The Dubliner has achieved more in three years with
the UFC than anyone in the 20 year history of the
organization. From an unknown prospect to the fi rst
man to hold two world titles simultaneously, McGregor’s
knockout-fi lled march through the featherweight and
lightweight rankings sent shockwaves through the world.
But as effortless as McGregor’s heroics seem, his journey
was far from smooth. Just another teenager trading martial
arts techniques with his friends, he chased a pipe dream
with little promise of reward. No one guessed he would
become the biggest pay-per-view attraction in the world.
This is not another tale of an athlete born exceptional
and groomed for success. It is about how one young man,
through bloody-minded determination and indomitable
spirit, changed the whole game.
