4: 'We’re not just here to take part, we’re here to take over' | UFC Dublin | July 2014
The quote that has become synonymous with the Irishman’s path up the UFC record books. Following his crippling knockout over Diego Brandao in the main event of the legendary UFC Dublin, McGregor took to the mic as the thunderous Dublin crowd erupted around him.
Being the fourth Irishman to have his hand raised on the card, the future champion sang the praises of teammate, exclaiming they were the future of the sport.
“It was a clean sweep for the Irish. I said it last year, we’re not here just to take part – we’re here to take over.”
Now you can’t even show a promo of McGregor without including that soundbite.
