Three years ago today, Conor McGregor made his UFC debut against Marcus Brimage. McGregor, a two-division Cage Warriors champion at the time of his UFC debut, had quite a bit of hype behind him as he made his UFC debut, and he did not disappoint.
McGregor landed numerous uppercuts on Brimage, showcasing his impressive counter striking ability as he became the first man to stop Marcus Brimage with strikes.
On the three year anniversary of his UFC debut, McGregor reflected on his UFC journey thus far.
3 years ago today, I began my crusade to take all you bums from 5 figure paydays to multi seven figure paydays.
And not even a thank you.
