UFC Champion Conor McGregor has today defended an Instagram picture of himself reading an upside down newspaper, with the absolute legend revealing it was actually an Australian publication.
The picture, which clearly shows Conor sitting on a private jet while intently reading the paper, went viral on social media over the weekend, with several online news sources mocking him as it was upside down, stating he wasn’t reading, or was in fact unable to read the broadsheet.
“Who’s laughing now?” the 28-year-old later posted, “yis all thought Mystic Mac couldn’t read, when in fact I’m fluent in Australian, American, British and Canadian languages. I can read side-ways, backwards, upside down, inside out, anagrammatically; whatever way it is presented before my very sharp and focused eyes. No one can read like I can”.
The astounding revelation into his unique powers comes just one week after losing his UFC featherweight belt, having previously taken the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in November.
“My jump up in weight to the next division may have lost my old belt, but I have since gained fantastically fast reading abilities,” McGregor added, “My brain is faster, sharper and performs better than any other brain. After I beat Floyd Mayweather in the boxing, I may become a scientist or something clever like that”.
Other career paths opening up to The Notorious include becoming an astronaut for NASA and possible UN ambassador for the world.
