Conor McGregor: If I fought Jesus Christ, I would 'whoop his ass' (Video)

If Jesus Christ can't beat Conor McGregor, then what hope does Jose Aldo have?

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim featherweight champion will try to unify the 145-pound titles when he takes on the Brazilian kingpin at the upcoming UFC 194 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on Dec. 12, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Naturally, McGregor thinks he's going to prevail; but then again, "Notorious" is convinced he can beat any man.

Living or dead!

"Me versus Jesus in the Octagon? I tell you what, there's not a man alive that can beat me," McGregor told TMZ. "But Jesus ain't alive so I don't fucking know, maybe he can come back from the dead, I don't know. I'd still whoop his ass."

That's not the kind of fight prediction that will go over well with this guy.
