After meeting Mayweather for the first time onstage at the Staples Center, McGregor gives a speech:
Baby we did it! I couldn’t hear anything them motherf-ckers said. I’m absolutely honored to be here with the fans. Somebody’s oh has got to go. He’s in a f-cking track suit. He can’t even afford a suit any more. The Rolls is a 2012 outside. He is f-cked. There’s no other way about it. His little legs, his little core. I’m gonna knock him out inside four rounds…I’m a young happy, content, man that has worked extremely hard for this. I can do what the f-ck I want up here. I’m just enjoying myself. The movement, the power. He’s not experienced this. I don’t fear him. I don’t fear his limited set of fighting rules. This is half a fight, a quarter of a fight. if this was a true fight this would only take one round.
I’ve got my own line of suits coming out. If you zoom in you’ll see it says ‘f-ck you’ on the pinstripes.
[My son] is the perfect inspiration for me to do this. What more motivation can you need? No-one’s done this before. Let’s get this world tour started. Let’s have fun.
