Conor McGregor made the kind of UFC impact most expected, as the former Cage Warriors multi-division champion finished Marcus Brimage.
Now, McGregor is set to make his U.S. debut, and he is expecting to put on the same kind of show. The Irish fighter will face Andy Ogle at UFC on FS1: Sonnen vs. Shogun in August from Boston.
“It makes no difference who I fight,” said McGregor, in an interview with the Independent. “It will be the same outcome: first round and it will be over. It’s not going past a minute. My U.S. debut, it’s going to be insane.”
The 24-year-old has earned nine consecutive victories, with all of them coming since 2011 and via finish. Seven of those have been in the first round, and McGregor believes he is right on track to become the greatest fighter ever.
“By the time I’m 30, I’ll be the pound-for-pound champion and I’ll be considered in the same light as Anderson Silva. That’s six years from now,” he said. “I’m doing this to secure my family’s future. I don’t have kids right now, but when I do decide to I want them to come into a good life.”
