Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight king Conor McGregor will take to the stage later tonight (Sat., Jan. 28, 2017) from Manchester, England, in an exclusive Q&A session with MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani. But before “Notorious” goes up against the UFC on FOX 23 broadcast (results here), he offered the world of combat sports, among other worlds, a sneak peek into what we can expect from his pay-per-view (PPV) interview. McGregor posted the following to his Instagram account earlier today:
I’m so made!
Heading to do a Q and A in front of 5000 fans! You read that right. That’s more than UFC attendance tonight. And it’s on PPV at http://www.notoriouslive.co
Fuck the UFC. Fuck Floyd. Fuck boxing. Fuck the WWE. Fuck Hollywood. And fuck you too pay me.
Here’s a recap of some of the things he said, via MMA Mania:
Eddie Alvarez fight at UFC 205: I made an error in the first round. I got greedy. That’s the only reason he survived the first round
Roger Mayweather: Roger Mayweather says most people don’t know sh*t about boxing. Well, Conor McGregor says most people don’t know sh*t about fighting.
UFC: At the end of the day, my shadow looms large over the entire FW division, over the entire LW division, over the entire UFC.
Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) fine: I’m going to fly over there and fix it, get my boxing license, and then we’ll see where the f*ck Floyd’s at!
Vince McMahon money walk: Vince McMahon must be pissed. I don’t give a f*ck about Vince Mahon. I stole that walk and now that walk is mine.
Floyd Mayweather Jr.: I have my eyes on one thing right now, and that’s Floyd Mayweather.
Possibility of Mayweather fight: That fight is more than just being explored. There’s a lot of steps, but it’s the fight to make. It’s the fight I want.
Going up against UFC on FOX 23: There’s more people here than currently at the UFC event right now. That should tell you everything you need to know.
Ronda Rousey’s UFC 207 media blackout: I didn’t give a f*ck.
Nate Diaz: Now you’re at the back of the queue. But I’ll get to Nate. Me and Nate will throw down again for the 155lb title.
Anderson Silva’s callout: What’s Anderson talking about? He keeps mentioning my name. Look, I’ll fight any one of them. Make sure the numbers are right.
Georges St-Pierre’s involvement with MMA Athletes Association (MMAAA): The only reason you’re standing in the middle of that union is because you couldn’t get the deal you wanted.
Appearing in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 2017: Never say never.
UFC 205’s big announcement: McGregor Promotions, but I decided against it at the last moment.
Having a baby boy: The only time my records will be broken is by my own spawn.
