One of America's most beloved fighters is Conor McGregor. You could even say that he's loved internationally - in Ireland, at least. And if you're not a fan of UFC, McGregor may not be a household name yet, but he's certainly getting close to that level of popularity.
McGregor has been fighting for many years, and he just made his UFC debut in 2013 against Marcus Brimage on Fuel TV. Since that first fight, McGregor has been taking names, setting records, and becoming a powerhouse fighter. Outside of being known for his talent, he's also known for being a huge smack-talker when it comes to his opponents. If you don't love him for his talent, you at least get a laugh out of the things he says during interviews.
While it may seem like all there is to McGregor is fighting, you're dead wrong. There's a ton more to The Notorious Conor McGregor than what meets the eye. Here are 15 little-known facts about Conor McGregor.

One of the most infamous fighters in the UFC known for fast knockouts is Ronda Rousey. Her fastest fight record is 14 seconds against Cat Zingano, in which she won because of an armbar submission. Her longest fight, that she still won, was four minutes and forty nine seconds against Liz Carmouche. McGregor, believe it or not, has a fight that finished faster than anyone else in the UFC. Unfortunately, the fight was not a UFC fight, so it doesn't go down in their records. At Immortal Fighting Championship in 2011, McGregor fought Patrick Doherty. McGregor finished Doherty in a whopping four seconds with two hits, and he delivered one last punch before the ref broke them up. After the news of this, fighter Duane Ludwig came to his own defense and said that he also had a knockout of four seconds even though in the records it's listed as 11.
