In March 2019, Conor McGregor announced his retirement from the UFC. The odds were that he would not stay out of the game for long. Less than a year later and he announced his return to the Octagon in a matchup against the All-American Donald Cerrone.
Conor won the fight in Las Vegas, forcing a TKO in just 40 seconds. The Notorious came out the gate firing and used a number of unique techniques to put Cerrone on his back, before reigning down punches only for the referee to call it. His latest bout came against his old foe Dustin Poirier, but Conor was beaten in convincing fashion in the second.
McGregor still has a huge cult following and his continued trash talk has kept him in the spotlight. All of this has led bookmakers to post futures betting odds that favour the Irish fighter.

Who is Conor McGregor?
McGregor is only the UFC’s biggest fighter and possibly the biggest combat sports superstar outside Floyd Mayweather Jr. The man who goes by many nicknames: The Notorious and Mystic Mac is a rag to riches story.
Coming from the streets of Dublin as a man on welfare, McGregor rose to prominence after compiling a 12-2 pro-MMA record with all of his fights ending via stoppage. His penchant for one-punch knockouts combined with his larger-than-life personality and his genius with trash talk quickly propelled him through MMA’s ranks.
McGregor blitzed the UFC, destroying everyone in his path. He won his first seven fights and captured the UFC featherweight championship easily. His first loss came against the much-larger Nate Diaz on short notice.
Despite the loss, McGregor only became bigger. He avenged his defeat and went on to become the UFC’s first simultaneous two-division champion when he captures the lightweight title. From here, he challenged the greatest boxer today, Mayweather, in what became the second-biggest boxing event.
Unfortunately for McGregor, his popularity got to his head and he soon became more notorious for his non-fighting transgressions such as his hoodlum activities, including an alleged sexual assault scandal.
McGregor remains popular, but his losses combined with his obnoxious behaviour are quickly turning people off. The Conor McGregor odds watch continues, but the love affair with the fans is slowly burning away.

McGregor’s Famous Fights
Whenever McGregor fights, the world pays attention and for a good reason. There is rarely a boring McGregor fight as he entertains on all levels: pre-fight hype build-up, the actual fight, and post-fight antics. But here is a collection of McGregor’s most famous fights.
McGregor vs Chad Mendes
This was the first pay-per-view McGregor headlined and was a last-minute matchup change due to Jose Aldo getting injured. McGregor was training for a striker in Aldo, but it made no difference when he faced NCAA Division I All-American wrestler Chad Mendes.
McGregor had long been criticized for being “one-dimensional” and lacking a ground game. Mendes exposed McGregor by easily taking him down. However, McGregor survived Mendes’s best shot and finished him within two rounds to capture the interim featherweight title.
McGregor vs Jose Aldo
The match with Aldo eventually proceeded. McGregor continued to verbally assault longtime featherweight champion Aldo and play mind games with him and it worked. The proud champion made a critical mistake early in the fight. McGregor knocked out Aldo in just 13 seconds to capture the featherweight title in record time.
With this win, McGregor cemented himself as the UFC’s premier superstar as this PPV also became his first of many, which sold over a million buys.
McGregor vs Nate Diaz
Many fans still hope for a potential trilogy here as these two fights between McGregor and Diaz were classics. McGregor was at the height of his fame, having just crushed Aldo in 13 seconds. He was aiming for the lightweight title, but an injury to then-champion Rafael dos Anjos forced the UFC to put Nate Diaz in as a late replacement at welterweight.
McGregor came in as a heavy favourite, but Diaz ate McGregor’s best shots and submitted him in two rounds. The shocker became one of the year’s biggest upsets.
Undeterred, McGregor immediately rematched Diaz with the same match stipulations. McGregor fought a more strategic fight this time around and eked out a close decision victory that some still dispute today. Either way, McGregor proved to his naysayers that he could go the distance and overcome adversity.
McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Jr.
After schooling Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight title, his second UFC championship, McGregor set his sights on the largest fish in Floyd Mayweather Jr. McGregor’s star power made it possible as the UFC and Showtime co-promoted this megafight, which sold over 4.3 million buys.
The neophyte McGregor took Mayweather to 10 rounds in what was Mayweather’s most exciting fight in a long time.
McGregor poured it on Mayweather and won most of the first six rounds, but slowed down and was finished by the more experienced boxer.
Despite the loss, this fight took McGregor’s status to new heights and he was never the same again.
McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov
After a two-year hiatus from MMA, McGregor made his long-anticipated return against the unstoppable wrestler, Nurmagomedov. This was the classic striker versus grappler fight and had over a year’s worth of buildup. Everything from bus attacks to gang fights to crossing the line in trash talk was involved.
The fight itself was one-sided and marked the worst loss of McGregor’s career. Nurmagomedov overwhelmed McGregor from start to finish. The Russian even stunned McGregor with a punch and thoroughly dominated him on the ground, eventually submitting him with a neck crank.
It wasn’t done there. Following his win, Nurmagomedov attacked McGregor’s teammates and McGregor himself was attacked by Nurmagomedov’s team. This led to multiple suspensions and fines for the two.
This event shattered UFC box office records though it could be McGregor’s final fight.
