Conor McGregor komt nogal eens in het nieuws en het gaat maar door. Hij is een van de beste MMA vechters maar vooral één van de meest invloedrijke. Dat vindt TIME Magazine ook: Conor is toegevoegd aan de lijst van “World’s 100 most influential people”.
Niemand anders dan Arnold Schwarzenegger zegt:
Conor McGregor is more than a fighter, more than an athlete, more than a champion—although, as the first person in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship to hold titles in two weight divisions at once, he is clearly all of those things. Conor is also the rare personality who has become bigger than his sport. That lean, compact body must struggle to keep his enormous character inside.
Kudo’s van de Terminator: dan ben je binnen. De Governator gaat nog even door:
“From the first time I met Conor, I knew he wasn’t the type of star you could box into one category. Since I’ve gotten to know him, I can tell you that what you see on the screen—the now familiar face of mixed martial arts—just scratches the surface. The Dublin native is razor-sharp, disciplined and charismatic. His energy is absolutely contagious, to the point where you almost start shouting in an Irish accent after 30 seconds of hearing that world-famous mouth.
“Conor has a fire in his belly that can’t be quenched with championship belts. There are no brakes that can stop his engine.”
Nog even en Conor gaat voor het presidentschap.
