Conor McGregor discusses post-fight plans
Conor McGregor has revealed he’s used his vast wealth to establish businesses so that he and his family are taken care of for long after he’s retired.
“Athletic life is short right?” the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion asked. “As cruel as it sounds no-one really cares about the athlete post-career.
“I mean it’s as simple as that and that’s not just fighting it’s in any sport.
“So, I have studied many athletes’ careers both in combat sport and in professional sport and just analyzed it.
“I saw the do’s and the don’t and things that can create an afterlife in the game. For me, I’ve just gone down things I’m passionate about.
“I went down the fight game because I’m passionate about it – I wouldn’t have reached the levels I’ve reached in the fight game without having passion for it. And the whiskey game, the fashion game you know.”
