Urijah Faber Calls Out Conor McGregor For Not Showing Up To TUF Practice

Conor McGregor's stint as the coach of Team Europe on season 22 of UFC's "The Ultimate Fighter" has largely been about Conor McGregor. We're not complaining -- he's incredibly entertaining and it's great television watching the lightweight champ call Team USA coach Urijah Faber "a 50-year-old retired skateboarder." McGregor gets exemplary marks for his shit-talking on the show.
As far as being an effective instructor is concerned, however, "The Notorious" appears to be getting an incomplete. Wednesday night, Faber let him know he's a deadbeat coach.
"You do need to show up for morning practice, though," Faber told McGregor, who was dressed like a Greek hedge fund manager when everyone else was wearing UFC gear. The visual contrast spoke volumes about McGregor's commitment to the show.
"Listen, world champions don't need their hands hit," he replied, echoing the tone of a cocky high school quarterback telling the principle he doesn't need to go to class because he's already got a scholarship to state. "My approach is to focus on my own journey and I'm dominating the game."
Can't argue with that.
