Conor McGregor Lands Cover of Sports Illustrated Magazine
Fox Sports – This week UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor becomes just the third MMA fighter to ever be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. McGregor graces the magazines’s cover with its name in all Irish green and the headline, Conor McGregor puts the fight in Fighting Irish…and the fear in the rest of the UFC.
In the cover story, McGregor talks about reaching the top of MMA, so quickly, despite a humble start. “I just figured out that if I gave my all into this game – if I put everything into the fight business – then I would eventually run the fight business,” he said.
“That’s where we are right now.”
Conor lands on the cover of SI and he didn’t have to wear body paint. That is a loss for the world. Everybody wants to know what a guy that confident is packing in his cup. He has to be hung like a horse. I bet that is the reason he hits so hard. People say you want to throw your legs into each punch and this man has an extra one. Conor is not just Irish, he is also black…from the waist down.
