The UFC have released a video looking back on the most memorable moments of trash talk in 2016 and it is no surprise to see Conor

McGregor featuring heavily in the tirade of abusive exchanges.

Irish hero McGregor became a two-weight world champions over the course of the last year, with his wins against Nate Diaz and Eddie Alvarez cementing his status as the biggest name in UFC.

Of course, McGregor’s banter out of the octagon is almost as entertaining as his talents when he goes into battle and this clip of classic one-liners confirms as much.

With the bleeps in all he right places to make sure no-one is offended, here are McGregor’s (and the other lads and ladies who make up the numbers in UFC!) best bits of the year.
