Conor McGregor Profile
Conor McGregor is a professional mixed martial artist and boxer from the Republic of Ireland. He joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in 2013 and started to rise to the top following his first title win in the featherweight division in 2015. The following year he became a two-division champion by winning the lightweight title.
He graced the boxing world for one fight in which he was defeated by legend Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2017. McGregor was stripped of his featherweight and lightweight titles in early 2018 due to inactivity.
He made his long-awaited return in October 2018, nearly two years after his last UFC fight, to challenge the new lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov. After the fight, the two sides erupted in a post-match brawl, resulting in a six-month suspension for McGregor.
He abruptly retired from MMA in March 2019, before returning with a victory in January 2020. It is currently unknown when his next fight will be.
His career in the ring has been full of its ups and downs, and it hasn’t been easy for him to become such a well-known name. He also managed to secure the fastest finish in UFC Championship when he knocked out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds at UFC 94.
