Liam Neeson didn’t mince words when recently asked about the UFC.
In a Q&A style interview with Men’s Health, a reader asked the actor how he feels about the sport.
«UFC, I can’t take it,» Neeson said. «That, to me, is like a bar fight. And I know practitioners always say, ‘No, you’re wrong! The amount of training we do!’ Why don’t you grab a beer bottle and hit the other guy over the head? That’s the next stage of the UFC! I hate it.»

«That little leprechaun, Conor McGregor, please. He gives Ireland a bad name,» Neeson said. «I know he’s fit and I admire him for it, but I can’t stand it. Next time I come into a Dublin airport, ‘Neeson! We’ll show you!'»
McGregor is preparing to enter Neeson’s world, starring opposite Jake Gyllenhal in a new version of «Road House.»
McGregor, 34, will play an original character, not himself.
