“Conor McGregor puts the fight in Fighting Irish . . . and the fear in the rest of the UFC”.
That’s what the headline reads on the front of Sports Illustrated magazine.
The all green theme, just a month before St. Patrick’s Day and one of the biggest fights of McGregor’s career at UFC 196, tells the tale of how an Irish fighter has become the biggest name in mixed martial arts, outside of Ronda Rousey.
McGregor joins only Rousey and Roger Huerta as the only UFC fighters to grace the Sports Illustrated magazine cover.
L. Jon Wertheim’s full magazine story on McGregor, which chronicles his rise to UFC stardom, will debut Wednesday morning on SI.com along with McGregor’s SI Films feature.Follow MyMMANews.com on Social Media
