Conor McGregor has come a long way from working a plumbing job in Ireland.
On Saturday, November 6, McGregor will return to the Octagon for the first time since 2016 to take on Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor comes into the match sporting a 21-3 record and a reputation as one of the hardest-hitting, most entertaining, and overall best fighters.
We took a look back at McGregor’s professional bout history, starting in 2008 to now, and looked up what all of his old opponents are up to. Many have since left the fighting game, some have opened gyms, and some are still in the MMA game. And one, of course, is one of the most famous boxers ever who still lives life large.
Records and fight information came from ESPN, Sherdog, and Tapology.
Here’s where all 24 of McGregor’s opponents are today.
McGregor made his MMA debut on March 8, 2008, beating Gary Morris by TKO.
Morris posted an 8-10 record as a fighter, with his last fight coming in 2016. It’s unclear what he does today.
Two months later, McGregor took on Mo Taylor in his second fight. McGregor won by TKO, though it was close at one point, as Taylor got McGregor in a tough arm bar.
