Whether you like him or not, UFC interim featherweight champion has the charisma to draw in attention. For those clamoring at his fighting skills and brash attitude, to those who can’t stand his bravado, when Conor McGregor speaks, people listen, and it sounds like Hollywood is taking a notice.
McGregor talked about his future working in the movies addressing the media (transcribed by MMA Junkie):
“I’d like to collect in action movies going forward,” McGregor said during a recent media call. “You know, just here today these director guys coming to the house on some Vin Diesel thing. Hollywood is screaming for me, yes, so we’ll see what happens in the future.”
With Ronda Rousey’s success in the UFC, the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion has also found success on the big screen with a few appearances already under her belt. Will Conor McGregor be the next Hollywood star and still keep his focus in the fight game?
“Winners focus on winning, and losers focus on winners,” McGregor said. “So I’m a winner. I focus on winning. I entered that promotion as a winner, as a two-weight world champion, focused on winning, and that’s it.”
