bank account.”
