One of the reasons that UFC superstar Conor McGregor has reached new levels of popularity is being able to talk the talk and then walk the walk.
McGregor’s uncanny fight predictions have been so accurate at times, it seems like something straight out of a movie.
Take a look at this amazing edit of “The Notorious” starting from early on in his MMA career when he had just five professional fights under his name up to the moment he called exactly how the fight against Jose Aldo would go at UFC 194.
“I’m a professional MMA fighter with a record of 4-1,” a young McGregor said not that long ago. “I’m an up and coming fighter and without a doubt, you will see me in the UFC in the near future. Without a doubt.”
That was surely the case just as “Mystic Mac” called it and came in with a few goals in mind.
“There’s a lot of great stars up here,” McGregor said at a press conference in the video. “A lot of huge, huge fights but let’s see by the end of 2015. Let’s see who has the highest pay-per-view. Let’s see who has the highest gate. Let’s see who has the highest attendance you know cause I am setting up for that and we are in talks for big, big things.”
At UFC 205 over the weekend in New York’s Madison Square Garden, Conor McGregor made history by becoming the first fighter in the UFC to be the champion of two weight divisions at the same time. Currently, “The Notorious” holds the UFC featherweight title and with his win over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, he now also holds the UFC lightweight title.
Fans are all waiting on what the future will hold for “The Notorious” as there are many options for the undeniably popular fighter.
