UFC featherweight world champion, “The Notorious” Conor McGregor , returns to action on August 20, as he looks to avenge his loss to Nate Diaz  at UFC 202 inside Las Vegas’ T Mobile Arena. Ahead of the much-anticipated welterweight bout, we look back at some of McGregor’s most iconic quotes, which have helped transform him into one of the sport’s most polarizing athletes.
