It certainly is Conor McGregor season as his eagerly anticipated rematch with Nate Diaz is taking place in six days at UFC 202 in Las Vegas.
The charismatic Irishman - to put it mildly - has been grabbing all kinds of headlines with his trademark mouth in the weeks leading up to the fight.
For a man that pulled out of UFC 200 due to not wanting to fulfill his media obligations, he is certainly relishing them this time around.

This time, Mystic Mac has treated us to an amusing analogy to describe how he came up short against Diaz last time when he was submitted in the second round.
"You ever see that episode of The Simpsons where Homer starts boxing?" McGregor said. "He's competing, he's just sitting in the ring and getting the head slapped off him. Boom, boom, boom. And then just the guy can't punch him no more. And then Homer tips him and the guy falls over. That was similar.
"That's the way Nate was in that fight. He was like Homer Simpson. He just took the shots until I couldn't hit him no more. He's gonna be no different this fight. He's gonna just take the shots and hope that I can't hit him no more. Only, I'm gonna be still there poking him in the face. So, I look forward to it."
To be fair, the Notorious One did hit Diaz with all kinds of shots during their first encounter but he still couldn't put the seasoned fighter to bed.
At featherweight, chances are most fighters would have been dead and buried by some of those shots, but at welterweight, it is a different story.
McGregor will have a chance to put his words into practise next Saturday night.
