When someone asks something from Conor McGregor, 99% of the time they won't get what they wanted.

Of course, when fans ask for entertainment, that's a guarantee from Notorious, but when Eddie Alvarez asked for an apology from the Irishman, he was never going to get one.

The two went face-to-face last night during the UFC 205 press conference and as usual things got rather heated between the two champions.

At one point, McGregor was threatening to throw a chair in the direction of Alvarez, only to be stopped by president Dana White, who did an incredible job at controlling the heated Irishman.

After the two had settled down and the temperature had cooled a little bit, the press conference resumed and questions were started to be asked for the champions.

One question, which was aimed at Alvarez, was whether or not a win is good enough for him, or if he wants to be sending a specific statement.

Alvarez's response was: "No, I came for an apology from him. I want an apology from him for saying my wife and kids."

So not only does Alvarez want to beat McGregor, he also wants an apology from him.

Sadly, however, the American didn't get his apology on the day and it doesn't look like he will get one in the near future either.

McGregor simply responded with: "Suck these big, Irish b****"

A response that got a great reaction from the crowd, but not a great reaction from Alvarez, who insisted he would then make Notorious beg if he didn't apologise.

To which then McGregor said: "These big, Irish b**** all in your face."

Not quite the apology Alvarez was looking for.
