People Were Loving This Cheeky Reporter's Sick Burn On Conor McGregor Yesterday

Conor McGregor is well used to being followed by a gaggle of journalists everywhere he goes and more often than not he's more than willing to provide them with sharp one-liner which they can stick in their headlines.

Yesterday though, the shoe was on the other foot when the UFC star emerged from his appearance at Blanchardstown District Court. While heading back towards his car and batting away questions from journos, Conor went into full 'change-the-subject' mode by pointing at his car and exclaiming "look at that motor, what a motor!"

RTÉ's Paul Reynolds pulled off his best cutting McGregor impression by hitting back, quick as a flash, with "it's only a 1.5, Conor!"

Check out the funny moment at the 0.16 second mark of the video below...

Conor could only meekly respond with "yeah but it's a rocket ship" and it's fair to say Reynolds' sharp wit was appreciated...

Can we get some Savlon for that burn?
