Dana White may sound bias, when he calls his fellow Irishmen the next most hype since Brock Lesnar, but he is undoubtedly right when considering that it is only Conor McGregor‘s second fight in the octagon, and yet he is on everyone’s radar.

[Is McGregor the most hyped UFC fighter?] “You’ve got that right,” said UFC president Dana White. “Other than Brock Lesnar.”

“I like real fighters. I like guys that want to win it and guys that want to finish and guys that just love to fight. That’s what I love about Conor. He’s a great kid, has got an awesome personality and loves to fight. He’s my kind of guy.” – Boston Herald

McGregor is scheduled to take on Max Holloway this Saturday (Aug. 17) in the preliminary bouts of UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen.
