“I may be a conceited motherf***er.” – Conor McGregor justifies not using a stunt double in his future film’s action sequences.


After the completion of the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, Conor McGregor is anticipated to make a comeback in 2023. (TUF). He is likely to face Michael Chandler, his TUF rival coach, in his comeback fight after losing for the second time in a row to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 and injuring his leg in the process.

With Golden Globe winner Jake Gyllenhaal, McGregor will also make his acting debut in the 2023 adaptation of the classic movie “Road House”. At the ceremonial weigh-ins for UFC 285 Gyllenhaal also just filmed a segment with veteran UFC fighter Jay Hieron. The future movie’s filming included participation from UFC president Dana White, play-by-play announcer Jon Anik, other event staff members, and in-person spectators.

Conor McGregor recently admitted to Robbie Fox that he did all of his own stunts for the Road House movie. When asked why he didn’t utilise a stunt double, he disclosed:

“I was performing my own tricks. I may be an egotistical motherfer, but when I saw the stunt double, I thought, “That motherfker doesn’t look like me.” I believed him to be a kind man; nevertheless, I’m not sure. I had to stop him from doing anything.”

Conor McGregor declares his desire for consistency and that he wants “100 more bouts.”

Since suffering a broken leg in a first-round Knockout loss to Dustin Poirier in their trilogy fight in July 2021, Conor McGregor hasn’t competed. The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Season 31 filming is about to wrap up, which means McGregor’s anxiously awaited comeback is just around the corner. When the Irishman is permitted to compete by USADA, Michael Chandler, his rival coach, is anticipated to oppose him. After defeating Eddie Alvarez to win his second UFC championship at UFC 205 more than six years ago, McGregor has not been as reliable as he once was. In his prime years of 2015 and 2016, McGregor fought three times a year in the octagon.

Conor McGregor intends to dispel this idea and come back stronger with consistency as his main goal. McGregor said in the aforementioned interview with Robbie Fox:

“I want 100 battles. I wish for 100 additional bouts. I’m attempting to be consistent. I’ve been dealing with this on, off, on, off crap due to combat politics, injuries, and everyday life for far too long. It does occur. It is God’s strategy. Everything of it is God, so I accept and comprehend it. But I’m excited and hopeful that I can get a solid consecutive run of matches.”

“I have a tonne of thrilling fights. I have a few rivalries. There are men climbing and men in other divisions that are thought to be the best. I could have a tonne of fights, and I look forward to each and every one of them.
