Conor McGregor went through a tear in Europe’s Cage Warriors, which resulted in a UFC contract. He plans to leave an impression in his debut for the UFC.
“I know what I can do, my team knows what I can do, and I know I’m going to go out there and steal the show,” said McGregor to ESPN. “There’s no doubt about it.”
He entered Cage Warriors on a four fight win streak. Of his four Cage Warriors opponents, he beat them all in less than two rounds. He was their lightweight and welterweight champion at the time of signing a UFC deal. He vacated both titles.
He fights on the preliminary end of UFC on FUEL TV 9 and takes on Marcus Brimage. Since signing a UFC contract, Brimage has won three decisions.
The card hails from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Sweden. It’s on April 6 and headlined with Alexander Gustafsson vs. Gegard Mousasi.
