In this episode of the Gray Area Podcast, Maggie Gray welcomes Sports Illustrated assistant managing editor Jon Wertheim into the podcast studio to talk about his cover story on UFC superstar Conor McGregor. They discuss his aura of invincibility and whether or not he can be beaten in the cage, his absolute dedication to his craft, if his brash personality is real or an act, if he can avoid the trappings of fame and much more. They also talk about Ronda Rousey’s future, the revelation that she considered suicide after losing to Holly Holm and her star power compared to McGregor.
