Conor McGregor made a valiant effort at the 'cúpla focal' in a press conference interview with RTE's Nuacht.

When questioned by RTE in the Irish language, Conor wasn't about to give up without a fight. (Excuse the pun).

As Gaeilge, he told the interviewer "I'm fantastic, thanks" before telling her what he was going to do to Jose Aldo in the fight, which translates as 'I will hit him in the head with my foot'.

He then ended the interview with a famous Irish joke, adding 'An bhfuil céad agam dul go dtí an leithreas?', (which means 'Can I go to the bathroom'), to the laughter of the surrounding fans and media.

You know what they say, Conor, 'Gaeilge briste níos fearr na Bearla cliste!'
