Conor McGregor Nude ESPN Body Issue Pictures. Conor Anthony McGregor (born 14 July 1988) is an Irish professional mixed martial artist who is currently signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Throughout his career, he has competed as a featherweight, lightweight and welterweight. Conor is the current UFC Featherweight Champion.
Conor is known mostly as a striker and will normally try to be the aggressor in his fights. To make it more difficult for his opponents to predict his next move, he mostly uses an unorthodox stance and will switch between southpaw and conventional stances as well. He has been quoted as being “obsessed with movement”, putting an emphasis on fluidity, body movement, body control and balance in his training.
Conor McGregor’s trash talk, pre-match predictions and use of “psychological warfare” against his opponents have led to comparisons to Muhammad Ali, whom McGregor cites as one of his early inspirations. After Muhammad Ali died in June 2016, McGregor opined that “nobody will ever come close to Ali’s greatness”.
Conor McGregor has one sister named Erin who is a competitive bodybuilder. He has been in a relationship with his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, since 2008. Conor usually carries with him a hat that his grandfather frequently wore before he died. He is left-handed. In 2015, when his native country of Ireland had a nationwide vote on legalizing same-sex marriage, Conor voiced his support saying “We’re all human here at the end of the day — regardless of color, gender, sexuality…We all deserve the same rights.” Conor McGregor does not adhere to any pre-fight rituals or superstitions because he believes them to be “a form of fear”.
