He’s More Than Just A Champ
Conor McGregor began his fighting career at 20 years old and has never looked back. Born in Dublin, Ireland, the skinny kid with the beard looks like a lot of things as he comes walking across the octagon, but a UFC fighter? That would not be your first guess.
In fact, you would never believe that this guy has accomplished what he has in many areas. He is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and is the first Irishman ever to attain the honor. He has been effectively trained in Taekwondo, Capoeira, karate and Kickboxing as well.
What does all of that mean? It means the guy may be small, but he’s also lethal. He appears to be nothing but sinewy muscle and bones when he is in the ring, but he is surprisingly strong, as well as fast and agile. His beard looks like it weighs more than he does. It’s hard to believe that he is renowned for his knockout power. You didn’t know that? Well, here are a few more things you probably didn’t know about the new UFC Featherweight Champ.
