Josh Cohen, popularly known as the 'Pink Suit Guy', has roasted a couple of UFC stars quite brutally from behind the mic. A recent example of this kind came when he owned Conor McGregor in the UFC 264 pre-fight media presser.

Cohen asked McGregor, who was coming off a TKO loss against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, why people should expect him to win the trilogy. The way the reporter posed the question to Conor McGregor reeked of mockery. It certainly rubbed the 'The Notorious' the wrong way, who burst into a fit of rage and started hurling insults and threats at Cohen.

Josh Cohen asked Conor McGregor:

"Conor [McGregor], question for you. you have won exactly one fight since Barack Obama was president... over a fighter [Donald Cerrone] who has zero wins over the last six fights. This man [Dustin Poirier] sent you to a place where time doesn't exist six months ago. Why should anyone expect anything different on Saturday?"

#3. Josh Cohen vs. Colby Covington at UFC 268 press conference

Josh Cohen's most recent hot moment came when he roasted Colby Covington ahead of the latter's rematch with UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 268. The UFC reporter asked Covington whether he would let an independent medical team look at his X-ray reports to confirm if Usman had left him with a broken jaw following their UFC 245 fight.

The insinuation led to a whole verbal altercation between 'Chaos' and Cohen. Cohen asked Covington:

"...In two days, you [Colby Covington] get a chance to step inside that cage and they will the lock door and you will attempt to take that belt violently from that man [Kamaru Usman] by any means necessary. My question to you is, if you were to somehow lose this fight, will you allow an independent medical team to look at your X-rays from 2019 to determine once and for all, that man broke your face?"

As expected, Covington got all riled up and started insulting the 'Pink Suit Guy', making comments about his clothing and saying he looked like "a bottle of Pepto-Bismol."
