On July 14, 1988 the Notorious One, Conor McGregor was born in Crumlin, Dublin. At the age of 12, McGregor got his first taste of fighting when he began boxing for the Crumlin Club. In 2006, he moved to Lucan, Dublin where after concluding a plumbing apprenticeship, Conor met UFC fighter Tom Egan. Soon after they started training and the Notorious One began his rise.
On 17 February 2007, at the age of 18, McGregor made his mixed martial arts debut and won via knockout in the first round. He was signed and starting working under John Kavanagh, who is in his corner to this day. From 2008 to 2013 he won different amateur contests, but considered a different career, until his Mom called Kavanagh and together they reinvigorated McGregor. From 2013 onward, McGregor rose to global super-stardom via his sniper-like striking ability. Not to mention, controversial attitude regarding insulting his opponents to engage in psychological warfare. Conor is gifted at getting in opponents heads, so when they see loud tattoos and hear “The Foggy Dew” they know the Notorious One is coming through. While many athletes are amazing, few help their sport grow the way Conor has with the UFC. Despite, losing his last 2 fights (including Mayweather), Conor remains forever on top of his own throne.
When someone steps through the ropes for their first professional bout and lands more punches in 9 rounds than Manny Pacquiao managed in 12, against the best defensive fighter of all time, Floyd Mayweather, they can kind of do whatever they want. Despite losing, McGregor has certainly learned a thing or two from Money Mayweather. The Irishman brought fashion to the UFC, making looking good cool in an otherwise roughneck sport. Recently, McGregor teamed up with his go-to-tailor, David August to create his own line of suits. Catch Connor rocking Gucci mink jackets made of Polar bear, and all things luxury.
