Phelps is now famous to sporting novelty events such as the one when he’s racing a ‘shark’ as part of a Discovery Channel show earlier this year.
Being only 29, the Dublin native UFC star has admitted to have plenty of fighting years ahead of him adding also his future plans are to get involved in the famous Irish whiskey market with his own tipple called ‘Notorious’. Of course, if the price is right and the offer is made, McGregor could even return back into the boxing ring.
“I’m young, I’m fresh and I’m ready,” McGregor added. “Right now I’m a free agent. I love a good fight and tonight was a good fight. I can’t tell you exactly what’s next but something will be next.”
“I’ve already been raising the MMA (mixed martial arts) cheques. I’m still going to be raising the MMA cheques when I go back there,” he added.
