At A Glance: Conor McGregor's Rise To Stardom In The UFC

"I am cocky in prediction. I am confident in preperation. But I am always humble in victory or defeat." - Conor McGregor
UFC Rising: Conor McGregor aired on FOX Sports 1 ahead of Fight Night Boston on Jan. 12, and it’s now available on UFC FIGHT PASS.

The series, UFC Rising, focuses on emerging stars of the UFC, and McGregor has clearly established himself as one of the premier stars in the sport of MMA today. In this special, “The Notorious” breaks down a few of his fights in The Film Room, and showcases his unbelievable athleticism in The Lab.

It’s been a rise like no other for McGregor since he entered the UFC back in April 2013. Relive some of his most moving interviews inside the Octagon:

After making his long-awaited return at Fight Night Dublin, McGregor brought the house down against Diego Brandao. He then went on to speak for a riveting three minutes in front of his hometown crowd.

McGregor then moved on to his first top 10 opponent in Dustin Poirier at UFC 178. He predicted the first-round finish once again, and went on to deliver a few more memorable one-liners.

In his latest triumph, McGregor could barely contain the emotions afterward, jumping out of the cage to acknowledge UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, who was sitting in the first row. Boston became like McGregor’s second home that night, and he went on to talk about Aldo and his performance.
