Jon Jones specifically stated that Conor McGregor is the only fighter who inspires him on a business level, while his respect for other fighters is limited to the mutual respect between athletes. Needless to say, Conor McGregor changed the face of mixed martial arts from the moment he stepped inside the octagon. McGregor’s achievements inside the octagon in such a short period of time remains unparalleled, and his rise from a UFC fighter to a global athlete is nothing less than phenomenal.

Conor McGregor has produced the highest UFC PPVs in the history of the organization with multiple PPV fights including his wars with Nate Diaz, lightweight title fight against Eddie Alvarez, and his grudge match against Khabib Nurmagomedov. McGregor has rarely failed to cross the $10 million gate mark and created history in his return fight against Donald Cerrone back at UFC 246. There’s no denying that McGregor’s bussiness acumen stands league apart from his contempories, and his ability to sell fights will remain untouched for time to come.
