Conor McGregor loves to talk a big game, even when it comes to something he claims not to care about.
It’s fitting that his GQ feature is chock full of moments of moments of braggadocio and absurdity. After claiming his knockout power comes from his genitals, he later implies he’d like to use his genitals for their intended purpose with the Kardashians.
McGregor mentioned searching for Khloé Kardashian while in Malibu while GQ’s Zach Baron drives around with him on the road to Malibu.
He says he’s been working like a motherfucker all week. “This is a $2 million trip for me. One week, 2 million.” He’s earned a break. A rest. That’s why we’re headed out to Malibu now, where he’s rented a giant stone house by the sea. “I’m finished.” His only goal is to relax. “Maybe I’ll search for Khloé’s big fat ass—she’s been floating around Malibu. I don’t give a fuck about them. I just like to see them in the flesh.”
You mean … the Kardashians?
“Yeah, just see what the big fat asses on them look like.”
Just to … admire them from a distance?
“Not about admiring. Admire? Never. What’s the saying? Never put the pussy on a pedestal, my friend. I just want to see it. I want to see them.”
Um … OK.
Later in the piece, he states that he’s not a celebrity, just a person who became famous for beating the hell out of people for money.
“People think I’m a celebrity. I’m not a celebrity. I break people’s faces for money and bounce,” McGreggor later said while driving around in a Rolls Royce.
Fashion and status, however, clearly mean something to McGregor. He frequents Dolce & Gabbana and a large section of the piece describes a financial revelation a very tan rich man once gave him while in the store. The Kardashians, as much as he doesn’t “give a fuck” about them, represent another extension of that gilded world. If he didn’t care, he’d mention seeking out some random attractive person in a city full of them.
The only way to class this thing up is to call the magazine it was written in “Gentleman’s Quarterly,” but that hasn’t been its name for a while now. It’s just a weird section of a weird feature, but I guess that’s fitting for Conor McGregor—the most talked about celebrity that gets paid to break people’s faces for money.
