In case you haven’t heard, Conor McGregor is fighting next weekend. Sure, featherweight champ Jose Aldo is fighting too, as is middleweight champ Chris Weidman and middleweight challenger Luke Rockhold, and the event is UFC 194 – one of three UFCs next week – but all of that stuff is irrelevant. Because Conor McGregor is fighting, and that’s just one notch (barely) below the Second Coming of Christ.
As part of his duties as King of the World, McGregor is in full-on media junket mode. He admittedly excels at this media stuff – I mean, it’s because of him that people actually give a crap that Aldo is fighting at all.
Below are clips of his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. It’s all softball stuff, but it’s cool to see McGregor interact with some animation with the non-MMA media.
