That’s never been a problem for “The Notorious” Conor McGregor.
McGregor burst on the UFC scene with a spectacular knockout victory over Marcus Brimage in April of 2013 , but as impressive as that win was, McGregor’s personality took centre stage in the spotlight in the post-fight interview when he campaigning for a Knockout of the Night Bonus by screaming “Dana! Sixty Gs, baby!”
That was the first time many MMA fans heard of McGregor but that debut will now be remembered as the opening act to the Conor McGregor Show.

That’s a decision he’s happy to force fight fans into. Need proof? Just take a look at Conor McGregor’s best quotes of all time.
