While still in high school, McGregor developed an interest in football, playing for the kids’ squad of the local club Lourdes Celtic and rooting for Manchester United. When he was 12 years old, he became interested in another sport – boxing. As a result, he began boxing at the Crumlin Boxing Club under the guidance of two-time Olympic Games participant Phil Sutcliffe. Ultimately, Conor won the Dublin junior championship, and at the age of 16 he became interested in other martial arts, including wrestling and grappling.After his family moved to Lucan, a suburb of Dublin in 2006, Conor went to Coláiste Cois Life school, and also went to study plumbing, but did not stop attending the boxing gym.
In 2008, McGregor began training at SBG Ireland under the guidance of his current mentor, John Kavanagh. McGregor came into the gym and beat two of the best fighters there in sparring. However, he also hit future UFC female fighter Aisling Daley hard, after which Kavanagh, he said, “pinned McGregor and threw hard punches on the torso, until he promised that he would train in his gym, not fight.” This is how their collaboration began. In March of the same year, McGregor fought his first professional fight and won it by technical knockout in the 9th second of the second round over Gary Morris. Prior to joining the UFC, Conor constantly varied weight classes, fighting in featherweight and lightweight.By the end of 2010, he had 6 professional fights, two of which he lost.
In 2011, he began his impressive winning streak, during which he became the champion of the British promotion Cage Warriors in featherweight and lightweight, after which he was drawn to the attention of the UFC, and on April 6, 2013, McGregor made his debut in the Octagon. In Sweden, at UFC on Fuel TV 9, he has 67 seconds to finish with strikes from Markus Brimage. He will then go through the points of future UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway and consistently knock out Diego Brandao, Dustin Poirier and Dennis Siver, thereby earning a title shot.
On January 18, 2020, McGregor returned to his cage after a 15-month hiatus. At UFC 246, he returned to welterweight to avoid opposition from Donald Cerrone. The Irishman took 40 seconds to finish with the kicks of the “Cowboy”. It was rumored that McGregor would fight Justin Gage in July, but the coronavirus pandemic confused the cards. However, McGregor still wanted to fight Gage in July, albeit without spectators, but not getting what he wanted, on June 7, he announced on Twitter that he was ending his fighter’s career. Hi guys, I decided to retire from the fight.However, this is not his first such statement. In 2016 and 2019, he also left the sport for good.
The fighter’s father was seriously involved in boxing in his youth, winning several amateur awards. But McGregor Sr. did not go further and become a professional.Dee Devlin is not just Conor’s girlfriend, she is also the manager of his financial affairs. And one of his older sisters – Erin – is the stylist and barber of the MMA superstar, creating new images for him, which are then copied by thousands of men throughout the image. McGregor is a Catholic by faith and has advocated the legalization of same-sex marriage in Ireland. In 2013, his homeland legalized such marriages.
