Conor McGregor is a man you would not want to cross on a normal day. If you are P Diddy however, you may want to keep an extra bit of distance from the UFC star.
One of the quickest rising prospects in the UFC, McGregor, who dominated Diego Brandao in UFC Fight Night 45’s headliner this past month, was a recent guest on “The Late, Late Show” in his native Ireland with host Ryan Tubridy.
Up his own Arse
Although the conservation focused heavily on his big win, which was a sellout event, and the UFC, the talismanic fighter shared a story about a recent meeting with Diddy.
The conversation wasn't exactly complimentary to the rapper/producer/actor, and McGregor said that he was "a bit up his own arse" and that he was incredibly tempted to deliver a crisp left hook to Coombs jaw.
"He was a little up his own arse to be honest," McGregor recalls. "We were at this college football game UCLA… but he is, he barely shook my hand. I was going to give him a left!” he laughs. “This is LA, you just go around meeting people but P. Diddy is bottom of the list, especially after meeting him.”
