The biggest draw in UFC history, there was a time when McGregor's skills in the Octagon matched his abilities as a wordsmith.
Still, it's his attributes as a draw that will go down as his strongest suit in UFC lore. Five of the six biggest PPV buys all featured Conor McGregor as the main draw, and his fight in UFC 257 is currently the biggest in the MMA company's history.
His in-ring career highlights include defeating Jose Aldo in only thirteen seconds at UFC 194; walloping Eddie Alvarez in UFC 205 to become UFC Lightweight Champion; and being the first UFC fighter in history to hold two belts in different divisions.
In his lone boxing match to date, in a fight that was more hype and circus than anything else, Conor McGregor suffered a TKO loss (10th round) to Floyd Mayweather in October 2017.

The couple have been together since 2008. Today, they have two children, Conor Jack McGregor Jr. and Croia McGregor.

McGregor just renewed his sponsorship deal with Reebok, which sets him up to earn $5 million per year. He currently has deals with media outlets such as The Mac Life, fashion brand August McGregor and fitness brand McGregor FAST as well.
