9 things everyone could learn from Conor McGregor

We could all live our lives a little bit more like Dublin’s best-dressed trash-talker.

1. Hard work beats natural talent

“There’s no talent here, this is hard work,” McGregor has recently said. “This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all equals as human beings.

“You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that’s that.”
