15 rare pictures of Conor McGregor you need to see
With the real thing nowhere in sight, we'll have to make do with these cool pictures
Even the most casual of casual fans know that Conor McGregor, in just a few years, has revolutionized the sport of mixed martial arts. He went from standing in a queue to collect $235 welfare cheques to making $30 million in his boxing debut against no less than the legendary Floyd Mayweather.
But just like the recent super blue blood moon, McGregor's iridescence that lit up the MMA world briefly has all but vanished.

So in the meantime, here's a little aperitif to tide over everyone who has a bad case of the McGregor munchies
