As Conor McGregor’s star continues to rise, he continues to gain popularity and notiriety from the outside public. The latest person to join “The Notorious” bandwagon is none other than the Terminator himself — Arnold Schwarzenegger.

“Conor is one of the greatest athletes probably of all times,” Schwarzenegger said while promoting his new film, Terminator: Genisys. “He has the right combination of the mind and the body and the talent. The two are connected so well with him, which I think is so important in athletics, that you believe 100-percent in your victory. Because when you believe it, you see it, believe it and achieve it. That’s the way it goes. With him you can see that.”

The Terminator star continued, “He’s a great, great athlete and he’s also a fun guy to hang out with. He is very good with improvisation. He reminds me a little bit of the way I always was when I grew up in bodybuilding. The only way you get noticed was if you say outrageous things, and he does that to get noticed. And because of that, because he’s a great fighter and because of his personality, he is now becoming the hottest ticket. His fights will be sold out everywhere and he will have the highest viewership.”
