Conor “The Notorious” McGregor is a professional mixed martial artist and professional boxer who quickly made a name for himself in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). McGregor’s rise in the UFC took place just over two years, “We’re not here to take part. We’re here to take over.” Along with the support of his fans, McGregor did exactly that, winning 13 bouts between February 2011 and January 2015. After knocking out Dennis Siver, McGregor leapt over the Octagon fence to challenge Jose Aldo, the UFC’s pound-for-pound king. McGregor’s 18-2 record includes a 6-0 mark in the UFC, 16 knockouts, one submission win, and 12 first-round finishes. McGregor has recently neglected this record to fight as a professional boxer against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather. Unfortunately, he did not continue his take over, but millions of fans and viewers watched him fight in one of the biggest boxing matches of all time.
As a UFC fighter, McGregor is permitted to consume marijuana while not in competition, but he’s already proven that rules don’t apply because he does what he wants. A number of other UFC fighters have confirmed and spoken out about their marijuana use, so it certainly is no surprise if McGregor consumes, since marijuana has been proven to heal the injuries suffered from fighting. While in New York City for a fight against Eddie Alvarez, McGregor posted a picture alluding to his consumption. Now that he’s endured some of the hardest punches from Mayweather, McGregor might actually want to consume some cannabis to ease his pain.
