The 23-year-old stayed in the octagon following his victory and he did not hold back when discussing his aspirations.
In a voice and style that many think was a homage to the 'Champ-champ,' Gallagher said: "I come here the best I've ever been. I didn't talk, they all say it's all talk.
"I've had my mouth shut for months and I still came in and silenced the whole f**king division!"
When asked who he'd like to fight next, 'The Strabanimal' replied: "Them all! Give me everyone, anyone, a big bag of money and I'll fight any f**king one of them!
"I'm too smart, I'm too smart for them. Back where I come from, I'm the toughest motherf**ker in the whole thing, nobody can stop me!"
Gallagher goes on to finish the interviewing by saying: "I'm the third main event, I'm 23-year-old, everyone counts me out but I count myself in every f**king time!

Fans have reacted to the interview and they were quick to comment on Strabane-born Gallagher's voice, and how similar he sounded to Dublin-born McGregor.

Gallagher responded to fans questioning his accent, explaining it is down to travelling around other countries as a youngster.
"Prob stayed there when I moved to Dublin when I was 14 and started travelling to new countries every month and no one understands what you're saying, it changes over time," he replied on Twitter.
