#ManCrushMonday: Conor McGregor
One wouldn't expect the paths of hipsters and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweights to ever cross, but they seem to have converged nicely in a road that leads to Conor McGregor. A newbie to the UFC scene, the Irish mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter is all custom-made suits and Movember perfection. Aside from his dapper appearances, McGregor has been gaining some serious traction, both for his fighting skills and — to put it delicately — gift of the gab. From jibes at opponents to lofty chest-thumping rants, we round up five of the athlete's best quotes thus far.
On José Aldo, before their fight:
"I'm going to create dead space inside that Octagon, I'm going to lead him into that dead space time and time again. He's going to fall into the dead space like a zombie, like a mummy."
On his big wins:
"To be honest I don't know what's going on here. I'm just up here with $60,000. I'm just thinking of what I'm going to spend it on."
On donning suits:
"If you give me a chance to wear a suit, I'm going to come in with a custom suit made from scratch, straight from the fabric, fitted perfectly on my fantastic physique."
On being prepared for fights:
"I stay ready so I don't have to get ready."
On keeping up appearances:
"There are two things I like to do: Whoop ass and look good."
