Conor McGregor is an Irish professional in mixed martial arts who is currently signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion, and former UFC Featherweight Champion.
In 2008, McGregor started his mixed martial arts (MMA) career and in 2012, he won the Cage Warriors Featherweight and Lightweight Championships, holding both titles before signing with UFC. In 2015, McGregor defeated José Aldo for the UFC Featherweight Championship with a knockout thirteen seconds into the first round which was the fastest victory in UFC title fight history.
He is known for being the biggest pay-per-view draw in MMA history. In 2016, he was the first MMA fighter to crack into the Forbes top 100 highest paid athletes list.
Despite his huge MMA success, McGregor maintained an interest in boxing competitively again, and entertained the idea of a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. After months of campaigning and negotiating, it was officially announced in June 2017 that McGregor would compete in his first professional boxing match against the undefeated American. The fight date was set for 26 August 2017 in Las Vegas.
‘An Evening With Conor McGregor’ including a live interview, will take place at the SEC Armadillo in September 2017.
