Video of Conor McGregor on Conan O'Brien: 'Notorious' talks superstitious sex, ass-cheek tattoos, and dismantling Floyd Mayweather

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight No. 1 contender Conor McGregor was a guest on the Conan O'Brien show last Thursday night (July 2, 2015) to hype up his interim featherweight title fight against Chad Mendes in the UFC 189 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, which takes place on July 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

But they didn't spend a whole lot of time talking "Money."

Instead, the "Notorious" Irishman dished some dirt on his sex life, which unlike some mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters, does not impede his progress inside or outside the Octagon. In that way, he's a bit like UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

Let him bang, bro.

In addition, the subject of tattoos came up, since McGregor has a giant animal stamped on his bread basket (see it). "You always hear people talking about tattoos," he said. "It has this special meaning, but for me, I just like the way it looks. You hear people say they have a goldfish on their ass cheek and it's a symbol of hope."

Jack Tripper once got a tattoo on his ass that read The Love Butt. You can imagine the fun Larry Dallas had when he heard that!

Sorry, momentary 80s flashback.

Anyway, McGregor was on fire during his late-night appearance, where he also welcomed a super fight (cross-discipline, of course) against undefeated boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr., no stranger to Irish call outs.

"If you're asking would I like to fight Floyd, who would not like to dance around the ring for $180 million? I certainly know he would not want to step into my world, the world of pure unarmed combat where there is no limitations, but I would most certainly step into his world. I would certainly box him if the opportunity arose. Most certainly. There's no real fight in boxing left for Floyd anyway. After the Manny fight happened, there's no more real buzz. If you're looking for a fight that could generate interest, it must be across a match of different styles. I've said it before. I don't feel boxing is the style of fighting that could beat Floyd. But saying that, there are many, many forms of fighting that can beat him. So, if we were to get it on, I would most certainly dismantle him also."

Let's see how McGregor does against another form of fighting -- wrestling -- when he meets Mendes next week in "Sin City."
