Presently the foul-mouthed and flamboyant warrior is set for a £78 million payday with an attack into the boxing ring. His next opponent is the undefeated Floyd Mayweather, a boxer broadly viewed as one of the best and who mixed martial artist McGregor has persuaded out of retirement at 40 to attempt to beat him unexpectedly.

The Irishman’s fast rise from being a regular working class from Dublin to the other star for next month’s Las Vegas megafight. Tickets for which go marked down today and has grasped the sports world nearly as much as it has surprised everyone.


However, the 29-year-old former plumber’s apprentice does not doubt his skills. He is very confident that he will put an end to the five-division champion, Floyd Mayweather’s perfect record. McGregor believes that he is always destined to be on the top.

McGregor won the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) crown at two different weights for his three years career. He puts his incredible accomplishment down to a self-improvement guide book that his sister Erin told him about.

Rhonda Byrne’s 2006 blockbuster “The Secret” claims that positive thinking can make extraordinary outcomes. These outcomes, for example, are joy, health, and riches.


McGregor has said his first response to viewing the DVD adaptation was: “This is bulls*** — but then something clicked for me.”

He and his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, who deals with his finances, began concentrating on little things they needed. For example, a parking spot nearest to the entryways of a local shopping center.

According to The Sun, McGregor said that he would be driving to the shop and start visualizing the exact car park space he will take. He would get the exact space every time. Because of this, he also began to visualize wealth, his fame, and his championship.

A lot of people believe that McGregor was a born fighter. In spite of football being his first love as a young man, he discovered his calling when he was just 12 and since then, he never looked back.

According to the New York Daily News, McGregor said that the if a person grew up from where he is from, you will surely get into fights. Since being able to defend himself is what is always occupying his mind all the time, McGregor began to train.

He began to take classes at the Straight Blast Gym under Coach John Kavanagh. The said coach is still his coach until now.

According to the John, McGregor can hit hard. And that is something which is difficult to teach. What made him different from other fighters is that he was obsessive.

Another trainer, Phil Sutcliffe, a two-time Olympic boxer also remembers McGregor as a young fella who is not a bad mover and can pack a wallop.

McGregor also owes his success from his father and mother, claiming that his parents did not believe him at first. He also ignited his love affair with mixed martial arts from Tom Egan, his first sparring mate, and friend, who was the first Irishman to fight in the UFC.
