No one has experienced luxury like Conor McGregor in the game of fighting. ‘The Notorious One’ has seen it all and done it all. Enormous wealth accumulated, and devastating injuries later, McGregor still seems motivated. The Irishman himself revealed what gets him out of bed these days.
Conor McGregor made a special appearance on the MMA Hour show hosted by reputed journalist Ariel Helwani. The Notorious One rocked up to the studio in a sophisticated orange suit and spoke about what he was up to next. The fighter has often been doubted for his hunger for the sport recently.
Helwani asked McGregor what gets him out of bed after all the success he’s achieved in the sport and ‘The Notorious One’ had an amazing response. “I’ve got the satin sheets, I’ve got the silk sheets, I’ve got the Egyptian cotton duvets and pillows. I’ve got everything,” said McGregor in the interview.
So what still keeps the Irishman motivated? “Competition, man. It’s the best buzz ever. Why would you not want to do it? How would you not want to make this walk and experience this whole thing?” replied McGregor. Competition is highly addictive and McGregor admits he is addicted to the sport and competition.
