About Conor McGregor
The first thing you should know about Conor McGregor (and what he makes known to the public) is that he is Irish and extremely proud. He was born in Dublin and has spent his entire life in Ireland. McGregor and his long-time girlfriend are celebrities and even have a mural painted in their honor on O’Connell Street.
Those who live in Ireland love McGregor because he’s so proud of his heritage and he can really fight! He began his ammeter career in 2007 and worked his way into professional fighting within a year’s time. After six years of fighting he signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Since signing with UFC, he’s had the chance to face dozens of other professional fighters.
What has made him so successful is that he doesn’t only fight but he also wins (and he brings in tons of cash for UFC). Throughout his career McGregor has been the headliner on some of the highest-earning pay-per-view events. His match against Nate Diaz had the most PPV buys in UFC history.
McGregor is known for his in-your-face attitude and fighting style, which has led him to the upcoming boxing match on Saturday. While he’s not a boxer, per se, McGregor has no doubt that he will beat Floyd Mayweather in the ring. Many people have called it a publicity stunt but either way McGregor is going to make a pretty penny from the match. So, how will Saturday’s events impact Conor McGregor’s net worth?
