Conor McGregor gave Molly McCann ‘poetic advice’ on dealing with newfound fame
British MMA star Molly McCann called out Conor McGregor for some advice when she was struggling to deal with her newfound fame.
‘Meatball’ is more popular than ever after its consecutive knockout wins over Luana Carolina and Hannah Goldy at the UFC shows in London earlier this year.
A woman of the people, McCann wants to give every fan some of her time but has been struggling to adjust to her recent rise in success.
Therefore, she resorted to the Infamous One who gave her some fame tips before her fight with Erin Blanchfield at UFC 281 in New York on Saturday night.
“I texted him saying, ‘How do you deal with this? Because you can explode and then you can [really] Explodes. McCann told the media assembled before UFC 281: “
“[Conor McGregor] He was just like, “When you’re at the gym, it’s just the gym. Don’t let anyone else in. Keep everyone outside. Always remember it’s just a fight. You’re a cage warrior, that’s what we are.”
After referring to his time with the Cage Warriors in London, McGregor predicted McCann would take off UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko and said a few other things she used for inspiration.
“He said some crazy things about, ‘Valentina’s going to hit Mac’ and all that stuff. It was so poetic, and it was so beautiful,” McCann added.

“My partner, Ellis, printed it out and put it up for a sign at MSG. It’s in my front room. So, every day, if I’m struggling or feeling good, I don’t get ahead of myself, get a big fat head, and walk around with my ego.”
“To stay grounded and realize that I am only here to win. And what is left of it, external factors are all.”
McCann and McGregor first became friends when she visited a Dublin bar with Paddy Pemblet after their victory at UFC London on July 23.
The 32-year-old revealed at the time, Mystic Mac had nothing but kind words for her and now it seems that they have kept in touch ever since and have become solid friends.
The Everton-mad scouser, like everyone else in MMA, is eagerly anticipating McGregor’s return to the Octagon which is set to take place in 2023 after his long injury.
He will return at Welterweight and try to become the first three-weight champion in UFC history after previously winning the Featherweight and Lightweight belts.
