“I am often asked:“ Why are you fighting?
After all, you are already rich. "
It's true, I have everything.
I guess I'm even richer than Dana White.
But I want to be here and I love doing it!
This is my motivation.
Money and belts - they come and go, but your highlights will stay with you forever!
Look at the highlights of Roy Jones, Mike Tyson, Muhammad Ali - they are eternal!
I want my highlights to be like a movie, so that reality is like a movie.
I want to show them to my son in the future and enjoy.
I just love this game, my life, and don't try to get rid of me! "
McGregor said at a press conference ahead of UFC 257.
In the next bout, the Irishman will face the former interim champion of the organization in lightweight Dustin Poirier.
