On 17 February 2007, at the age of 18, McGregor made his mixed martial arts debut in an amateur fight against Kieran Campbell for the Irish Ring of Truth promotion in Dublin.
He won via technical knockout (TKO) in the first round. Following the fight, he turned professional and was signed by the Irish Cage of Truth promotion.
In 2008, McGregor began training at the Straight Blast Gym (SBG) in Dublin under John Kavanagh.
On 9 March 2008, McGregor had his first professional MMA bout, as a lightweight, defeating Gary Morris with a second-round TKO. After McGregor won his second fight against Mo Taylor, he made his featherweight debut in a loss via kneebar against submission specialist Artemij Sitenkov.
After a victory at featherweight in his next bout against Stephen Bailey, McGregor contemplated a different career path before his mother contacted his coach John Kavanagh and reinvigorated him to continue pursuing mixed martial arts.
Who is Conor mcgregor wife
Dee Devlin is former UFC champion, Conor McGregor’s long-term girlfriend. Devlin was born on August 9, 1987, in Walkinstown, Dublin. However, most of the details about her, such as her parents’ names, are not disclosed in the public domain.
‘Notorious’ and Devlin crossed paths first time in a nightclub in 2008. While Devlin was doing odd jobs like a server, the Irish fighter was still finding his feet in the MMA world.
The 22-6 record holder instantly took a liking to Devlin. Likewise, he once said, “She seemed like a nice girl, and I like good girls.”
Devlin similarly once revealed: “He’s very funny–he always keeps me entertained and makes me laugh.”
The pair announced their engagement in 2020 on Instagram. The announcement coincided with the birthday of the UFC cash cow.
Thus, he wrote, “What a birthday, my future wife !” However, the couple has yet to tie the knot officially.
The illustrious career that McGregor built owns its credit to Devlin. When the MMA fighter quit plumbing, he left his home and ended with Devlin. Furthermore, McGregor had to enroll in a welfare scheme and Devlin did cleaning and worked as a server to keep them afloat.

Dee and Conor welcomed their first child together on May 5, 2017.
Conor Jack McGregor was born just months before McGregor’s historic boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas.
On January 4, 2019, Dee gave birth to the couple’s only daughter Croía.
Conor announced the birth of his daughter by posting a picture of him leaving the hospital with his two children.
In the post, Conor paid tribute to Dee as he said, “Heading home with my two healthy babies and an energised and healthy SuperMam.”
The couple’s third child, Rían McGregor, was born in May of this year.
McGregor again took to social media to share the good news with his fans.
He said, “The McGregor clan is now a family of 5. “Healthy baby boy delivered. “Baby and Mammy Wonder Woman are doing great.
Conor McGregor is currently busy preparing for his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier away from his family.
The Notorious has been training for the fight which will take place on July 10 in the hopes for a different outcome after he lost to the American fighter earlier this year.
In his Netflix documentary McGregor Forever, there is a scene that shows McGregor watching Nurmagomedov’s final fight with Justin Gaethje and reacting to his retirement.
He clapped and mentioned that ‘The Eagle’ was always talking about retiring from the sport and learned more about his reason why:
“Although I know, you know, he’s always had retirement on his mind. He’s not…he doesn’t really want to be in there too much I don’t think. So, it is what it is. He said he had a conversation with his mother and talked to her for three days, so it is what it is.”
‘The Notorious’ was then asked whether he was disappointed that a rematch with ‘The Eagle’ won’t happen.
He responded and remained optimistic that perhaps the former lightweight champion would change his mind and want to return, saying:
“Nah, it will happen [a rematch]. I don’t believe it, so I’m good. We’ll see what happens.”
Nurmagomedov has stayed true to the promise he made to his mother and remained retired from MMA.
Even when it seemed as though a fight with Hall of Famer Georges St-Pierre was a possibility, he never pursued it, which shows that he doesn’t have the desire to compete anymore.
