McGregor prepares for UFC 202
Conor McGregor is preparing for the fight of his life this Saturday. The Irish MMA phenomenon has to bounce back from a defeat against Nate Diaz in a rematch against the American at UFC 202. The build-up to the fight sees both fighters doing a lot of press work to promote it – particularly McGregor.
Everyone wants to have a word with the charismatic martial artist. BT Sport had the privilege of a lengthy interview with the man himself and they’ve uploaded it to their YouTube channel. Football fans will be interested to hear that his friendship with Cristiano Ronaldo is brought up.
The Real Madrid superstar was recently photographed in the gym with McGregor.
Slapping the head off your mate
The Dubliner is happy to call Ronaldo a friend, a nice guy. He complimented his physique and then established his alpha male status by saying he’d slap the head off him. McGregor also explains how the two became friends. It’s all thanks to Ronaldo’s underwear line. Watch the interview in the video below.
