Conor McGregor interview

Conor McGregor began reminiscing about his battles in the Octagon and the ring with Nate Diaz and Floyd Mayweather yesterday on social media.

It all started when he responded to video highlights of his loss to Diaz in their first fight, which took place almost exactly three years ago.

“What a sequence!” McGregor wrote of the video, which showed the minutes leading up to his submission loss to the Stockton native. “One of the craziest fights ever. Also the birth of McGregor FAST! The rematch was voted the greatest fight in UFC history. My last one was a small bit wild also haha I love this game. This is my 3rd level of income at this point. I just do it because I love it.

McGregor then went on to recall his rematch with Diaz, which he won by a majority decision verdict on the scorecards.

“It’s fascinating to me watching that loss back. Then watching the come back.
We can always come back!
Anyone can do something once. It’s Can you do it twice is the question. That’s why I doubled up on the belts every time.
Any fool can do it once.”

Now on a roll, McGregor also then responded to a brief video clip of him landing a combination during the eight round of his boxing match with Mayweather in 2017.

“I spoiled it with the rush right hook here. The angle was made. He was in the dirt. I just had to set correctly into my feet and fire. Rushing the right hook I lost balance on my back hand. Great boxing fight! A rematch will be interesting no doubt.”
