The Mac Life releases a behind-the-scenes video of McGregor celebrating his UFC 205 win at the official after-party.
My agenda will be based on a simple core principle: putting America first. Whether it’s producing steel, building cars, or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here, on our great homeland, America, creating wealth and jobs for American workers. As part of this plan I’ve asked my transition team team to develop a list of executive actions to restore our laws and bring back our jobs. On trade, I’m going to withdraw from Trans Pacific Partnership…On Energy, I will cancel job-killing restrictions on the production of American energy including shale energy and clean coal, creating many millions of high-paying jobs. That’s what we want. That’s what we’ve been waiting for. On regulation, I will formulate a rule that says for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated. On national security I will ask the Department of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to develop a comprehensive plan to protect America’s vital infrastructure from cyber attacks, and all other form of attack. On immigration I will direct the Department of Labor to investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the American worker. On ethics reform, as part of our plan to drain the swamp, we will impose a five-year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists, after they leave the administration. And a lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying for a foreign government. These are just a few of the steps we will take to reform Washington and rebuild our middle class. As we work together to make America great again for everyone. And I mean everyone.

Conor McGregor is so offensive minded and never on the defense that whenever you put him on the defense he gets so flustered and so upset. At a certain point on our press conference cal he got desperate and started talking about my wife and kids and things like that. For me, It’s just a sign of desperation. You don’t talk about another man’s family unless you’re through the roof pissed off.

This is completely outside of the fight world. I didn’t think I would get on the front cover of a UFC video game. I saw a lot of things, but I didn’t see video games. But I’m happy to be here. I get approached all the time with roles and all this stuff. Not many of them are interesting but this one was definitely of interest to me so I went with it and it’s been good. It’s such a big game. I play a good load of games, but there’s only two games I actually really play that I’ve been obsessed with: The UFC game and Call of Duty. Now I’m in both of them. It’s very surreal.

You might think somethings going to happen but then something else will happen. So today we spar. Solid, hard sparring. Fresh bodies coming in, a good diverse mix of partners. Dillon Danis; the boy’s 185-pounds. He’s a big boy, comes in and puts that heavy pressure on. Then the last few rounds with Artem. Banging the overhands, stiffen the head, pushing forward. Good solid rounds…I’m coming alive. As my body fat’s going down, my v02 max is going up. How [Alvarez] thinks he’s going to last anywhere near the fifth round… if he does, he’ll never fight again. If he does, I’ll take my hat off to his heart. But it’ll be like Nate, he’ll never, ever be the same again. But if he takes it to the fifth, that’s when I take off. I’m sprinting in the fifth.

My manager rang me and said there’s an opportunity to come in and be part of the game. I’ve played the game for many years. I was addicted to it at one stage, when I wasn’t training so much…I’d be up all night, literally all night. I’d wake up. I’d go training. I’d do two, maybe three hours training. I’d come home nice and early, I’d sit down and I’d play Black Ops II the whole night through…I was just hooked on it, bad hooked on it…To be a part of such a big game like Call of Duty…It’s just another dream come true.
