Conor McGregor has had an indisputably spectacular career, and his raw talent has helped propel the UFC and the sport in general to new heights in terms of public popularity. 

Of course, McGregor is the UFC’s biggest box office draw, with some of the most profitable pay-per-views in combat sports. His fights with Nate Diaz were both blockbusters, and his 2018 bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov broke the UFC’s all-time PPV sales record.

With an estimated net worth of more than $200 million, ‘The Notorious’ is now the highest-paid athlete on the UFC roster. After selling his whiskey company, he topped Forbes’ list of top-earning athletes in 2021. Recent UFC fans however need to be reminded of the legacy that follows, so here is a list of every Conor McGregor finish ever.

Conor McGregor v. Marcus Brimage: On April 6, 2013, McGregor made his octagon debut against Marcus Brimage in a three-round featherweight battle. The 24-year-old enthralled fight fans not just with his incredible performance and charming demeanour, but also with his sheer size as a featherweight. He won the fight by TKO in the first round, placing himself on the international stage.

Conor McGregor v. Diego Brandã: Conor McGregor competed in the UFC for the third time at UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs Brandao. The bout took place in a crowded setting in the Irishman’s hometown of Dublin. The knockout of Brandao in the first round won him the ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus.

Conor McGregor v. Dustin Poirier: After knocking out Diego Brandao in the first round, he landed a fight against Dustin Poirier, one of the top featherweight fighters at the time. McGregor knocked out Poirier with a shot after keeping him on his toes with a couple of early spin kicks and avoiding an expected Poirier uppercut. He won by TKO after only one minute and 46 seconds of fighting.

Conor McGrgegor v. Dennis Siver: In his first ever headlining fight, he takes on Dennis Siver at the TD Garden in Boston, knowing that a win would earn him a shot at then-champion Jose Aldo. McGregor eventually won near the middle of the second round, finishing Siver on the ground after dropping him with a hard body punch.

Conor McGregor v Chad Mendes: McGregor declared to everybody who would listen that he would defeat Chad “Money” Mendes. He backs his talk with a second-round TKO win against Mendes in the main event of UFC 189 on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

Conor McGregor v. Jose Aldo: Conor McGregor famously knocked out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds at UFC 194 in December 2015 to earn undisputed UFC featherweight belt. After victory, McGregor became a global phenomenon, capping an amazing ascent to the top of the sport.

Conor McGregor v. Eddie Alvarez: Conor went up in weight to challenge then-UFC lightweight champion Alvarez at UFC 205, where he put on a striking masterclass and stopped Alvarez via second-round TKO. With the victory, ‘Notorious’ became the UFC’s first-ever simultaneous double-champion, holding both the featherweight and lightweight championships.

Conor McGregor v. Donald Cerrone: In his first UFC fight in 15 months after losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov, the Irishman finished Cerrone in 40 seconds, the second-fastest in his career. McGregor’s amazing head kick and left punch placed Cerrone on the ropes early on, and the bout was stopped by the referee. McGregor’s first win since his victory against Eddie Alvarez in November 2016.
