UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has long interjected himself in the conversation when it comes to the UFC ownership and who is running the show, and he certainly didn't waste any time taking some of the credit for the recent UFC sale to WME - IMG.
"Much respect to the Fertitta family. I mean, you wanna talk the greatest of all time in the fight game, you're talking Mr. Fertitta, Mr. White, and Mr. McGregor," he said during a UFC 202 media call.
"They brought the sport from nothing to something, and I brought it up to a $4 billion price tag."
But what happens now that the Fertitta brothers are exiting the company as majority owners and Lorenzo Fertitta is relinquishing his day-to-day duties?
Quite simply, McGregor isn't all that worried about the future, he's plotting it.
