Conor McGregor: I’m gonna tell welfare office to f@$% off now

Saturday, April 06, 2013

In the opening moments of the UFC on FUEL 9 post-fight press conference, it was announced that the $60,000 Knockout of the Night performance bonus went to Irish Featherweight Conor McGregor, following his KO of Marcus Brimage in just 67 seconds.

And what does McGregor want to do with the money?

“I’m just happy I won $60K,” said McGregor. “I’m just thinking on what I’m going to spend it on. I’ll buy myself a car any way. A nice car, may be some suits or something. Custom made suits, I don’t know.

“Just last week I was collecting the social welfare, you know what I mean? I was in there saying to them like, ‘I don’t know what going to happen. I’m signed to the UFC. I don’t know what….blah, blah, blah.’

“But now I supposed I’m gonna have to tell them to f— off!”

“I didn’t have money before this… I was collecting 188 Euro ($245) a week off the social welfare. And now here I am, with like 60gs bonus and then my own pay. I don’t know what the f—s going on to be honest, right?”
