Bring On Conor McGregor's Trash Talk As He Reveals He’ll Fight in UFC For A Few More Years

With a new documentary and a line of new opponents just waiting to face him in the UFC Octagon, Conor McGregor just doesn't know when to stop, and we're not complaining.

It seems the Irish fighter doesn't plan to change that any time soon after he vowed to fight for at least a few more years.

McGregor added that he'd only retire if he takes an absolute walloping in a fight, saying that he remains "relatively undamaged". It seems like he's put that Floyd Mayweather fight behind him already.

"I will most certainly compete again, for the next couple of years anyway, and then I'll see where it is," McGregor said on RTE's The Late, Late Show.

"I could cut it off yesterday, you know what I mean? I don't really have a date and a time and an age because I use it from a damage-taking standpoint. How many blows have I taken?"

McGregor claimed that he has climbed to the "very, very, very top" of his sport and not without a lot of hard work.

He said that his success has taken a "crazy" amount of effort and that most people don't see the "wars upon wars" it takes to get in the ring.

"I've gone through strenuous camp, after camp, after camp," McGregor added. "But compared to other people in the fight game, I'm still relatively undamaged."

McGregor still rejects the claim he "wobbled" in his fight against Mayweather back in August, blaming his defeat on tiredness.

Instead, he claimed that he's never been "dropped" and reckoned that his first fight against Nate Diaz in 2016 was the only time he's struggled in the ring. Questionable, that one.

McGregor isn't just itching to go mano-a-mano against some of his old MMA opponents in the Octagon again. He also wants to face Mayweather in the UFC ring where he believes he'll have the upper hand this time.

Notorious made the statement during a recent Q&A in Glasgow where he also boasted he would beat Mayweather if they were to box again. Mate, just let it go.

Conor claims that Mayweather has already promised to have a rematch under MMA rules. We'll see about that one.

McGregor has also said that he would love to face Diaz for a third time, with both fighters having won one match of their two bouts so far.

McGregor said that the match-up with Diaz "has to happen" due to the pair's acrimonious history.

Whoever McGregor ends up facing up against next, get ready for a lot more trash-talking to come. We can't wait.
