The hastily arranged UFC 196 press conference for Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz yesterday turned out to be solid gold in the quote department and you can read the best of the zingers below.

“He’s like a little cholo gangster from the hood, but at the same time he coaches kids jiu jitsu on a Sunday morning, and goes on bike rides with the elderly. He makes gun signs with the right hand, and animal balloons with the left hand. You’re a credit to the community.” – McGregor

“Everybody does steroids. The whole UFC. Everybody.” – Diaz

“I’m not on steroids. I’m just an animal.” – McGregor

“I’m motivated by movement and money — and the movement of money.” – McGregor

“They gave me a fuck load of money and I said: ‘I want more of that shit!'” – Diaz

“Nate, congratulations. You’re rich now.” – McGregor

“Congratulations to you, mother fucker. I’m the show.” – Diaz

“I respect Nate. There are a lot of pussies in this game and he’s not one of them.” – McGregor

“I don’t care about the belt. All I care about is my checks and my checks are super heavy.” – McGregor

“It’s hard to commit to dos Anjos again. When you pull out with a bruise on the foot, there’s not much I can do.” – McGregor

“They all have sore vaginas lately. RDA broke his foot and his vagina in the same damn day. Same with Edgar.” – McGregor

“Nate and I have a similar will, but the skill doesn’t match the will and that’s the difference.” – McGregor

“The end of the first, I believe I will put him away.” – McGregor

“”You fight midgets. You knocked out three midgets, and you’re pumped-up. I’m a real motherf-cking fighter, fighting grown-ups, all the time.” – Diaz
