Conor McGregor is not one to shy away from controversy. The Irish mixed martial artist often seems to be as aggressive out of the ring as he is in it. In fact, over the years, he's almost become more famous for his non-professional fighting as he has for his athletic accomplishments, including winning the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2014.
But Mcgregor's latest scuffle seems to have a different flavor. In a video captured by TMZ, the boxer is seen violently lashing out. And his opponent seems pretty unfairly matched to the fighting champion. Want to see for yourself? Scroll on.
After seeing the vid, pubs are pushing back against McGregor, refusing the endorse his whiskey and making some very public displays against the star.
Born on July 14th, 1988, Conor McGregor is one of the best-known fighters around.His career began in mixed martial arts at the age of twenty. By 2012, McGregor had won both the Featherweight and Lightweight Cage Warrior championships.
But his dreams were even bigger.McGregor vacated both of these titles in 2012 to sign with the UFC. He was equally successful in this sport, achieving the fastest ever knockout in history when he finished Jose Aldo in just thirteen seconds in 2015.
That's not even all of McGregor's achievements.In 2016, he defeated Eddie Alvarez in the Lightweight UFC division, making McGregor the first-ever holder of both the featherweight and lightweight titles simultaneously.
McGregor then made the move to boxing.His professional boxing career began in 2017. In his debut match, he was defeated by Floyd Mayweather - although it was the second most-watched boxing event in history, so that's a win of sorts.
Put simply, McGregor is kind of a big deal.He's currently the biggest pay-per-view draw in MMA history, having headlined five out of the six biggest selling events. And his son is ridiculously cute. And, on top of that, he appears to be a canny businessman.
McGregor is known for having some serious side hustles.From the beginning of his sporting career, he's been keen on bagging endorsement deals, including sponsorships with Beats by Dre, Monster Energy Drinks, Bud Light, and Reebok - to the tune of around $7 million.
And that's not all.
