Conor McGregor will make his much-anticipated return to the fight game when he meets Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the main event of UFC 246 on Jan. 18, 2020 in Las Vegas. Nevada.
But before ‘Notorious” returns to his roots of stomping people out, ESPN has put together an awesome video highlighting Conor’s rise in the UFC, as well as his setbacks.
It’s well-put montage done by journalist Brett Okamoto reminding everyone just what Conor brings to the table.
From his first fight for UFC, to his 13-second KO over Jose Aldo and his win over Eddie Alvarez to become UFC’s first-ever champ-champ, this recaps “Notorious’s” career inside the Octagon thus far.
The montage also highlights Conor’s troubles outside of the cage.
“ESPN MMA’s Brett Okamoto looks back at Conor McGregor’s complicated journey since winning knockout of the night in his UFC debut,” says the description.
“Two years after his debut, McGregor knocked out Jose Aldo in just :13 seconds to win his first title and later became the UFC’s first double champion when he beat Eddie Alvarez in November 2016”
“Since then, the “Notorious” Conor McGregor’s business ventures have taken off, while at the same time he’s found himself a part of many controversies away from the Octagon.”
“Including attacking a bus at UFC 223 Media Day, being arrested and charged with strong-armed robbery and appearing to strike a man in a pub in Dublin, Ireland,” it continued.
Pegged as the heavy favorite, Conor is looking to get his first win in mixed martial arts (MMA) in three years in a fight that will be contested at Welterweight.
