We take a look at five of this fighter's best quotes

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."
