Conor McGregor was already the biggest male star in the UFC before he knocked out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds at UFC 194 earlier this month, and now his celebrity status is seemingly limitless.
He drops half a million on fancy cars in his spare time. He responds to envious fighters who call him out with quotes like, "I want them to beg me." He knows he's the current jackpot that every other fighter is trying to cash in on. It's McGregor's world right now in the UFC.
McGregor is such a big deal and making the UFC so much cash that WWE Hall of Fame broadcaster Jim Ross heaped quite the compliment on him, calling McGregor the UFC's version of Hulk Hogan.
