McGregor, 33, is the biggest moneymaking star in UFC history. The Notorious was the first UFC fighter to ever hold two titles in two different weight divisions simultaneously, capturing both the featherweight and lightweight belts.
Most recently, he lost to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 last July when he fractured his leg at the end of the first round. McGregor has been training for a comeback from the devastating injury later this year.
McGregor has also had his fair share of run-ins with the law, including several driving offenses and an arrest in Brooklyn in 2018 when he threw a dolly through a bus window after a media day in an effort to get at rival UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov.
In 2019, he pleaded guilty to assault after punching an older man at a Dublin bar and was fined 1,000 euros.
