McGregor had a rough time growing up and started training in boxing when he was 12 to defend himself against bullies. At 17, he had to move from Crumlin to Lucan, Dublin, Ireland, where he worked as an apprentice plumber. In 2006, McGregor met Tom Egan, and both started training in MMA.

Even though Conor McGregor was a Cage Warriors double champion at 24, he was still under his parent's roof, earning money from social welfare schemes.


'The Notorious' earned his first lucrative payout by TKO'ing Marcus Brimage in 2013. McGregor made $76,000(including a 'Knockout of the Night' bonus) for his UFC debut.
