7. 'These custom-made suits ain’t cheap' | UFC Boston | Aug. 2013
While many fighters like to point to McGregor’s win at UFC Dublin (more on that later) as the moment he captivated the fighting community, I personally point to his post-fight press conference at UFC Boston in Aug. 2013 as the birth of his charismatic alter-ego.
Donning one of his signature three pieces suits to go along with a gold pocket watch, McGregor, who was actually featured on the night’s undercard, took to the mic to hold court for the media
“These custom-made suits aren’t cheap. This solid gold pocket watch, three people died making this watch. I need to put people away. I need those big fights. I’m going to end up in debt pretty fast.”
And just like that, Money Mac was born.
