Last night UFC superstar Conor McGregor had some sort of Conor-centric stroke session where fans in Manchester, England, paid to watch him get interviewed by Ariel Helwani. It was… interesting, to put it mildly.
But chief among what McGregor said – and he said a lot – was how he believes he can make the mythical fighter against boxing star Floyd Mayweather happen without the UFC.
As per MMAJunkie:
“I believe I can (make this without the UFC), but I think it’s smoother if we’re all involved,” McGregor said. “We’re all about good business. I’ve done great business with the UFC, with Dana, with everyone. I think it’s smoother if everyone gets together to get involved, but then again, everyone has got to know their place. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. There’s Mayweather Promotions, there’s the UFC, and now there’s the newly formed McGregor Promotions, and we’re all in the mix. Nobody is my boss.”
Delusion is a sad thing, folks. Don’t let it happen to you.
