“When I was a kid, to be able to defend myself in an unarmed combat situation.”
“None, but I take inspiration from everyone and everything. I’m inspired by current champions, former champions, true competitors, people dedicated to their dream, hard workers, dreamers, believers, achievers.” said McGregor when asked if he had any career inspirations.
No one ever knows what’s next for Conor. After cashing in nearly $100 million dollars for his boxing mega fight with Floyd Mayweather, the UFC lightweight champion has been staying quiet as to his next move.
McGregor’s still been making noise in the media with the chaos he caused at a Bellator event in Dublin, and the reports of him beating up an Irish mob associate at a local pub.
