Jared Cannonier Wants to Remain Low-Key, Unlike Conor McGregor

Don’t expect Jared Cannonier to pull off a Conor McGregor strut.

Cannonier is set to do battle with Jan Blachowicz this Saturday night (Dec. 16). The bout will take place inside the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It’ll be the featured bout on the UFC on FOX 26 prelims.

“I’m not trying to get on the fast track to anything. I’m trying to work my way up. I ain’t in a rush; I ain’t trying to get all famous and be the next Conor McGregor, doing coke and beating up gangsters and (expletive) like that. I’m good. I’m humble. I’m content.

People get in there and fake it and act. I ain’t trying to do all that. I ain’t got time for that. I just want to fight, be with my family. That’s it.”
