UFC megastar Conor McGregor recently sat down with UFC correspondent Megan Olivi for an in-depth interview. During the interaction, Olivi brought up that daughter of legendary fighter Muhammad Ali has gone on to become a large fan of “Notorious.”
Beyond that, the boxer’s daughter has gone on to compare McGregor’s skills to that of the legend. In response, however, McGregor was quick to shrug off the comparison.
“I appreciate that. I always appreciate the comparison but I’m quick to say that I am not anywhere close to Muhammad Ali.
“That was a special man. I am just a simple young kid from Crumlin, Dublin, Ireland and I’m here looking for a fight.”
