One year ago today UFC superstar Conor McGregor made his professional boxing debut opposite undefeated legend of the sport Floyd Mayweather.
The brash Irish fighter surprised many doubters with his performance against Mayweather.
Although “Mystic Mac” would eventually fall victim to a tenth-round TKO stoppage, he was able to do what few boxers had before and that was actually hit Mayweather.
Conor McGregor is currently training for his highly anticipated octagon return which takes place at UFC 229 against his bitter rival and current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor took to Instagram earlier this evening where he reflected on his mega fight with “Money” Mayweather which took place one year ago today.
“1 year ago today I adhered to a load of rules, for a load of riches. Not today though. Today was no rules. Just a fight. A Proper one. For nothing more than peace, and peace of mind.” – Conor McGregor
The former two division UFC champion, Conor McGregor will make his highly anticipated octagon return on October 6 when he challenges Khabib Nurmagomedov for the promotions lightweight championship in the main event of UFC 229.
The Irish star has not stepped foot inside the cage since defeating Eddie Alvarez via second-round TKO at UFC 205 in November of 2016.
Despite being absent from the cage for nearly two years, Conor McGregor has still managed to keep his name in the headlines.
“Mystic Mac” sent shockwaves throughout the mixed martial arts world when he and his entourage attacked a UFC fighter bus at The Barclays Center the same weekend of April’s UFC 223 pay-per-view event.
Conor McGregor has made it clear that Khabib Nurmagomedov was his target during the now infamous bus attack in Brooklyn.
