On the record

“I’ll give Mendes — I think the two of them are similar — four minutes of the first round… Like I said, the opponent is an illusion. The shots I’ve visualised landing on Jose, I visualise landing on Chad. After four minutes of the first round, Chad will be unconscious.”

Conor McGregor on his upcoming fight.
