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.

In this episode of The Takedown, McGregor discusses his confident mindset, career success, gift of gab, and his future in the UFC.
I believe my words will intimidate. My opponents in the American media label it ‘trash talk’. I label it ‘speaking fact’. I just like to assess the situation, I like to look at my opponent. If someone asks me I speak my mind, I tell the truth…At the end of the day we get in a fight. I don’t have to do anything to intimidate these people – they already are intimidated…I can tell when a guy is struggling with it..If no-one asks I wouldn’t say. This is the fight business, and people want to know what we are thinking, and what we are going to do to our opponent. …It’s real. If it’s not real I won’t say it…I honestly believe I can read the mind better than the movement. ‘Know yourself to know others,’ is what Bruce Lee said. Maybe to the naked eye it might seem like these people are confident. But I see different.
