Conor McGregor revealed his dream to host the 'McGregor F.A.S.T World Games' in the near future involving the best athletes and competitors from around the world. F.A.S.T is the UFC fighter's latest business venture in the health-tech space which will allow consumers to follow a customised health and exercise routine from their own homes.
Speaking about his latest venture to Parimatch CEO Sergey Portnov, McGregor revealed his dream of hosting a World Games:
"I am going to work on something that is a dream of mine, host the McGregor F.A.S.T World Games. The games would involve bike-hill racing, white-collar matches at the end of it to decide the winner.
"There are many exciting games that we can create under the McGregor F.A.S.T program, be it long-endurance, be it short, or heavy hill sprints on mountain bikes, ie, that training I have engaged in. I want to make them into competitions and then host the games somewhere in a beautiful part of the world.
"I want to have amazing athletes and competitors compete and bring people on board, do something good. I want to align all the people who partner with me and change lives for the better."
