Conor McGregor once left speechless after Eddie Alvarez questioned manhood for 'taking money from single mums'
IT takes a lot to leave Conor McGregor speechless but Eddie Alvarez is one rival who managed to stun the Notorious.
Fans have heard a lot from the MMA icon in recent weeks ahead of his mega showdown with Dustin Poirier.
But the build-up between the fighters has been fairly amicable in comparison to his slagging match with Alvarez.
The pair duelled for the UFC Lightweight Championship in 2016.
Heading into the contest, Philadelphia puncher Alvarez decided to take umbrage with a well-known factor of McGregor's past.
The Irishman collected welfare benefits as he started out in MMA while also training as an apprentice plumber.
For Alvarez, this was akin to 'taking money from single mums'.
He declared in a pre-fight press conference: "You were on welfare brah.
"You ain’t no man, you took welfare.
"Don’t you talk about money, you took money from single mums, single mums go on welfare.
"Don’t talk about money. Keep your mouth shut when you talk about money."
McGregor had shown up to the chat in a Rolls Royce and dressed in a Gucci mink coat, stating that he was UFC's cash cow, but was left speechless by the tirade.
And he had the last laugh by downing Alvarez in a second-round TKO in the octagon.
That made him UFC's lightweight champion, a title that he will no doubt be eyeing once again if he can overcome Poirier in Abu Dhabi.
