Once you leave a bad impression with UFC president Dana White, you don’t typically get a lot of second chances. Well, unless maybe you’re Conor McGregor.

“Big mouth” took the fight and continued to talk smack through it, the same way that he did on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. He still put on a good fight, however, and left and indelible impression on White in his second chance in the Octagon.
