Conor McGregor makes his ‘GOAT’ Admission
Since sustaining a brutal injury in main event of the UFC 264 against Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor has been away from the cage, but been in media’s limelight time often.
In a recent interview, the Notorious seemed all about drawing inspiration from a fellow Irishman. Talking to Rolling Stone on St. Patrick’s Day, McGregor said that he was very moved by Tom Brady’s comeback.
The MMA star feels that he uses Brady’s comeback as a motivation to ensure that he gets back in the ring as well.
“Brady is the GOAT of this sport. He has that mentality and arrogance that I admire very fondly,” the former UFC double champ said.
“I have always liked the Irish spirit inside him. We have a very good relationship with one another and respect each other’s careers.”
The 33-year-old has also given an update about the plans of his return to the ring.
“Currently, I go to the gym regularly and train freely. I am strongly focused on getting back to the ring and competing with the best. I see progress every day. I would recover faster than most expect,” McGregor claimed.
In a separate development, he has claimed that he can beat Kamaru Usman if he is locked against the Nigerian Nightmare on his return.
Although, the welterweight champ thinks otherwise.
