A “buzzing” Conor McGregor has declared “someone's getting bust-up when I get back” as he found inspiration In UFC newcomer Ian Garry’s spectacular debut at Madison Square Garden last weekend. 

McGregor’s fellow Irishman scored a dramatic first-round KO victory over Jordan Williams on the UFC 268 prelims which prompted an excited Notorious to insist he’s going to be part of the “takeover part two”.

In a series of Twitter voice notes, McGregor, who is recovering still from a broken leg, said: "Ian [Garry], I wanna say, that's a tremendous finish for you.

"The step back, back paw and all you throw.

"My God, man. What the f**k? Like, I'm all over the place after that. You know, I love it, mate. I f***ing love it.

"The takeover part two. I'm in on that takeover part two. You've got my comeback for that. I'll be back for that.

"I'm all over that takeover part two. F*****g hell. Ian, I appreciate the respect you're showing me in there.

McGregor, who stayed up late to watch Garry announce himself to the world, sad he took inspiration from his countryman's post-fight interview after his maiden UFC win.

"At this time for me, coming back from this injury, that means a lot to me.

"This is probably the toughest couple months to ever happen in my entire life.

"To see you go out there and to pay the respect like that and go out and do that.

"To crack him with the step, step back paw. It's just - there's something f***ing mad about that for me.

"And I'm buzzing about over that."

He added: "Fair play to you, bro. I'm buzzing for you, I'm absolutely buzzing for you.

"I'm bleedin' just buzzing altogether.

"Sitting here with this 'f***in' poxy injury, can't spar - it's doing me head in, man.

"And you're out here giving me this little buzz man. I appreciate it, mate.

"The takeover part two, I f*****g love it, yeah.

"What other Irish fighter is out there and now in this globe who's gonna join us in this takeover part two?

"Because I tell you what, I'm coming back and I'm getting in on that takeover part two action.

"Someone's getting bust-up when I get back. I'm gonna burst someone when I get back."

Garry (23) revealed his own joy in motivating the man who had inspired him to compete in mixed martial arts.

“We were listening and I’m laughing, there’s a big smile on my face,” he told the MMA Hour.

“And it was just the fact that, even in that, I could feel that Conor felt motivated by what I had just said.

"He was saying, like, ‘I respect that so much,’ in a sense of like, ‘In my hardest time, I’m coming back from an injury, this has given me motivation.’

"And he was like, ‘I’m part of that [Irish] takeover too.’"

Although McGregor has a long road to recovery, Garry has ambitions of sharing a card with Ireland's first UFC champion.

He continued: "I’m like, ‘Hey, let’s get on it, Conor. Let’s get on it.’

"Ireland will explode if you put me and him on a card together. So I’m in."
