New video details how incredibly accurate Conor McGregor's predictions have been

“You can call me Mystic Mac because I predict these things.”

MAKING BOLD PREDICTIONS is one of the things that has made Conor McGregor such a unique and entertaining athlete.

McGregor has never been reluctant to forecast the future and, in the majority of cases so far, the UFC interim featherweight champion has been right.

That’s backed up in a video released yesterday, which features footage of McGregor telling the world of his intentions from as far back as 2008.

“My name is Conor McGregor and I live in Lucan. I’m an up-and-coming fighter and, without a doubt, you will see me in the UFC in the near future.”

The video also features McGregor predicting the outcome of his fights against Diego Brandao, Dustin Poirier and Chad Mendes, as well as expressing his belief that Jose Aldo would pull out of the fight if the pair were ever scheduled to meet.

McGregor even told Mendes that he “can’t even pass guard” — something which ultimately lost the fight for the American in the second round of their UFC 189 main event last month in Las Vegas.
