"Conor's pals led the women back into the hotel. when they saw us taking photos they got aggressive", he added. Then there are the crazier possibilities like a super fight rematch with UFC Featherweight champion, Max Holloway or super fights with the Welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley and the Middleweight champion, Georges St-Pierre. "He changed his game plan three times, that's the sign of a true champion", McGregor said.
Having dominated the headlines in 2017, McGregor is firmly aware of how much he is worth having "transcended both the sport of MMA and boxing".
"At this stage of my career, as it has been for the majority of my UFC career, potential opponents must lobby for fights with me".
Wow. McGregor either wants to soak up and extend the attention the "date night" tweet garnered or he's showing how unbothered he is by the backlash it caused.
Months after their "superfight", Floyd Mayweather is now claiming that he "carried" Conor McGregor. I run the fight game, the fashion game, the whiskey game, or whatever the next business endeavour might be.
The Irishman was the subject of a knockout in the 10th round in the last fight, but he's adamant things would be different if they went at it again.
It was reported that Mayweather likely made more than $100 million for the fight. He's retired. I'm not going to start calling him out of retirement.
Reading between those lines, he wants something significant from the UFC. If the UFC is unwilling to give him points in the company, perhaps it would relent and allow his company to co-promote alongside the UFC for his fights. McGregor didn't end up coming out on top but he was much more successful than numerous boxing community expected him to be.
It's a complex negotiation that could take time to work out, if it gets worked out at all. Speaking to Betsafe, he insisted he has every intention of continuing his career - be it in the Octagon or the boxing ring - but warns the deal on the table must be right.
