He's going for a first round knockout...
Conor McGregor spoke during a fan Q&A about his fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 178. Check out the highlights:
On not being a fan of Los Angeles: "I'm over here for business, and I don't really care about anything else," McGregor said.
On his fight with Poirier: "This is who I am. I like to look good and whoop ass. It's what I do best. I'm not trying to be nobody but me and on Sept. 27, I'll rip Dustin's head clean off. It makes no difference that it's a little pea head. Dustin's all talk. Dustin thinks it's all talk, but when he wakes up with his nose plastered on the other side of his face, he's going to know it's not all talk."
On Dennis Siver questioning McGregor ranking above him: "My thoughts on Dennis Siver are: He's a midget German steroid head. That's my thoughts on him, so I don't have any thoughts other than that. … But if you think I celebrate No. 9, you're highly mistaken my friend. I don't give a s–t about rankings. As far as I'm concerned, I'm No. 1. And when Dustin's head clatters off that canvas, they'll realize. They'll realize pretty soon."
On Poirier: "Don't get me wrong; I like the kid. He's a quiet little hillbilly from the back-ass of nowhere. I've nothing against the guy. I'm sure he grew up in a circus or a farm. He's a nice little kid. His cousin is probably named Cletus or something. I don't know. He's a nice kid, but his chin is getting cracked, and it's going to be cracked early."
On his strategy against Poirier: "His chin is deteriorating. Every single contest he gets in, he hits one knee. A gust of wind, and he does the chicken dance. Coming up against me, that's not going to be good. I'm going to crack him with a jab and he's going to wobble, and I'm going to put him away early. It's going to be a first-round KO. Mark my words."
