Whether you love him or hate him, its hard to deny the dominance of Conor McGregor. Barring an early 2016 hiccup against Nate Diaz, the Irishman has blown through his UFC competition, setting records and making millions in the process.
It all began with a knockout of Marcus Brimage. Then came a dominant decision defeat of Max Holloway. Next up was a trio of TKOs over Diego Brandao, Dustin Poirier and Dennis Siver. Then came his interim featherweight title-winning defeat of Chad Mendes. Up next was his 13-second knockout of undisputed champ Jose Aldo. Then there were is two unforgettable 2016 battles with Nate Diaz, and finally, there was his early November knockout of lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez, which made him the first fighter in UFC history to wear titles in two divisions concurrently.
Indeed, it’s safe to say that Conor McGregor is on top of the fight game – and you better believe he knows it too.
On Wednesday morning, the Irishman took to Twitter to flaunt his unprecedented success, showing off a few bricks of cash, and calling out the entire UFC roster for not being on his level.

“Hello, I’d like to order some competition please I don’t have any,” McGregor said in his Tweet.
While it’s true that McGregor really doesn’t have any competition in terms of star power or earnings, he’s certainly not without actual, physical competition.
As the king of two divisions, and the most visible fighter on the UFC roster, the Irishman is in the crosshairs of dozens of talented fighters, many of whom could well give him a run for his money. Atop his list of potential opponents sit lightweight contenders Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson, interim featherweight champ Jose Aldo, welterweight champ Tyron Woodley, and of course, his biggest rival, Nate Diaz. No, the Irishman is certainly not without competition in the sense of worthy opposition.
Of course, we know that McGregor has plans to take some time off to father his first child with long-time girlfriend Dee Devlin. This will leave his throngs of suitors to squabble amongst themselves until he’s ready to return and put one his belts on the line.
