McGregor, 33, is one for a flash purchase these days, and loves to show off his collection of yachts, properties, watches and suits.

Prior to his world titles, he dreamed of buying a ‘mansion’ for his mother and a series of cars for girlfriend Dee Devlin.

He has succeeded on both counts.

In the clip, which was recorded in 2013 between his wins over Max Holloway and Diego Brandao, McGregor summed up his ambitions – and what it would cost to achieve them.

He said: “I’ve lost my mind doing this game, like Vincent van Gogh.

“He dedicated his life to his art and lost his mind in the process – that’s happened to me.

“But f*** it… when that gold belt is around my waist, when my mother has a big mansion, my girlfriend has a different car for every day of the week, my kids’ kids have everything they ever want…

“Then it will pay. Then I’m happy I lost my mind. I’ll die a crazy old man.”

Prior to his rematch with Dustin Poirier on Fight Island back in January, McGregor had these quotes put to him nearly eight years on, and was asked to reflect on how they made him feel.

He said: “It’s been some ride, I’ve got it done.

I wouldn’t want it to be any other way

“I’m up here, mad as a brush. I’ve been through it all my friend.

“I appreciate that and it’s been a wild ride for me, it’s not been easy at times but, what a life – and I tell you what, I wouldn’t want it to be any other way.

“I’m very excited to be back here, I just feel invigorated.”

Since those words, McGregor has endured a difficult year inside the octagon.

He would suffer defeat via second round TKO to Poirier, before losing again when the pair faced off in July – suffering a horrendous fractured tibia in the process.

Mystic Mac is still as hungry for success as ever, however, and even shared a bizarre clip of himself staring down old foe Holloway through his telly as the American was about to face Yair Rodriguez at the weekend.

UFC president Dana White has played down a rematch between the pair, while former title challenger Chael Sonnen branded McGregor a ‘rich little weirdo’ for the video he posted.
