Video: UFC lightweight Conor McGregor interview on Ireland's ‘The Late Late Show'

Irish phenom Conor McGregor is riding high off his knockout of Marcus Brimage at UFC on FUEL TV 9, and due to his outstanding performance was recently welcomed as a guest to the world's longest running chat show, "The Late Late Show" with Ryan Tubridy.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Conor McGregor has become an overnight sensation since his memorable Octagon debut earlier this month at UFC on FUEL TV 9.

With his fresh and colorful personality, McGregor has taken UFC fans worldwide by storm following his first-round knockout of Marcus Brimage in Stockholm, Sweden.

As one of the UFC's first fully Irish fighters --and already the most successful one-- "Notorious" is breaking down barriers and getting a tremendous amount of exposure in his home country following his successful UFC debut.

The 24-year-old is becoming so popular; in fact, that he was recently a guest on "The Late Late Show," an extremely popular weekly Irish television program.

"The Late Late Show" is one of the most watch TV programs in the country and moreover, is the world's longest running chat show dating all the way back to the early 1960's.

McGregor, along with his friend and fellow Irish mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Cathal Pendred, appeared on the show for an extended interview with host Ryan Tubridy where they discussed McGregor's UFC debut, what's next for him, Irish MMA and much, much more.

An opponent for McGregor's next fight has not been named at this time; however, UFC officials have confirmed he will compete on the UFC's debut fight card on FOX Sports 1 this August.
