Good for Conor.
i thought he didnt want to work so he fled and applied for welfare ?
Lol someone like Pacquaio went from Rags to Riches, not Conor
Who gives a fuck. Seriously? Why do his fans harp on his money? It’s the strangest thing I’ve ever encountered.
Youre not a real fight fan if you dont love Conor. He is exciting beyond belief inside and outside octagon.
He is not the richest athlete, just the highest earner due to selling his stake in Proper 12
There quite a few athletes richer, past and present!
He is not even close to being the richest athlete in the world.
Stop believing these media headlines, it's a joke.
- supported by his above middle class family and gf.
- Was given money and multiple jobs
by the gov
- Free healthcare and education
> is poor
This is an MMA forum. A story about a poor kid in Ireland making it big in MMA appeals to the masses. Love or hate him, Conor has done what very few others have been able to do, which makes the story unique and interesting. The story has been covered on ESPN, CNN, Yahoo Sports, New York Post, Washington Post, USA Today, Forbes......
Conor is a MAJOR success story. I love to see him fight, and i hope he wins his next fight. If he loses his next one i feel like that is truly the last time we will see him fight. incoming Conor 22.0!!!!!!!!!!
Agreed. Good for Conor, I guess, but there are lots of athletes just like him who make it big. Rags to riches in sports, especially combat sports, is very common.
Haters gonna hate
1. mcgregor was never an actual plumber
2. Mcgregor would leave his parents middle class home, in their decidedly middle class estate in leafy surbubia, to pursue his dream
man no one cares about this shit now lol
2016 wants its thread back.
Hate him. The money changed him
The majority of basketball and football stars came from far worse than he did
Crumbling is a working class neighborhood. It's not by any stretch a ghetto
I think it’s pretty impressive the amount of wealth he was able to secure for himself in a relatively small amount of time. Especially considering how many talk about how little mma pays. Maybe it isn’t a job but an opportunity.
I enjoy watching him fight but wished he was more humble considering his blue collar origin story. Some of his antics are repulsive.
To paraphrase the Rolling Stones, I used to love him... but it's all over now.
