Everyone knows how confident UFC Featherweight contender “The Notorious” Conor McGregor is, however UFC President Dana White found out up-close and personal this week just how confident the rising Irish star is.
“You want to know how confident this kid is,” said White on the Jim Rome Show on Tuesday. “I can’t even believe I’m going to say this, but he told Lorenzo [Fertitta] and I the other day, ‘I’ll bet you $3 million I knock him out in the second round.'”
White continued, “I like to bet, I don’t know if I’m that willing to take that bet. When I tell you how extremely confident this guy is in himself, it’s fascinating. He is a very unique, fascinating person to listen to. Fun to listen to, and fun to watch.”
Headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Chad Mendes for the interim UFC Featherweight Championship, UFC 189 takes place on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
