McGregor says that he’s a romantic for putting his “body on the line for [his] woman!” While Devlin says, “I’ve never really thought about [McGregor getting hurt] before! When I first met him, though, he didn’t have cauliflower ears, and I remember thinking: “Oh God, what if he gets cauliflower ears, that would be terrible!” He has them now and I don’t remember him without them.”

Devlin told the magazine, “He’s always said that it was for us and our future and that he’ll have us in the best of houses and the best of cars; I’ve always believed that! I always knew that this is where he would be. We believe in the Law of Attraction and we’ve always believed that he would make it to the UFC one day. Now that he has, he’s proved me right. I’ve always supported him, so I’m glad that it’s come to fruition for him, and for us, really. We’re going to make a living out of this now and it’s great! It makes me go a bit gooey inside when he says that he’s working hard for me.”
