Romero gloats over Conor, the mystic man, saying, “The fact that someone like Conor McGregor, who made mixed martial arts and UFC history by becoming the first fighter to hold two belts at the same time. For someone like him to recognize you, it validates every kind of effort that you make. Every stride that you take. And it makes you want to perform even better to keep making him proud.” via Ariel Helwani on the MMA hour.
