Conor McGregor's greatest quotes

Will he stay retired? who knows. But we do know that Conor McGregor contributed a lot to UFC's growing popularity with his antics both inside and outside the Octagon. Here are some his most outrageous quotes and put downs...

When he was in Rio de Janeiro

“I own this town, I own Rio de Janeiro, so for him to say that he is the king and I am the joker, if this was a different time, I would invade his favela on horseback, and would kill anyone who wasn’t fit to work, but we’re in a new time, so I’ll whoop his ass instead.”

When he told Aldo he would die

“Look into my eyes. Little Brazilian. Você vai morrer (you are going to die).”

Aldo’s period pain

"He (Aldo) has been medically cleared to fight. Doctors have looked at him, examined him. He went out and saw a gynecologist and it turns out, it was just a little period pain."

Cruel intentions

"This guy is a dead man walking. I am going to maul him. I am going to rip him limb from limb."

On Aldo’s opinion

"You see fear in my eyes!? You see nothing in my eyes you little midget."

When he found out he’d be fighting Mendes instead of Aldo

"The ship was sailing smoothly. My coach came into my room at 1pm, I was sleeping, and he told me that Mendes was replacing Aldo. I opened one eye, said “it makes no difference” then went back to sleep.”

Mo money

“The only weight I give a f*** about is the weight of the cheques and my cheques are super-heavyweight.”

We hope he saved well for his retirement

"These custom-made suits aren't cheap. This solid gold pocket watch, three people died making this watch. I need to put people away. I need those big fights. I'm going to end up in debt pretty fast."

His thoughts on Dustin Poirier

"He's a quiet, little hillbilly from the back arse of nowhere. His cousin is probably named Cletus."


“Trash talk? Smack talk? This is an American term that makes me laugh. I simply speak the truth. I’m an Irish man.”

McGregor on Irish fighters in the UFC

"We're not just here to take part — we're here to take over."

I am my own belt

“I should create my own belt. I am, in myself, my own belt. It doesn’t matter if its featherweight, lightweight, welterweight. It’s the McGregor belt. That’s it, I’m fighting for my own belt.”
