Conor McGregor's Maxim Photo Shoot

THE UFC'S TRASH-TALKING CONOR MCGREGOR DRESSES UP
By Matt Berical, MAXIM
Conor McGregor knows how to make a statement. Just two years and five fights into his UFC career, the Irish featherweight has gone from relative unknown to the most electrifying character in the sport.

Yes, the 26-year-old is a brutal, efficient fighter with an eclectic array of techniques and a knack for knockouts (15 of his 17 wins come from TKOs, including four of his five UFC wins). But his meteoric rise owes as much to his mouth as to his fists, knees, and feet: McGregor is a sneering, trash-spewing, over-the-top showman more akin to a top-card professional wrestler than a cage fighter.

Often outfitted in three-piece suits, he riles up fans with crazed monologues, taunts fighters mid-match with a wagged finger, and boldly predicts how long it’ll take him to incapacitate opponents (usually two minutes, but even if foes don’t tap, that’s about the time McGregor “sees their eyes dim,” as he puts it).

“What can I say? I’m a talker,” he says.
