Press Conference Psychology: Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov

The first and maybe only UFC 229 press conference took place on Thursday Radio City Music Hall with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor squaring off for the first time in front of the media only event. Chael Sonnen gives his analysis of the psychology behind each fighter and their unique approach to promoting this potentially record-breaking fight.


  1. I think when he said “if you back out of this fight like you do every fight May god have mercy on your soul” was the craziest threat ever in mma. When you think about it, how much money Conor has, it’s a crazy threat

  2. Plus everytime Khabib tried to answer a question , Conor couldn’t keep his mouth shut .

  3. blah blah he tapped coz he wants to stop the bus genius.. we know how foul mcfggot's mouth is..

  4. Conor is scared .going to be an excellent fight either way.cheal your an idiot. Khabib does his talking in the octagon

  5. It was embarrassing and he was off his head on something

  6. Ffs, Chael! Khabib is a muslim and muslims don't drink alcohol! Did you not know that?? As for Conor, he crossed the line yesterday. He insulted Khabibs father, insulted russian people, insulted dagestani people, insulted Chechen leader etc. That is not a showmanship for me.

  7. Connor was nervous running off Dutch courage. Did not affect a focused Khabib.

  8. This is all cool and all, but i'd much rather like a follow up video on the "get in the hole" story. I NEED CLOSURE

  9. Is it possible i would disagree with my leader chael? That presser was cringe and Conor needs a new shtick

  10. Conor is "a man of his word"? Are you serious, Chael? Say that to all the people he said he'd defend any of his titles against.

  11. Why you lie to make conor look good ? Khabib never said " we will just do it again "

  12. I commented on a different video about how terrible Conor was. He came off looking insane. Oh how wrong I was. I watched the whole thing. This presser was the best I've EVER seen. I was hypnotized. Conor may not have planned it this way but- it was SO intense that I couldn't keep my eyes off either one of them. Maybe Conor did plan it this way. WOW!!

    P.S I'm a big fan of khabibs

  13. Actually If u watched the bus video Conor tapped the window more ruthlessly than khabib lol

  14. To be fair to Khabib I think English is Khabibs 3rd or 4th language… he really wasnt in a position to do much let alone understand it.

  15. The reason Conor was so nasty this time is that it isn't easy to get to a man like khabib and he said exactly what would make a man like him mad so he will over commit in the fight and Conor can catch him on the chin like he did to all of his other top level opponents.
