prove them all wrong If I could get four of you to understandit's just not gonna matter when people, I mean, I love when people- I don't evenwanna tell you I'm gonna say it very clear, I just- Stefan get very focusedhere because I want to really deliver this with all the drama that it deservesand I like when people put me down. I get off on when people put me down.Nothing is more interesting to me than to prove all of you wrong.I love the people that think I'm a huckster or I've got some hidden agendaor I'm not that good or
prove them all wrong


I won't be that great or I think too big of myself or mydad had a liquor store and that's the only reason I'm successful or I gotlucky or that the- that the- that the- that the- that- show me, like pleaseplease please, continue to judge me and underestimate me because it's the onlydriver I have and that's how I'm wired. I think one of my greatest inspirations orthings that I would feed off of basically was just obviously people not believingand the cloud of doubt they kind of- I felt hung over my head and wanted tojust prove everybody wrong. You know what  Imean there's so many people right now that are not doing what they love becausethey're worried about what other people think or what other people sayespecially your inner family,

prove them all wrong we've talked about this at length. I'm verypassionate about this. I'm so grateful that I don't give a crap what anybodythinks of me. When you're- you're 15 now. When you're 51 or when you're 91, you're gonnabe stunned how little you care. How little it mattered and this includesyour parents and your siblings and even your children. This is an intense thing.This is a very intense thing and at the end of the day it's not gonna matter andyou have to love yourself first and feel good and complete with yourself first soas a 15 year old, I would do what I did as a 15 year old, which is just startbuilding those skills and not listen to your parents and not listen to yourteachers and not listen to your friends. Respect itbut don't let anybody,

anybody impose their way on you. It's you. You're withyourself and you've got to make yourself happy first. They said I couldn’t. They said I wouldn’t.They said they didn’t believe in me. They said I couldn’t because of my circumstances. I couldn’t because of my past… Because it hadn’t been done before You might have had it tough, you might have had it real tough – but it ain't getting any better if you LIVE there. uses the pain as their REASON WHY they must change. The use their pain as STRENGTH..TRY ME!” When things don’t go their way,

they KEEP MOVING FORWARD! Tom Brady's on the downside of hiscareer and- and if you asked me if he'll ever get to another Superbowl, I have oneanswer. No way, no how. Does he wow you throwing the ball? No. There was some otherguys that could shoot it and he had just an okay arm. At the Combine when you watchedTom you saw this tall, gangly looking kid looked like he haven't ever seen a weight room, ran a 5-2 something, one of the slowest quarterbacks in the Combine. Thisis the draft report on you. know? A lot of people don't believe in you.

Hasbeen- is obvious by you know six other quarterbacks taken and 198 other picks andI always felt, you know what? Once I get my shot, I'm gonna be ready. I'm gonna really take advantage of that. It's gonna be a great comeback guys. It's gonna be a great comeback. Hey! Take it to another level alright? Michigan is continuing to try to get Henson more and more opportunities to go out there and get experience because his up side is so much higher than Tom Brady's. I never played football until my freshmanyear and as a freshman, I was the backup quarterback on a team that was 0-8.He wasn't deemed good enough to play one offensive play as a quarterback. Therewere seven guys on the Depth Chart when I got there. The only reason why I playedmy sophomore year was because the kid who was the freshman quarterback stopped playing. He said I'm not playing football anymore. So I was like I guess I'm gonna play and I always had a decent arm,

but I just really took to the game. Against Penn State, Michigan trailed by ten in the final minutes. Reaches for the touchdown, Michigan and the legend of the Comeback Kid was born. He was skinny, slow right? Too pretty tobe a football player but he was smarter than everyone and he studied nightand day, day and night. Nobody works harder than Tom Brady. We were led tobelieve that he's gonnna be drafted, possibly second round, prove them all wrong probably third round. You see,you know so-and-so get picked and then there's nine more picks gone until oneteam that you think was interested...

you know that's- you get pretty anxious. It washard. It was just a tough day you know? I justremember being there with my mom and dad and- sorry about that.In my estimation, he's the greatest of all time. I said I know who you are, you're our sixthround draft choice and I always remember he looked me, likea laser, eye to eye and he said that's right and I'm the best decisionthis organization has ever made. He's not the biggest, he was never the strongesthe was never the fastest, he was overlooked, he went in the sixth round, so withthat being said, every- all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposedto have, they overlooked with him because it was burning from the inside of him.He's a winner. He has a big heart and he doesn't like to lose. Ready, looks, looks, looks... fires down the field, clock 35:30, touchdown. Great job by Tom Brady escaping and then having the presence of mind to look upfield. Like when is this dude gonna give up? He ain't never gonna quit. Never. So until the triple zero's hit the o'clock you gonna geteverything Tom Brady has.

I played against one of the great ones.I'm talking about the greatest of great. I think he's one ofthe best in the history of this league. To me, what separates really good playersfrom great players? Executing well under pressure. The biggest games, the greateststage and I think that's what playing quarterback is all about. Brady tonight is playing in his seventh SuperBowl, the most of any player in Super Bowl history will be gunning for arecord-setting fifth win. I can not believe what I'm witnessing so itis on to overtime. To beat this team and to get down 28:3there's just a lot of mental toughness by our team and we're all gonna rememberthis for the rest of our life. How many times have you heard that you can't do this,

you can't do that, and it's never been done before? I hear this all the time. As a matter of fact, I love it when someone says that no one has ever done this before, because then when I do it that means that I'mthe first one that has done it and I said to my family I wantto be a bodybuilding champion. Now, you can imagine how that went over in myhome in Austria. My parents, they couldn't believe it. They would have beenjust happy if I would have become a police officer like my father, or marriedsomeone like Heidi, had a a bunch of kids and ran around likethe von Trapp family in Sound of Music. That's what my family had in mind for me,but something else burned inside me. Something burned inside me. I wanted tobe different; I was determined to be unique. I was driven to think big and todream big. Everyone else thought that I was crazy. ycle champion or a skiingchampion or a soccer champion? would never have come to America.

ful four kids, I would have never done Terminator, and I wouldn't be So I never listen that, "You can't." I always listen to myself and say, "Yes, you can." I was anapprentice plumber I did a year and that and it just, it just wasn't forme you know. It's either -  it's either All or Nothing in this, in the game Imean you have to. If you're not training twice a day, if you're notdedicated, you're not gonna go anywhere.

So after that fight when I lost andI'm looking at all these people and they're all celebrating my demise and saying I'm done and this um it certainly lit a fire under my belly. I'm a professional MMA fighter with a recordof four and one. I'm an up-and-comingfighter and without a doubt you will see me on the UFC in the near future. Nobodyknows what they're in for. Everybody's writing me off, everyone hasthese little, you know but they're gonna be in shock, make no mistake about it.Trust me, I’m going to stop Floyd, and you’re all Every single person doubted me, every single fighter that doubted me. Doubt me now. The new interim UFC featherweight champion of the world, the notorious Conor McGregor. Ladies and gentlemen, the reigning, defending, 155 pound champion of the UFC, the notorious Conor McGregor. I believe he'll be unconscious insideone round. Just throwing this out there which would be a mega fight,what about fighting Floyd Mayweather one day, you and he in a ring together. In aboxing? In a boxing match. I'm open to discussion, come at me but I hold a kid Ihold the key, it's me who holds the key to the fight game. I am open-minded. I'm open to discussion.

I love competition. I love fighting. I recognize the fact that, tomake that fight, if the fans were interested and wanted to see it obviously theywould. It would be a billion dollar fight surely. I'm all about them numbersGareth, so I would certainly do that no problem. When you're chasing your dream and whenyou're, when you're working hard chasing something you love and completelydedicated it just, it just happens. You don't, you don't you can't really no - noticeit you know.. even still to this day.

I'm in an amazing position in my life but I'mstill, I'm still walking like I'm not. I'm still walking like I'm not in this position.Absolutely. I'm still walking like none of this is even, you know what I mean? Yeah yeah. It's just, it's just something I love to do and I just keep pushing and keep working hard, I can'tpinpoint an exact moment for you but - yep if anything, I always felt like it washappening way back then and now it is happening but now I almost feel like it's not happening, you know what I mean and I want to push to something else. I'm alwaysstriving to push forward so.

Yeah I don't just knock them out Ipicked the round John, yeah I said this, I'm sure y'alls a probably all thinking inyour head, this guy is talking absolute drivel. He's not gonna do what he sayshe's gonna do, yalls probably all sitting there thinking that, but now here we areagain and I done what I said I was gonna do. I feed off this. Saying - putting it out there for the world tosee and then going out there and doing it. There's nobetter feeling in the world than that and it's as easy as that. Say what you'regonna do and go and do it. I've been listening to him laugh my whole career.Never laughing. What, an Irish man win a, win a Cage Warriors World Title, hell no.

Are you serious? An Irishman. An Irishman? Win a fight in the UFC? Hell no. Laugh. Laughs allaround. An Irish - okay, you gotta win! Now he wants to win a world title? Helll no! He'sall talk. He's all hype. He's a joke. Laughter all around at the Joker. Then the Jokergoes and wins the world tile. Now he wants to win a second world title. Listen, I've - the sound of laughter, and the sound of doubtmotivates me. So, I'm enjoying that. I seekthat. I don't feel no doubt or - I don't feel no I don't feel that, going to fight in any of these, or the UFC. Right now. They need you to rise up. Right now they're down there. I've got thissituation where people are truly doubting me, like they doubted me at the very verybeginning and that's motivated me. That's what's gonna drive me to the gym when Ineed to go to the gym to put in that work to get that win, so, that's where I'm at right now.

So you don't think you can?You don't think you can do it? Think you can! Know you can. Things don't come easyYou gotta find it, whatever it is, what's in yourself Don't quit.  Don't quit.  Don't quit. So just because you fail,don't mean you are a failure. Alright ? So I just need you to do me a huge favorI just need you keep going, try to make that one different decision to not maybe for my last one. Is don't let the distractions distract youI know real simple but don't let the distractions distract you. Failure is not an option, when you go into it, I want you to go in everything you do, listen to me, as if failure is not an option, alright? It's not a button, it's not a label, it does not exist!You can do it! Once you have that magnificent obsession, once you question the impossible then when somebody like that, tells youYou can't do something, you have chosen the wrong one.

To tell something like that to.I will show you, I will show you what I can do. I will show you, I will turn your "I can't" "I will never", "I won't", "It's impossible", I will turn it around and I will show you that I can do anything! you
