It’s a whole different feeling when Conor McGregor is fighting. It’s a celebration when the Notorious walks inside the Octagon, and it has been evident from the let go. The former dual champion has time and again proved why is the most popular fighter in not just mixed martial arts, but combat sports as it stands today. UFC president Dana White appeared alongside Mac Life ahead of UFC 264 in what promises to be one of the biggest events of this year.

It won’t be wrong to say that the level of excitement and anticipation that McGregor creates is on par with some of the greatest combat sports athletes the world has ever seen. So it wasn’t surprising to see Dana White compare McGregor to the former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.
“There’s this buzz and energy around a McGregor fight that reminds you of Tyson’s days. You know, he is at a level of Tyson, Holyfield, De La Hoya when they were on top and the list goes on. He is one of the all-time moneymakers for Vegas.”
