Conor With Old UFC Owner, Pledges Allegiance To Fertitta, Says No One Can Stop Him

UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor appears to be enjoying his time in Las Vegas.

On Wednesday, McGregor posted a photo on his Instagram of himself and Lorenzo Fertitta at an art gallery.

In his caption, McGregor shared some insight on his future.

“I came up under Lorenzo Fertitta and the Fertitta regime. Nobody in the history of the fight game has come up as fast and as young as I have. I now, at 28 years of age, have my eyes firmly set on the ‘highest paid fighter’ and ‘highest earning athlete’ accolades. Understand and respect what you are witnessing here. Because not one of you can do nothing to stop it.”

McGregor is visiting Las Vegas in order to talk to the Nevada Athletic Commission and the UFC.

On Tuesday, McGregor met with the commission to discuss his water bottle throwing incident with Nate Diaz back in August. He is attempting to clear up that situation in order to obtain a boxing license. Once he receives a boxing license, McGregor can then pursue a boxing match against Floyd “Money” Mayweather in Las Vegas.

A potential fight against Mayweather could be the highest grossing combat sporting event in history. Win or lose, a fight against Mayweather would help McGregor achieve his goals of being not only the highest paid fighter but also the highest earning athlete.
