Former UFC two-weight champion, Conor McGregor, has named his main motive that keeps him from ending his professional fighter career.
“A lot of people tell me, ‘Conor, you have achieved everything, you are already richer than Dan White, so why are you fighting?’, But I want to be here and perform for the fans,” the Irishman said at a press conference for UFC 257. “Money, titles, it all comes and goes, but you know what remains? Highlights! I’m still revisiting the highlights of Roy Jones, Mike Tyson, Muhammad Ali, and I want my highlight to be like a movie. “
“I want to go out and win, showing incredible things, so that in old age, together with my son, revise my highlights and enjoy life while sipping Proper 12 sitting by the fireplace. I live by this, so don’t try to get rid of me. I like it here, because I was involved in the construction of all this “
Recall that the main event of UFC 257, which will take place on January 23 in Abu Dhabi, will be a potential challenger fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.
