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?"

(5:20 mark)

So he won 60k and he's going to spend it all on a car and custom suits? I wouldn't tell welfare to fuck off yet then.

But congrats goes out to him on the W. Phone Post 3.0

**awaits 2-3 pages of criticism on fighter financial awareness by people who've never fought before AND cant understand humor.

I bet you guys think Nick Diaz is going to prison (Wesley Snipes style) for tax evasion too?

That is why poor people are poor, that is why many athletes go broke after they are done playing, that is why lottery winners end up broke.

Or you know, don't tell them to fuck off but tell them thanks for supporting your ass.

He's probably going to be back on welfare within a year with his attitude.

lol did you see his fight? I'm guessing not.. this kid has a future.. much brighter than yours if I had to guess.. must be where all that bitterness is coming from.

James J Braddock after being on welfare "They paid me. I returned it; let them give it to someone else because they were good enough to give it to me"

Conor Mcgregor after being on welfare "I suppose I'm going to have to tell them to f*** off!"

Jesus Christ, cut the kid some slack. He just won a fight, biggest night of his life, on international TV, responding to reporters. Wtf, I'd he supposed to say? That I'm going to invest it in mortgage backed securities? Phone Post
