UFC – Where Fighters Wear Their Hearts On Their Sleeve
The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) sees two fighters go head-to-head in an octagon. It’s an arena where losers are quickly forgotten. But Conor McGregor has never had losing on his mind. In 2013, he set the world of MMA alight when he burst onto the UFC scene, destroying his first opponent in just over a minute. Starting as he meant to go on, Conor became known for his dramatic first-round knockout blows. Perhaps his most career-defining moment of all came against then-champion José Aldo, where he scored the quickest knockout in UFC history in just 13 seconds. Cementing his success as one of the all-time greats, Conor became the first fighter to hold championship belts in two UFC weight divisions simultaneously. Known for his unmatched movement and quick hands, Conor is a stand-up specialist, usually finishing with his lethal left-hand. As a fighter, he is fearless, always wearing his heart on his sleeve and pushing himself to the limit, which has earned him the nickname “Notorious.”

In his own words: “There are two things I really like to do and that's whoop ass and look good.” Conor now oversees his own clothing range August McGregor. His range – like the man himself – is bold and flashy. Coming from humble beginnings, Conor has had to earn every cent of his success, blow by blow.
