UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is currently on the sidelines awaiting the birth of his first child, but that's not slowing the wild man down from.....being a wild man.
While McGregor has been teasing a potential mega-fight with boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather, the former UFC double champion took some time to speak to GQ while in Los Angeles. McGregor seemed to have a pretty broad reason for being in town, but seems to want to do some site seeing.
"Maybe I’ll search for Khloé's [Kardashian] big fat ass," McGregor said. "She’s been floating around Malibu. I don’t give a f-ck about them [the Kardashians]. I just like to see them in the flesh, just see what the big fat asses on them look like."
McGregor has become a giant sensation for the UFC, averaging well over one million pay-per-view buys over his last five fights. Despite his rags to riches story -- he went from social welfare in Ireland to being a multimillionaire -- he doesn't lose sight of his priorities. When asked if he admired the Kardashian sisters, he had a quick reply.
"Admire? Never. What’s the saying? Never put the p*ssy on a pedestal, my friend. I just want to see it. I want to see them. People think I'm a celebrity. I'm not a celebrity. I break people's faces for money and bounce,” said McGregor.
While McGregor doesn't have his next fight scheduled, the UFC has scheduled an interim UFC Lightweight Championship fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson for UFC 209 in March in his absence. Fightful will have full, live coverage of the event, and preview/review the event from all angles on the Fightful MMA Podcast.
