Conor McGregor won't care how he's seen by fellow UFC fighters, he just cares that he's seen and in that sense, he's doing an incredible job. At this rate there'll eventually be heavyweights trying to angle their way into fighting him one or another to get the payday that no one else in the men's division can currently secure.
McGregor is box-office. He's built a persona that other fighters can only dream of and he's made plenty of enemies, or at least faux-enemies, doing so. With that in mind, BT Sport had a rather interesting idea ahead of UFC 194
They gathered up the assembled fighters (and Dana White) and give them one word to describe Conor McGregor. The responses were mixed. Urijah Faber's response is a good indication that for all the verbal jibes, the Ultimate Fighter saw a bit of a friendship between the two coaches.
Jose Aldo's 'opponent' response is exactly what you'd expect from the champ. While Evan Dunham's 'from Scotland' suggestion is clearly a blatant attempt at trying to get a fight. You're going to have to try harder than that Evan.
