McGregor: ‘Siver Fight Just To Stay Sharp And Get Rich’

Conor McGregor

It was announced earlier today that Conor McGregor would be fighting Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 59 in January as the main event in Boston.

McGregor did a Q&A before the UFC 179 weigh-ins with the hostile Brazilian crowd, who even chanted death threats at McGregor, but the Notorious one was unwavering.

His words:

“Dennis is an easy contest. I like to think of Dennis as a keep fresh, get rich fight.”

“I am the No. 1 contender. The next time Jose steps in the octagon after Saturday night will be to face me. In the meantime, I took a fight with Dennis Siver to eliminate another contender. It’s as simple as that.”
