In 2013, Conor McGregor, a bright Irish prospect from the feeder league Cage Warriors, joined the UFC. The stardom promised by “The Notorious” was more than fulfilled, and he elevated the game to entirely new heights.
McGregor has compiled a 22-6 overall record since going pro in 2008, which includes 19 KO/TKO victories. The Dubliner has participated in 14 UFC events so far, which is exactly half of his total amount of fights.
Eight knockout victories, two decision wins, and four stoppage defeats make up McGregor’s UFC record. Before being dealt his first professional loss by Nate Diaz, the Irishman began his UFC career with a seven-fight winning streak, capped off by his 13-second knockout victory over Jose Aldo.
By defeating Eddie Alvarez, who was arguably the greatest point of his career to date, the Irishman exacted revenge for his defeat by Diaz and went on to win his second championship.
The Notorious lost a following title opportunity to Khabib Nurmagomedov, made a brief comeback with a stoppage victory over Donald Cerrone, and then lost to Dustin Poirier after a two-fight losing streak.
Conor McGregor competed 14 times in local Irish promotions prior to beginning his UFC career, and he later won two championships in the UFC’s feeder league, Cage Warriors. He finished all 12 of his victories outside of the UFC, including one that was a submission, but he also lost two submission fights.
Conor McGregor’s next fight
Conor McGregor has been out for more than 15 months due to a fractured leg he sustained during his most recent fight with Dustin Poirier. McGregor is finally prepared to return to the octagon after what seemed like an endless journey through Europe in his Lamborghini superyacht.
When Dana White officially revealed the Irishman’s return as a coach on the forthcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, fans were ecstatic. Michael Chandler and McGregor will appear together on TUF from May 30 until August 15.
Then, on a PPV bill with an undetermined date, “The Notorious” will face Chandler.
With Conor McGregor back, Marc Raimondi Chandler has confidently predicted a second-round stoppage victory McGregor.
