McGregor training video with Roddy

Video appearance

McGregor posts a training video, sparring against Roddy.

Like the late, great Bruce Lee once said: “When you are talking about fighting, as it is, with no rules, well then baby, you’d better train every part of your body”.

Myself and @sbgcharlestown have been working together on unrestricted, unarmed fighting, since we are kids. Not much will change when I fight under the famed, yet very limited, Queensbury rules. No disrespect to single discipline fighters, from boxing to kicking to grappling, just know that understanding one style of fighting is simply not enough. You are lying to yourself. You are easily dismantled in a true fight. A fight with no rules to protect you. In a straight fight, you do not possess enough tools to keep you alive. You will be dismantled and killed. Like the late, great Bruce Lee once said: "When you are talking about fighting, as it is, with no rules, well then baby, you'd better train every part of your body"

McGregor sends ‘protege’ boxing lesson

Video appearance

McGregor posts an Instagram video of him critiquing the boxing techniques of a ‘protege’. He also talks about the Mayweather fight, and about training his son to be a fighter.

Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something…When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.

Here is a reply video I sent one of my protégés who was seeking advice on some boxing only pad work footage they sent me. I believe you will like it. The focus has been solely boxing lately but make no mistakes, the kicking and grappling aspects, and everything else got to do with unlimited free fighting, is still very much present in my thoughts. Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something. But whatever that's another conversation. I like to build fighters and watch their progression. I have built many to this date, and all unintentionally. One is fighting in the UFC main event this weekend. When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.

Bellew: I’d take McGregor’s head off

Video appearance

As part of a Snapchat Q&A Bellew is asked if he’d fight McGregor in boxing at Croke park, in Dublin

If he’s weighing 155 and I’m 200 pounds, you are right I’m gonna fight him. I’ll take his head off.

On Mayweather vs. McGregor.

Two totally different sports. If Floyd was to get into a cage with Conor he’d get torn to pieces. He’d literally pull Floyd’s arm off. But if Conor was to get in a boxing ring, and abide by boxing rules, he’d be absolutely outclassed and embarrassed in two to three rounds…Conor’s got a good stand-up game for a UFC fighter. He has an abysmal boxing game. I don’t even think he’d beat British or European champions. But you put him in a cage, the guy’s an animal. He’d pull the arms and legs off you. He’s really that good.

The Softer Side of Conor McGregor video

Video appearance

To complement its feature interview, GQ releases a video called The Softer Side of Conor McGregor, in which the fighter is asked a number of softer questions, such as,”When was the last time you cried?”

Probably when I won my first UFC world title. It was the interim featherweight world title. I travelled all over the world for it and I won. And I was in the shower. And my girlfriend was in the shower with me, and I started crying then.

Mayweather Snr. watches McGregor-Alvarez

Video appearance

Mayweather Snr. comments on McGregor against his son.

Floyd would whoop someone like his ass anyway. A jab would take care his ass all day…I think Conor McGregor is a talker not a do-er. Whatever he do in the ring…they’re not gonna let him get away with sweeping the feet, elbows and all that…Floyd can hit him jabs and stuff all night and cut him up.

Then he watches the McGregor-Alvarez fight.

I ain’t gonna say his fundamentals ain’t good. I don’t think his fundamentals aren’t bad. It ain’t up there with the man…My son gonna cut his beard for him.

Devenish behind-the-scenes video

Video appearance

The Mac Life releases behind-the-scenes video of McGregor’s interview and speech at Devenish nightclub in Belfast.

If I focus with the work ethic I have solely on the sport of boxing, there’s no telling what I could do. I would not go in there just to show up, I’d go in there to knock [Floyd] out. That’s it. He can be hit, he’s been hit before.

Dustin Poirier before: To tell you the honest truth, I’ve fought tougher guys.

CMG: All you’ve go to do is look at his face. That boy is ugly. He will be unrecognisable by the end of the contest. Just look at Nate Diaz.
EA: I could care less about the way I look after a fight. I will win and the fight won’t end until I win.
CMG: It’s all over Edward.
EA: I took on the best guys in the world. One by one by one. I’ve been top in the world for years. Years. This guy’s just coming on this sport.
CMG: Come on Eddie, you’ve been over in Japan, or some shit. You’ve been fighting bums all your life. You’ve never been on this stage. You’ve never been against a guy like me. You’re an absolute bum. Look at your face! You’re the most beat up guy there is.

Video appearance

McGregor makes a basketball shot at UFC 205 open workout.

I’ve had a crazy year. I wouldn’t miss this event. I built this event. On Saturday night I become immortal. I’m ready to stop my opponent in devastating fashion. Asked about his preparation for the fight, he was buoyant that he is in as good shape as ever. How do I look? I’m feeling better than I look.

One shot. What can't this man do?!
