The former UFC champ champ Conor McGregor in a recent and rather candid interview revealed his future plans and that he wants to please the fans.
McGregor recently was in a long conversation with a popular sports media outlet, Bleacher Report. In the interview, he talked about he was now looking to win the fans’ hearts all over again and wanted to please them. He also went ahead and revealed his future plans. Here’s what he had to say:
I will admit that the fight before UFC 246, I did not train properly and was not in perfect condition, call it what you want. I am hungry today. Hungry like a man who has not eaten for weeks. … When I set my mind to something, there is nothing I can not accomplish. It is that power of belief that makes up the winners. I will simply say I was not fully prepared, It proves that anything can happen in the fight game. You can trust that I will not make the same mistakes next time. I came out well, and in an instant, things changed. It’s as simple as that. What the fans, and frankly the fighters, don’t want is a dull fight or a dull lead up to a fight, I enjoy every aspect, and the fans deserve to see and hear the real me. I am very passionate and eager to please the fans and win for them and my family. I am willing to fight anyone and have proved that time and time again. I look for a good scrap, and if it isn’t going to be that, I have no interest.
The money is not why I do this. I am a very rich man, and my children and those that come after them will be just fine. I love the fight game. I learned many things boxing in Crumlin where I grew up, and my deep love is why I do this today. I will be in the Octagon again soon and fully expect to box again. You will need to stay tuned, but trust me—the fans will enjoy. Giving them what they want and entertaining them is important to me.
