Conor McGregor posts photo comparison of his physique over the years

When “The Notorious” Conor McGregor made his UFC debut in April 2013, he was competing in the featherweight division. He hasn’t fought in the 145-pound class since knocking out Jose Aldo to win the championship in December 2015.

His next fight would be in the welterweight division against Nate Diaz in March 2016. Diaz handed McGregor his first loss inside the octagon, beating the Irishman by submission in the second round of the main event of the UFC 196. A rematch was quickly booked and McGregor avenged the loss by defeating Diaz by majority decision at UFC 202 in August 2016.

McGregor’s next fight would be for the lightweight title. He tore down then-champion Eddie Alvarez in the second round of the main event at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in November 2016. He stepped away from mixed martial arts to pursue a lucrative crossover boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2017. Mayweather stopped McGregor by TKO in the tenth round.

He returned to the octagon in October 2018 against undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov. McGregor lost the lightweight championship in his first defense to Nurmagomedov via a fourth-round submission in the main event of UFC 229.

In his next fight, McGregor defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246 in January 2020. He put on a bonus winning performance, finishing Cerrone in just 40 seconds. Then COVID-19 appeared. A year after the victory over Cerrone, McGregor would be back in the cage.

He was then paired up in a rematch against Dustin Poirier. McGregor scored an early finish on Poirier in their first fight in the featherweight division in 2014.

Poirier stopped McGregor in the second round of UFC 257 via punches. A trilogy fight was inked and McGregor was beaten by Poirier for a second time after suffering a broken leg in the closing seconds of the first round at UFC 264 last July.

McGregor is expected to return to action this year and has indicated his comeback fight will likely take place in the welterweight division. McGregor wants to be the first three-division UFC champion.
