Conor McGregor’s absence from MMA hasn’t kept him from the cameras…
After winning the lightweight title at UFC 205, Conor McGregor’s stock went viral. Everybody wants a piece of the brash Irishman now, from movies to commercials and video games. Similar to Ronda Rousey in her prime, ‘The Notorious’ has gone mainstream.
Recently linked to the popular HBO series ‘Game of Thrones,’ the Irish striker’s influence is widespread. Following UFC 205, McGregor demanded a piece of UFC equity. Using his huge pay-per-view numbers in 2016, McGregor said without him the UFC would sink.
Now that he’s conquered the world of mixed martial arts, McGregor will take some time off. His girlfriend is pregnant, and so the Irishman will be absent. Perhaps during that time, especially after Rousey’s loss, the UFC will realize how powerful McGregor’s draw is.
During a recent article we saw McGregor featured in a ‘Pegasus world cup invitational’ commercial. Starring alongside actor and comedian Jon Lovitz, McGregor is starting to rub shoulders with some well known faces.

Conor McGregor the horse jockey? Sure, why not. After being stripped of the UFC featherweight title by the promotion, ‘The Notorious’ argued he was still two-weight champion.
Although he is their biggest star, arguably ever, McGregor has butted heads with his employers many times. He was famously pulled from UFC 200 for missing a press conference.
