“I don’t believe he’s a step up or the best guy I’ve ever fought,” McGregor told MMAjunkie. “I look in the mirror and that’s the best guy I’ve ever fought. For me, this fight seems easy.”

“He’s a journeyman fighter, and that’s what I see,” McGregor said. “He doesn’t impress me at all. I believe he’s a basic fighter, he throws basic shots, and in my eyes he’s a journeyman. It’s that simple.”

“I definitely saw a broken man,” McGregor said. “I could look through his soul when I looked into that man’s eyes. He’s been speaking his bit, but as I said before: Face-to-face, man-to-man, he was broken. It was as simple as that.

“The performance will prove that because once the cage door closes and the lights go down, you can’t hide. There’s nowhere to run, there’s nowhere to hide. It will come out on Sept. 27 that what I’m saying is true.”
