"UFC featherweight Conor McGregor has not only stormed the rankings at 145 pounds while putting every fighter on notice in the last year, but he's also managed to become one of the most prolific talkers in the entire sport. From his first appearance in Sweden where he finished Marcus Brimage in just 67 seconds and then became the star of the post-fight press conference where he talked openly about being on social welfare just days before winning a massive 'Knockout of the Night' bonus, McGregor has been a quote machine since the day he signed with the UFC.

"10: 'I didn't even grapple to get a brown belt! I must be the best brown belt on Earth!'
"Following McGregor's win over Dustin Poirier at UFC 178, his coach John Cavanaugh awarded him his brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu despite the fact that the fight never even came close to hitting the ground and his victory came by way of knockout. No wonder this Irishman believes he's so good!" Read the full list of quotes
