It was just another day in the life of Conor McGregor yesterday as he once again stole the show at a UFC press conference.

With his fight against Eddie Alvarez just one day away, The Notorious once again did his best to sell the show, and this time around, it was attempting to throw a chair at his opponent.

You will remember correctly that during his press conference ahead of the Nate Diaz fight, McGregor launched water bottles across the room, which eventually cost him $75,000.

Despite having the chair in his arms, McGregor didn't end up throwing it at Alvarez and was instead restrained by Dana White.

The berserk McGregor wasn't the only talking point from the press conference, however, as his bizarre attire was also a talking point.

The Irishman turned up to the press conference wearing a red turtleneck and a white mink coat.

Of course, when you are Conor McGregor, you can wear whatever you like, but the champ did have a reason behind his unusual attire.

McGregor's outfit for the UFC 205 press conference was inspired by boxer Joe Frazier.

Frazier wore a similar outfit for his press conference against Muhammad Ali ahead of their fight at Madison Square Garden back in 1974.

There could be numerous reasons behind McGregor's decision to wear a similar outfit, but one of the main ones could be the fact the Notorious is set to break the Madison Square Garden attendance record, which was previously held by Ali and Frazier.

Although the combo was probably in fashion back in 1974, McGregor still managed to pull it off in 2016.
