“I think it’s a matter of how much punishment he [Conor McGregor] is willing to take to get that one shot,” Mark said.

“And based on what I’ve seen he’s not going to phone it in, he’s going to put it all out there. He’s not scared of getting hit or losing and the odds are not in his favour.”

The Ted actor, however, thinks Conor McGregor’s odds at a successful film career are much higher.

“I think he’s got a long career in film, he’s just got to make sure he doesn’t take too much punishment in the ring.”
