LIVE: Watch Conor McGregor and Rafael dos Anjos come face to face at UFC 197 press conference

There will be fireworks!

This is going to be absolute madness.

Conor McGregor’s press conferences always are. From the time he told Dustin Poirier he would ‘rip his pea-head clean off’ to the time he snatched Jose Aldo’s title belt from under his nose before UFC 194 you can guarantee fireworks. They’re almost more entertaining than his fights.

But that was before he became featherweight champion of the world – since that moment he dropped Aldo with a single punch his profile, and his ego, have gone stratospheric.

That’s why all eyes are going to be on the UFC 197 press conference on Wednesday night at 7pm.

It’s the first time McGregor has come face to face with lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos in the run up to this historic fight.

UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor

Dos Anjos, who said fighting the Irishman would be ‘easy money’, was on the receiving end of McGregor’s infamous ‘red panty night’ dig during the UFC’s ‘Go Big’ event last year.

But now the two men are actually facing each other for real, it’s a whole different ball game.

We all know how combative The Notorious can be and Dos Anjos has got Brazil and the rest of the McGregor-hating world behind him, so you just know it’s going to go off.

As an added bonus, Holly Holm and Miesha Tate are also going to be talking up their co-main event fight at UFC 194.
