In one of the most boss moves in mixed martial arts (MMA) history, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight superstar Conor McGregor held his own pay-per-view (PPV) interview earlier today (Sat., Jan. 28, 2017) live from Manchester, England. McGregor sat down with MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani for roughly an hour and discussed Floyd Mayweather Jr., McGregor Promotions, a stake in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), becoming a father, Nate Diaz and much more. Check out the comprehensive list of the most controversial and telling things that came out of McGregor's mouth.

Eddie Alvarez fight at UFC 205: I made an error in the first round. I got greedy. That's the only reason he survived the first round.

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson UFC 209 interim title fight: They're not on my level. And f*ck the Mayweathers.

Roger Mayweather: Roger Mayweather says most people don't know sh*t about boxing. Well, Conor McGregor says most people don't know sh*t about fighting.

UFC: At the end of the day, my shadow looms large over the entire FW division, over the entire LW division, over the entire UFC.

Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) fine: I'm going to fly over there and fix it, get my boxing license, and then we'll see where the f*ck Floyd's at!

Vince McMahon money walk: Vince McMahon must be pissed. I don't give a f*ck about Vince Mahon. I stole that walk and now that walk is mine.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.: I have my eyes on one thing right now, and that's Floyd Mayweather.

Possibility of Mayweather fight: That fight is more than just being explored. There's a lot of steps, but it's the fight to make. It's the fight I want.

Going up against UFC on FOX 23: There's more people here than currently at the UFC event right now. That should tell you everything you need to know.

Ronda Rousey's UFC 207 media blackout: I didn't give a f*ck.

Nate Diaz: Now you're at the back of the queue. But I'll get to Nate. Me and Nate will throw down again for the 155lb title.

Anderson Silva's callout: What's Anderson talking about? He keeps mentioning my name. Look, I'll fight any one of them. Make sure the numbers are right.

Georges St-Pierre's involvement with MMA Athletes Association (MMAAA): The only reason you're standing in the middle of that union is because you couldn't get the deal you wanted.

Appearing in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 2017: Never say never.

UFC 205's big announcement: McGregor Promotions, but I decided against it at the last moment.

Having a baby boy: The only time my records will be broken is by my own spawn.

It was quite the interview from McGregor. A lot is up in the air, but he seems ready to get back into action, whether that's inside of the cage or the boxing ring.
