About Conor McGregor
McGregor has exploded into the fighting landscape not only for his talent as a fighter but for his skill with words, a knack for hype and showmanship. By doing so, he's in the midst of making that elusive crossover from a professional athlete into a cultural icon. Accomplishing so much in such a short period of time has many asking what is the secret to his success?
When asked, McGregor replies with a defiant - "I'm not talented, I'm obsessed." In his full quote McGregor explains:
"There's no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent doesn't exist, we all are equals as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that's that. I'm not talented, I am obsessed."
McGregor's loss to Dustin Poirier in January 2021 was only his third UFC fight since 2016, but he remains mixed martial arts' biggest star. He banked an estimated $22 million for the Poirier fight and more than $30 million for his previous fight, a knockout of Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.
