In an interview with “The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show” podcast on Absolute Radio in the UK, Noel Gallagher said he wanted to meet UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. Here are highlights:

On first becoming aware of McGregor: “I was first aware of him when we were on tour in Ireland. We had a night off, and we went to a pub one night in Cork. The pub was mobbed. … If he’s on, I’ll watch it the next day (on) repeat. … He’s a dude. He’s an absolute dude. He makes me cry laughing when he’s (trash talking).”

On the fight with Mayweather: “I was at Russell Brand’s wedding that day. Russell kicked us all out at midnight … we came back to London … and then as it was going on, I’m thinking, ‘It’s taking him 10 rounds! It’s unbelievable.’ I was willing him to win – not that I don’t like Floyd Mayweather. I love Floyd Mayweather, and we can all look back in years to come and say we lived through that era.”

On McGregor’s personality: “Charisma will get you a long way. If you’ve got talent and charisma, the world is your oyster, and that guy’s got it. It’s like, ‘Wow. What planet have you come from?’ It’s unbelievable. I’d love to meet him.”
