He mentioned that McGregor was very generous and noted that the former two-division UFC champion is a charismatic person.

He said:

“He couldn’t have been more gracious and I actually met Conor [McGregor] before. He was ESPN…it was before he fought Jose Aldo and this was before the suits, he was just going around shadowboxing. And he talks to me before I go on set to do Sportscenter. And as soon as I saw him, he recalled that moment.” [19:15 – 19:35]
