If it wasn’t for Conor McGregor, mixed martial arts wouldn’t be this popular these days.
The MMA fighter from Dublin, Ireland is regarded as the biggest star UFC ever had and “The Notorious” deserves at least a statue in front of the UFC headquarters.
The Irish joined UFC back in 2013. Prior to that, he was a double champion at “Cage Warriors” and he was making his mark all over the world of MMA.
Now, seven years later McGregor is still the highest-paid UFC athlete, and the buzz he creates is still unmeasurable to anybody else.
You all know the story – the unbeaten streak, the 13 seconds, the Diaz fights, etc. But in case you’ve forgotten how it all started, here’s a reminder.
