The Notorious One. Mystic Mac. The first UFC fighter to hold two championship belts at the same time. All describe the fascinating MMA sensation that is Conor McGregor.
The outspoken Irishman's signature Octagon performances include a 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo—who was an undefeated featherweight champ before McGregor destroyed him—two savage battles with veteran brawler Nate Diaz, and a second-round stoppage of Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title, among other epic scraps.
McGregor's fighting pedigree is only part of the story. His vicious trash-talking and brash behavior has made him a must-watch character for haters and fans alike.
To top it all off, the man's social media game is on point. Whether he's flaunting his baller lifestyle, ridiculing rivals, or inspiring the next generation of mixed martial artists, these posts are all, as McGregor might say, "foo-king incredible."
