Joe Molloy: Conor McGregor's true persona re-emerges after all the hollow posturing

I was barely aware of McGregor when I first met him back in early 2013 in a Newstalk studio. Frankly he blew us away.
Aged 24, he was fresh on the UFC scene after his debut and we encountered an utterly compelling mix of charisma and energy and self-assuredness.
