At the UFC 205 press conference, featherweight champion Conor McGregor borrowed a page from the dialogue and multiplied it by 40.

“I feel by the time 2016 closes out, I’ll be closing in on $40 million,” said McGregor, as transcribed by Mike Bohn and Ken Hathaway for MMAjunkie. “This is a $40 million year for me. A damn good year.”

“[Eddie Alvarez] is very lucky to be in the position he’s in. He understands that. That’s why he took this fight on the money he was on the last fight. That says it all.”

“He’s just another broke bum trying to sell some s***. He’s broke and he’s desperate and he’s trying to make it, ‘McGregor’s this, McGregor’s that.’ We’ve heard it all before. He’s just another broke bum that can’t afford to pay his bills. That’s all it is.”

Conor McGregor fights UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in the main event of the greatest card in league history, at UFC 205 on November 12, 2016 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, live on pay per view television.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
