Ahead of Conor McGregor’s headlining performance at Saturday’s UFC 196, “Mystic Mac” has been making the media rounds – not the least of which is an appearance with late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien.
It’s always pretty standard operating procedure for these appearances (no matter who the fighter is) to consist of the host showing tons of respect (if not outright fear) for the fighter in question’s skills. Conan is no different. When McGregor demonstrates a spinning Capoeira kick that he might use against opponent Nate Diaz, Conan repeatedly says how he himself would be killed when faced with such a technique.
It’s all in good fun though, and at the end of it you have to think how at ease McGregor is in front of the cameras.
