Conor McGregor is in his domain so long as the mics are hot and there’s money on the table. Flashing a big wide smile Conor steps up in spots every time to resists authority at all costs. The closer someone could get to the center of heat, the giddier he got. He verbally struck for a nerve and succeed every time.
The Irishman took the MMA trash-talk crown away from Chael Sonnen and Ronda Rousey and placed it atop the sandy brow, and he does it with a heaping dose of great trash talk’s core ingredient: plain, old candor. And that’s what the fans, media and UFC management wants.
He once said: “I’m motivated by movement and money, and the movement of money”.
McGregor has been charmingly materialistic since getting his first tailored stylish suit. So long as there is a pay check in play and a soul to break, he’s never far from ring. He’s going to do everything to promote himself, do everything for money.
Conor is a dandy not a fighter
“If you give me have a chance to wear a suit, I’m going to come in with a custom suit made from scratch, straight from the fabric, fitted perfectly on my fantastic physique”
His unique fashion style and the way he talks, as well as his fighting of course, has helped keep the attention on him, and his made him stand out in an industry full of very interesting and unique individuals.
Dubliner has tons of custom-made suits and has had quite the influence on his fans, and does a great job at encouraging men to dress and impress. “God bless the Italians and their fine silks”, once he said. We sure he has sparked an increase in menswear sales.
He is always dressed to the nines in the finest threads money can buy and three-piece suits are now more popular than ever.
20 euro notorious tattoos
Long before he became a UFC star, the 26-year-old had some Arabic writing tattooed on the back of his left leg — which McGregor says was the result of an old holiday in Ayia Napa, Cyprus and cost €20 — but he’s not too sure what it actually means.
Conor has stepped his ink game up. As well as decorating his chest and belly with tattoo’s of a gorilla and tiger, he has recently added ink of his name and nickname to his torso.
Large gorilla head decorating his chest is an homage to his home team at Straight Blast Gym in Ireland. Interestingly, McGregor says he just chose his tattoos because he likes the way they look.
When UFC president Dana White was not impressed with Conor’s tattoos Irishman said: “He’s old now, he does not understand tattoos I don’t think. Maybe the Mike Tyson would look pretty good on Dana’s big ass head.”
But in his appearance on Fox Sports Live he said: “Mike Tyson’s face tattoo, that is a great tattoo. It is symbolic of who he was as a fighter. He was a man that dominated his game. I love Mike Tyson’s tattoo, I think it’s a phenomenal one.”
Look at Conor with no notable tattoos, looks weird doesn’t it.
And take a look at his inked body now.
While UFC Champion is in training for his fight, one fan has shown his love by getting a big detailed tattoo of his idol.
If McGregor would not stop adding inks to his canvas he will be eventually covered from head to toe.
The Notorious isn’t alone is his love of tattoos, even UFC women’s champion Ronda Rousey has a few pieces of ink dotting her body.
Forget a short back and sides, the latest way for men to wear their hair is in a bun. Fans around seeking to replicate McGregor look of shaved sides and a small ponytail on top.
