McGregor was fashionably late

Khabib Nurmagomedov was not going to wait Thursday. Conor McGregor was not at the scheduled press conference for UFC 229 when he was supposed to be.  

Khabib Nurmagomedov was the only fighter on stage.

White was not overly concerned with McGregor's late arrival after Nurmagomedov had already left.

When McGregor did arrive, he received a standing ovation from the crowd at the Park Theater and handed White a bottle of his new signature whiskey.

"[Nurmagomedov] knew what he f---ing signed up for. I've been later than this," McGregor said. "The traffic is a little heavy. There must be a McGregor fight going on. I don't know where he is. He's better off running anyway. ... He didn't say anything the last time. Whatever. It is what it is."

"I did not plan this," McGregor added. "I tried to get here. I'm only a couple minutes late. ... He doesn't want to be around me. He doesn't want to be around these people. He is petrified."

Then McGregor decided to drop some craziness when he spoke. 

I'm pretty excited for this fight!
