McGregor says he is the only UFC fighter who doesn’t do what he’s told.
Listen, everyone in this game does what the f-ck they’re told. Everyone but me, because I run this game. So I don’t give a f-ck about all of that. They told you you’re on the prelims, you’re on the f-cking prelims. They told you to fight, now you’re on the f-cking Fight Night. Nobody has no say in this but me. I’m the only one who can say anything about anything. Everyone else does what they’re told, and rightfully f-cking so. I run this whole shit. I run New York. I’m the reason we’re even here in the first place. I’m the reason this whole thing is happening. If I wasn’t here, this whole ship goes down. And that’s the truth. That’s facts. There’s no one else out there. There’s no one but me.
He also says he won’t retire.
I love it. I don’t stop. It’s all I do. I don’t do nothing else. I continue to show up, I continue to fight, I continue to put these amazing events for the amazing fans of this sport. Of course I love what I do, and not only am I not getting tired of it, I’m actually getting better at it.
