UFC fighter Urijah Faber says all the men of Ireland are "pretty mangled looking"
Hang on a second, buddy.
Urijah Faber's featherweight fight against Frankie Edgar is the headliner for UFC Fight Night 65 in May.
Faber was talking about the fight on the recent episode of Team Alpha Male Radio, and they ended up talking about the UFC's rising star Conor McGregor.
Faber started out pretty complimentary: “I think it’s fun, this sport needs guys like Conor. Conor’s not just a talker he’s a great fighter. He’s a guy that backs up what he says and he’s making headlines."
But then he moved onto Irish people, and made a pretty silly generalisation about Irish men: "I’ve seen some hot Irish women but all the dudes over there are pretty mangled looking.
"Conor, just not having freckles and bright red hair makes him like a super male model over there.
"The ability to not have a face full of freckles and red hair steps his game up tremendously in Ireland. They’ve got a hero and he’s good."
Faber is clearly trying to raise his profile by getting involved with McGregor, it'll be interesting to see if the Notorious responds.
By the way lads, you are all beautiful. Don't mind him.
Hat-tip to @stephenl15 for the heads up.
