Watch: Conor McGregor Oozes Class With Comments In Recent Interview

It’s just under one week until the biggest combat fight in sporting history takes place at the T-Mobile Arena. 

On Saturday, August 26th, Conor McGregor will face boxing phenomenon Floyd Mayweather in what is an extremely intriguing contest.

Neither fighter needs an introduction, as their performances inside the octagon and ring respectively established both fighters as global superstars in their respective sport.

With the hype and promotion to the fight coming to its closing stages, Conor McGregor has delivered yet another classy interview that highlights the Irishman’s nature.

When asked by interviewer Andrew McGahon of TheMacLife would he ever consider the prospect of establishing his own gym similar to the UFC Institute in Dublin, his reply oozed in class.

“You know, I’ve had a lot of people come at me with gyms. The original UFC gym brand, they were looking to build mega gyms and all this and you know, I have all this, I am set.”

“I pulled back from it years ago because teammates that I came up with, they were setting up gyms and I didn’t want to interfere and start coming in trying to take on them.”

“I want them to succeed in their chosen area, so I just backed away from it…but I haven’t really thought about that, to be honest, I’m happy the way everything has been.”

It is evident that with McGregor’s popular image and name attached to a gym in Dublin, the gym would gain significant support and attention, however, the fact that he has opted against venturing down that business route because of his former team-mates highlights the type of person he is outside away from the MMA cameras.

The former team-mate in particular that McGregor was talking about here was Paddy “The Hooligan” Holohan, who recently set-up his own Straight Blash Gym in Dublin 24.

In the past, McGregor has always been a big supporter of Holohan, even being there to support Holohan when he first opted to venture down the business route after being medically advised not to pursue MMA any longer.

Similarly, if Conor McGregor did choose to create his own Institute or gym in Ireland, there would be a possibility that it would detract potential customers from the successful John Kavanagh empire, a concept that would not cross McGregor’s mind considering the respect he has for his coach.
