Check out this new interview with UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor talking about his training and upcoming fights in the UFC.
McGregor has a chance to make history and become the first fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold two different weight division’s titles. McGregor will test his skills against the UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 on March 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
McGregor says in this recent interview that he isn’t going to stop at just the lightweight title.
“Look at everyone down there,” McGregor says pointing towards the guys in his gym. “180 – 200 (pounds), easy, everybody. Everyone I’m sparring is well over welterweight. I’ve got middleweights coming in fresh trying to wear me down, you know what I mean? So, why not go up.
“They get slower and they get less free up there, I feel. Even more stuck than the lightweight division.
“I’ll keep going, I’ll keep eating, I’ll keep training and keep going until all the f–king belts are wrapped up.”
McGregor goes on to say that he will fight anyone at any weight.
“I’m afraid of no one. I’ll go up and fight any weight and that’s it. Anyone can come down and step in that cage with me or any cage and see how they fare. But, nobody fares well, that’s for sure.”
“The Notorious” later says in the interview that once his goals are accomplished, he will simply walk away from the sport.
“I’m here to fight. I’m here to win every belt, and then I’m gone. And then I’ll see the game later. I’ll walk away from this game. I’ll set it ablaze, and walk away. And that’s it.”
