Aside from looking dapper in the glitzy spread, the Irish sensation also opens up about a variety of topics in the wide-ranging interview. From his feud with Floyd Mayweather Jr. to his goal of meeting the Kardashians, McGregor covers a lot of ground in the new profile piece.
Here are a few highlights from Conor McGregor's interview with GQ Style.
He Wants to Keep Up with the Kardashians
McGregor claims in the interview that he's "not a celebrity," but that doesn't mean he's not a fan of the Hollywood life.
Following an expensive shopping excursion in downtown Los Angeles, the combat sports star revealed to writer Zach Baron that he planned on tracking down a Kardashian during a trip to Malibu. Why you ask? Well, he just wants to see what their famous derrieres look like in person.
"Maybe I'll search for Khloé's big fat ass — she's been floating around Malibu," McGregor said in the piece. "I don't give a f--k about them. I just like to see them in the flesh.”
He's a Huge Drake Fan
Another celebrity McGregor seems to like is Drake, as the Irish fighter loves to reference the rapper's lines in his interviews. GQ went as far as calling McGregor a "disciple of Drake" due to his fondness for the Canadian hip-hop star's music.
"They all want to be me a little. That's a Drake line," McGregor said in the piece while talking about how he's influenced fashion in Ireland. "All them boys want to be me a little. And it's true as f--k.”
Another line that McGregor likes to quote, which seems appropriate thanks to all the media hysteria , is this: "If they don't have a story these days, they'll make one."
Here's His Take on Donald Trump
Since even the world of sports doesn't seem immune from talk of President Donald Trump, McGregor offered his two cents on the controversial Commander in Chief.
The champ recalled the frenzy that took over New York City during the election, which happened to coincide with his historic match-up against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205. McGregor said that the anti-Trump protesters were in the "wrong mind-set" and shouldn't put all the blame on the new president.
“People like to blame others. I think a person should just look at their own situation, look around them, find out what they wish to do, and seek and go and do that," McGregor said. "And that's it. I was in New York when all of that was going down, the protests in New York with the Trump thing. It's like, ‘Trump, out!’"
He added that rather than pointing fingers or standing in picket lines, people should focus on maximizing their own situations.
He's Still About the Money
As for McGregor's situation, it's still about the money for "Notorious."
While he seemingly walked back comments on wanting a stake in the promotion, McGregor was pretty adamant about what he wants from the UFC right now.
“Mmm…yeah. Four point two billion dollars.” McGregor said, referencing the UFC's recent sale. “I want to negotiate what I'm worth. I want to put my analytics forward, man-to-man, and be like, ‘This is what I'm owed now. Pay me.’ And then we can talk.”
McGregor said he wants a "hell of a fatter check" before going down the path of becoming a stakeholder in the promotion.
Of Course Mayweather Is on His Mind
Since a money match-up against Mayweather is all that people are talking about these days, McGregor didn't shy away from commenting on the situation or how he thinks the fight will go down.
Always willing to trash talk, McGregor had some choice words for the boxing legend, saying that the older Mayweather won't be able to take his punches.
"Honestly, my fist is bigger than his head. I sleep people," McGregor said. "I put people unconscious. I'm stating facts. If I hit that man, his head is gonna go into the bleachers. You understand that? If I crack that little head of his, it's gonna go clean off his shoulders and up into the bleachers.”
The champ added that he's also willing to beat up a few of Mayweather's past opponents before getting in the ring with the undefeated boxer.
