The Irishman has an asset of 22 wins and 4 losses in the UFC division, returning this January to win over Donald Serone from punishment for the scandals following his loss to Habib Nurmagomedov.
The 31-year-old McGregor held another online monologue, which was further warmed up by the fans. And he concluded that he was second in the ranking “greatest of all time”.
In front of him, Connor put only Anderson Silva, whom he called GOAT – the popular acronym in recent years, when someone defines the strongest in a particular sport in its history.
However, McGregor clarified that he will “easily” surpass the Brazilian before giving up and that he will be the greatest of all time in his retirement from MMA.
“My achievements in three divisions, with champion status in two of them, is enough. I’m number two at the moment. If not equal to the first, but let it be Silva. But I’m still an active fighter, so №1 is guaranteed for the rest of my career. No chance of it happening. ”
In addition, the confident Irishman put the other two names in his “top 4 of all time” – George St. Pierre and John Jones (who is also still fighting).
Of course, Connor did not fail to specify that “if I take into account the doping tests, I will be the undisputed number one.” Apparently referring to the fact that Jones and Silva have tested positive over the years.
