He’s not like a standout human. Like this the dude that gets his a** kicked, breaks shit, is calling your wife a w***e whilst like still sitting on the ground after a loss. This the dude that punches a 65-year-old man in a bar. This the dude that throws a dolly through a bus, attempting to do what exactly I don’t f*****g know,” said Logan Paul.

Conor McGregor made an after-fight Instagram post, quoting Tony Montana from the movie Scarface. Logan Paul said on his podcast that he agreed with his caption on the Instagram post.

The former champ seemed cool, calm, and collected after being released from the hospital. Fans shared in the Instagram post’s comments that they were happy to see him motivated and recovering.

In his latest video, Conor McGregor confirmed the journey is far from over for him. He shared he will take it step-by-step and aims to build himself back up from scratch. Dana White also shared that McGregor will return in a year’s time.

 

Speaking about the surgery on his leg, McGregor said that he now has an “unbreakable” leg and also compared himself to Arnold Schwarzenegger from the Terminator movie series.

Now I’ve got a titanium rod down the knee to the ankle and the doctors said it’s unbreakable.
