It seems Liam Neeson has hit that age where he’s just going to say whatever he wants.
In a recent interview with Men’s Health, he was asked about the UFC… not sure why you’d ask Neeson about the UFC, but they did and he replied: “UFC, I can’t stand. That, to me, is like a bar fight. And I know practitioners are always like, ‘No, you’re wrong! The amount of training we do!’ Why don’t you just grab a beer bottle and hit the other guy over the head? That’s the next stage from UFC! I f—ing hate it.”
Neeson continued on, talking about fellow Irishman Conor McGregor. “That little leprechaun, Conor McGregor, oh, please. He gives Ireland a bad name. I know he’s fit, and I admire him for that, but can’t take it. Next time I come in a Dublin Airport, ‘Neeson! We’ll f—ing show you!’”
Did Neeson just call out McGregor? For his part, McGregor posted the following tweet in response:
Irish proud – always. 🇮🇪
