It has been a massive 12 months in the life of Conor McGregor, but his ever-increasing status has seemingly not affected him.
His vocality outside of the Octagon, ability to rattle opponents, bold suits, and nice cars would suggest otherwise, but a post from ‘The Notorious’ Dubliner in 2011 confirms he has always had his trademark confidence, and gift of the gab.
As reported by Buzz.ie, McGregor headed online to respond to being called out by fellow Irish fighter Conor Dillon, and his message is just vintage McGregor.
3 years ago today I made history by becoming a two-weight World Champion in MMA. I’ve been making history ever since.
McGregor reportedly posted to Boards.ie:
Dont worry folks i reply to any call out even if it is against a little white guy who thinks he is a big black guy,,,,
Conor Dillon that broken foot was the best thing that ever happened to you that night and you know it
You left that ring lookin like your hero snoop dogg, black and blue
Walkin around with a death row records chain around your neck you bum your a five foot nothing pastey white kerry bum you remind me of that donkey Chris ”Menace to absolutly [email protected]@king nothing” Stringer with his bandana on you guys should fight,, winner takes the losers 2pac posters

August 2012!! After winning my first World Title for Cage Warriors. What a difference a productive year can make. The journey has only begun
It would appear that nothing about McGregor’s approach to MMA has changed but the size of the cheques he banks, and the number of cameras pointed in his direction in the build up to a fight.
And with results like last Saturday night where he became the UFC’s first ever two-division champion, it’s hard to argue that early confidence was ever misplaced.
