- UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is currently in Las Vegas, and he just happened to run into an "old friend." McGregor snapped a picture with former UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta on Wednesday night. In the past, McGregor mentioned both Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta quite often when talking about his contract with the UFC.
I came up under Lorenzo Fertitta and the Fertitta regime. Nobody in the history of the fight game has come up as fast and as young as I have. I now, at 28 years of age, have my eyes firmly set on the 'highest paid fighter' and 'highest earning athlete' accolades. Understand and respect what you are witnessing here. Because not one of you can do nothing to stop it.
