Conor McGregor Fan Shirt: Fook You
BUY on AMZN: $16.99
Within the last few years, Conor McGregor has rocketed himself to become the highest paid and most recognized MMA fighter. At one point he held both the UFC Featherweight title and the UFC Lightweight title. Two of the toughest divisions in MMA. Conor McGregor was able to accomplish this with his special ability to talk smack and actually back it up. Taking a page right out of Chael Sonnen’s playbook, Conor McGregor would use stinging insults and foolish behaviour to win fans. Not to mention getting into his opponents head which is now an essential part of top tier MMA.
Despite Conor’s capable and creative smack talking, he met his match with Nate Diaz. The cool headed king of nonchalant. Conor tried his mind games on Nate Diaz and was slapped with a cold and firm “I Don’t Give a Fuck!” A quintessential Nate Diaz line that Conor McGregor had no come back to.

Nate Diaz vs Conor McGregor, UFC 196, 5 March 2016
The benefit of having a monopoly-like promotion in the fight world like the UFC is that most if not all the best MMA fighters in the world are under one roof. The UFC has the ability to give us fantastic match-ups that are not only fun for the fans but phenomenal for the sport.
One such special fight is Nate Diaz vs Conor McGregor. Conor one of the promotions fastest rising stars with legitimate skill to back it up. He has cut through the entire featherweight division on a rampage. But now he meets Nate Diaz, one of the fight world’s favourite rebellious sons with a multitude of fight of the night, submission of the night, and knockout of the night bonuses.
Nobody knows who will win the fight, but what is certain is that it’s going to be an awesome fight to watch.
Dustin Poirier vs Joseph Duffy, UFC 195, 2 January 2016
The long awaited debut of Joseph Duffy into the upper ranks of the UFC Lightweight division pitted him against Dustin Poirier who is making his return to the 155lb division. Joseph Duffy originally promoted himself as the only person in the UFC that has beaten Conor McGregor, and the only person that can beat him again.
Dustin Poirier vs Joseph Duffy was an exciting and bloody battle. An absolutely amazing fight to watch between two crafty, skilled, and tough fighters. In this fight, Dustin also exposed a few weaknesses in Joseph Duffy’s fight game. Joseph may not get that fight with Conor McGregor as soon as he would have liked.
Jose Aldo vs Conor McGregor, UFC 194, 12 December 2015
Whether you are a McGregor fan or an Aldo fan. Whether you believe in the hype or not. Whether you are a fight fan or not. Whether you even care about MMA. This was one of the most highly anticipated fights in MMA history.
I am a fan of both fighters and have been following their professional careers. Jose Aldo from when he was in the WEC. McGregor making his way quickly up the UFC ranks. Followed them throughout the world media tour for UFC 189. Found myself dejected and disappointed when Jose had to withdraw due to injury. Followed the stupid UFC 194 embedded series and even found myself getting emotionally invested. Feeling annoyed at McGregor’s taunting game and feeling frustrated for Jose. For as many times as you hear fight fans say, “kick his ass in the cage, shut him up”. I found myself feeling that and hoping Jose would do the same.
What a huge waste of hope and energy.
Conor McGregor vs Chad Mendes, UFC 189, July 2015
UFC 189 may have been one of the best cards the UFC has put together in a long time. Every single fight in the main card turned into a bloody war of attrition, testing each fighters commitment to their craft, shaking each fighter to their very core.
The one fight that had me in suspense for the entire duration was Conor McGregor vs Chad Mendes. The suspense was mostly because I was rooting for the underdog, Chad Mendes. Victory was so close yet so far. In the end, it was Conor’s durability and his accurate and powerful striking that won him the UFC Interim Featherweight Championship.
