Conor McGregor is a world-famous professional mixed martial artist that has built a considerable name for himself over the years. For everything we know on him, read on below.
Conor McGregor biography
He was born in the Crumlin area of Dublin on 14th July 1988. This makes Conor McGregor age 31 years. His parents’ names are Tony and Margaret. For his education, he went to Gaelscoil and Gaelcholáiste at both the primary and secondary level in Coláiste de hÍde in Tallaght, where he also developed his passion for sports and for football. He played for Lourdes Celtic Football Club.
At the age of 12, he got into boxing at the Crumlin Boxing Club. In 2006, he and his family moved to Lucan in Dublin where he met the UFC fighter Tom Egan. They started training together, and this was the start of his MMA career.
His debut would come in the year 2007 when he was 18 years old in an amateur fight against Kieran Campbell for the Irish Ring of Truth promotion in Dublin. He won in the very first round through a TKO (technical knockout), which got him signed as a professional by the Irish Cage of Truth promotion company. After this, he began training under John Kavanagh.
His professional debut came in 2008 against Gary Morris, whom he defeated in a second-round TKO. He won his second and third fight (the latter of which was his lightweight debut) at which point he began thinking about choosing a different career path, but his mother, through John Kavanagh, convinced him otherwise.
UFC Conor McGregor
He continued winning heavily in his career until he made his UFC debut in 2013. He was the second-ever person from Ireland signed to the company for a multi-fight contract, after Tom Egan.
On 6th April 2013, he had his first UFC match against Marcus Brimage, which he won in the very first round, and it earned him his first-ever “Knockout of the Night” award. In his second match, his intended opponent pulled out, but McGregor easily defeated the replacement fighter.
The next year, he earned his “Performance of the Night” award in a fight against Diego Brandão. His hot streak would continue like this, earning him awards and more formidable opponents that he would easily defeat.
However, it would end when he experienced his first UFC loss at the hands of Nate Diaz during UFC 196. Although both fighters were awarded “Fight of the Night” bonuses, it was a stain on McGregor’s record. However, that particular Conor fight resulted in him getting the highest disclosed purse of any fighter in the history of the UFC, at 1 million US dollars. This match broke the previous Conor McGregor record for Pay-Per-View buys at 1,317,000 compared to the previous 1,200,000.
The two would later have a rematch, where McGregor defeated his opponent.
He has had many fights over the years but his most publicized ever was against Floyd Mayweather, who is an American boxer. Although he lost, it was understood because he is not a boxer himself. The question was mainly on Mayweather vs McGregor money. The disclosed amounts were $100,000,000 for Mayweather and $30,000,000 for McGregor. However, they were estimated to have earned about $275,000,000 and $85,000,000 respectively.
His latest fight was in January 2020 against Donald Cerrone, which he won easily within the first 40 seconds of the fight despite having been on hiatus beforehand.
Now, Conor wishes to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov to satisfy his revenge after he lost to him in October 2018.
