UFC fans have learned that Conor McGregor is not afraid to speak his mind.
The latest soundbite from the “Notorious” one came Saturday when he spoke to RTE Sport in Ireland. McGregor said he hopes to speak with the new UFC ownership group before making any future plans in the UFC.
“I’m weighing up my options,” McGregor told RTE Sport. “Again, I expect that conversation, I expect them to fly that jet to me. Ari (Emanuel), Patrick (Whitesell), the new owners from WME-IMG, the guys that bought the UFC for $4 billion, I want to speak to them.”
While he understands that the WME-IMG ownership group might have plans in the works involving him, he says nothing will take action until he his spoken to first.
“I want to see what their plan is cause right now I don’t know what anybody’s plan is,” he told RTE Sport. “All I know is they’re trying to type onto a keyboard and say we’re taking this belt and we’re taking that belt, we’re doing this, we’re doing that — you ain’t doing nothing without contacting me first,” McGregor warned.
