Guests: Episodes with Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor, hailing from Dublin, Ireland, is a monumental figure in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA). He’s a former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight and Lightweight Champion and was the first UFC fighter to simultaneously hold titles in two weight classes. Also noteworthy is his stint in professional boxing, where he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. McGregor is a magnet for pay-per-view (PPV) audiences, having been the main event in the top five highest-selling UFC PPVs, including a record-setting bout against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.

Training out of Straight Blast Gym in Dublin, McGregor is a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and collaborates with other prominent Irish fighters. His sports background is diverse, featuring a strong focus on boxing and a past in competitive soccer. Interestingly, McGregor transitioned from boxing to focus on a well-rounded MMA skill set but later revisited boxing for his high-profile fight against Mayweather.

In recent years, McGregor has seen a mix of wins and losses. After announcing retirement, he returned to defeat Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in just 40 seconds, making him the first UFC fighter to achieve finishes in three different weight classes. However, his trilogy fight series with Dustin Poirier ended unfavorably for him. Despite looking promising in the first round of their third bout, McGregor suffered a broken tibia, causing the fight to be halted and handing the win to Poirier.

Financially, McGregor has been a giant. He was ranked as the world’s highest-paid athlete by Forbes in 2021 with a reported income of $180 million.
