Video: UFC chronicles Cage Warriors wins that led to ‘Rise of Conor McGregor’

Before Conor McGregor became the UFC’s biggest star, he was an up-and-coming fighter just like the rest of them.

Ahead of McGregor’s first fight of 2021, the UFC has released a video chronicling his rise from two-division Cage Warriors champion to two-division UFC champion. Included in the clip are McGregor’s pre-UFC wins over Aaron Jahnsen, Steve O’Keefe, Dave Hill, and Ivan Buchinger.

Watch the video above to see the four highlight-reel finishes that propelled “The Notorious” to a spot in the UFC and his place in history.

Up next for McGregor, he rematches Dustin Poirier in the lightweight main event of UFC 257 on Jan. 23 in Abu Dhabi.
