UFC featherweight Conor McGregor (14-2) might be on the shelf with a knee injury, but that doesn't mean he's not out there making his presence known. McGregor recently received an honorary lifetime membership from the Commerce & Economics Society at the University College of Dublin in Ireland, and Fergus O'Farrell of Fight Hounds was on hand to get an interview with him.
The Irish fighter discusses how his knee injury is healing (he even offers up a demonstration), how much he wants to return to training, the mentality of fighting and how he doesn't take anything personally, and a big Christmas trip he has lined up. McGregor should be ready to return to the octagon around the middle of 2014, depending on how the knee rehab goes. You can check out the interview video below, along with the videos of the C&E society ceremony.
