“Pound for pound king forever”: Ex-UFC double champ Conor McGregor drops infamous take on his MMA career

Despite being inactive for almost two years, Conor McGregor hasn’t stopped bragging about himself. Recently, McGregor shocked many with a boastful post.

McGregor unquestionably distinguished himself as one of the best lightweight fighters in UFC history during his prime. Mystic Mac’s powerful punches, pinpoint accuracy, and mastery of dramatic finishes enthralled spectators all around the world.

The lightweight superstar’s charisma and marketing prowess also significantly contributed to his status ascent and his being one of combat sports’ most well-known celebrities. However, there has been some disagreement, though, regarding him being the pound-for-pound number one. 

Conor McGregor’s UFC career

McGregor, who made his UFC debut in 2013 against Marcus Brimage in the featherweight division, rose to popularity fast, winning fights against key featherweight contenders and demonstrating his unique personality both inside and outside the Octagon. 


The Irishman’s trash-talking and arrogant demeanor helped him establish his brand. When Conor defeated Jose Aldo to win the UFC Featherweight Championship in 2015, he grabbed everyone’s attention. 

A year later, The Notorious stepped up to the lightweight division in an effort to defeat Eddie Alvarez and become the first fighter in UFC history to hold the gold strap of two different weight classes simultaneously. 

The former two-division champion’s submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in their highly anticipated lightweight title bout is regarded as the beginning of the downfall of his illustrious mixed martial arts career. 

When will Conor McGregor return to UFC?

It seems unlikely that Conor McGregor’s scheduled fight against Michael Chandler in the latter part of this year will take place due to developments over the past four months. McGregor’s refusal to participate in the testing pool administered by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has created complications.

According to regulations, in order to be eligible to compete, McGregor must be part of the testing pool and demonstrate clean results at least twice in six months. However, McGregor’s reluctance to re-enroll and comply with these requirements has put his return fight in jeopardy.

Do you still believe McGregor and Chandler will square off in the octagon despite all the commotion and controversy? Please share your thoughts in the comment section.
