The Notorious is unflappable inside and outside of the octagon but is nervous about becoming a father.

"I'm crapping my jocks I'm not going to lie. I don't even know what way to take it, it's going to mess with my head because I don't want to bring a child into anything like this," he added.

"I don't want no little celebrity type sh**e, I hate that. I don't want my family to be like that.

"That's a little thing that's in my head. I'm going to have this baby, take a little time and see what way I feel after that.

Asked when it's due, he added: "March. Is it March?

"It's not May is it? I thought it was March... what the f**k."

McGregor also revealed that he hasn't spoken to anyone in the UFC since it was sold and that he wants part ownership of the UFC as part of any new deal.
