After his UFC debut, a KO win over Marcus Brimage in 67 seconds, featherweight Conor McGregor was asked if he was concerned about being fed to the wolves too early in his career.

I'm a wolf," explained the Dublin native.

McGregor arrived in Boston yesterday ahead of his fight Saturday night vs. Max Holloway with a more hype for a fighter in his second UFC fight than almost anyone ever.

“You’ve got that right,” said UFC president Dana White. “Other than Brock Lesnar.”

“I like real fighters. I like guys that want to win it and guys that want to finish and guys that just love to fight. That’s what I love about Conor. He’s a great kid, has got an awesome personality and loves to fight. He’s my kind of guy.”

Can't wait for this hype train to either crash or flourish. Crash preferably, I hate hype jobs.

Don't know about co-main but he should def be on main card, IMO. Pity Dana has a man crush on Hall. Phone Post 3.0

Yesterday he said that the UFC needs a dress code as most of the fighters look homeless.

Funny guy. Definitely stands out in a crowd.

If McGregor truly is number two, then Brock Lesnar was far and away the biggest thing to ever happen in the UFC.

Definitely. I like Holloway to be honest. He doesn't have the intimidating look or physique, but he'll kick your ass. He's surprised me and I find him to be the underdog I rooted for that won and I'm still behind him. I hope this is an awesome fight and very well could be. Conor would be making a massive mistake if looks past Max at all. Phone Post
