Conor Anthony McGregor is a mixed martial artist, boxer, and entrepreneur from Ireland. He is a former featherweight and lightweight champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is currently ranked #9 in the UFC lightweight rankings as of July 19, 2021.

McGregor is a former featherweight and lightweight champion of the Cage Warriors. He knocked out José Aldo for the UFC Featherweight Championship at UFC 194 in 2015, the fastest victory in UFC championship fight history, 13 seconds into the first round. McGregor became the first fighter in UFC history to hold championships in two weight classes concurrently after defeating Eddie Alvarez for the UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 205.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. beat him in his first professional boxing battle. He’s the most popular pay-per-view (PPV) fighter in MMA history, having headlined five of the top six UFC pay-per-view events. At UFC 229, his main event fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov generated 2.4 million PPV buys, the largest ever for an MMA event. In North America, his boxing battle with Mayweather generated 4.3 million PPV sales, the second most in history. Forbes named McGregor the world’s highest-paid athlete in 2021, with a whopping $180 million in earnings. He was again on the list in 2018, coming in fourth place with a reported income of $99 million.

Conor Anthony McGregor was born on July 14, 1988, in Crumlin, Dublin, to Tony and Margaret McGregor. He grew up in Crumlin and went to Irish-language institutions, including the Gaelscoil Scoil Mológa in Harold’s Cross for elementary school and Gaelcholáiste Coláiste de hde in Tallaght for high school, where he also pursued his interest for football.

He used to play football for Lourdes Celtic Football Club when he was younger. He started boxing at Crumlin Boxing Club when he was 12 years old as a method to protect himself against bullies and acquire confidence.

McGregor relocated to Lucan, Dublin, with his family in 2006 to attend Gaelcholáiste Coláiste Cois Life. After that, he began a plumbing apprenticeship. He met future UFC fighter Tom Egan while in Lucan, and the two began training in mixed martial arts (MMA) together shortly after.

McGregor made his professional MMA debut on March 9, 2008, as a lightweight, defeating Gary Morris by TKO in the second round. McGregor made his featherweight debut in a defeat by kneebar to submission specialist Artemij Sitenkov after winning his second bout against Mo Taylor.

Following a featherweight victory over Stephen Bailey in his next fight, McGregor considered following a different career path until his mother phoned his coach John Kavanagh and encouraged him to stick with mixed martial arts.

McGregor then won his next fight, again at featherweight, over Connor Dillon before dropping back to lightweight for a bout against Joseph Duffy, in which he was defeated by an arm-triangle choke and suffered his second career loss. Following that, McGregor went on an eight-fight winning streak in 2011 and 2012, earning both the CWFC Featherweight and Lightweight belts, making him the first European professional mixed martial artist to hold titles in both classes at the same time.

Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, visited Dublin, Ireland in February 2013 to accept a Gold Medal of Honorary Patronage from Trinity College, and was bombarded with pleas to sign McGregor to the UFC. White offered McGregor a contract days later after meeting with him and speaking with UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta.
