Conor McGregor is currently UFC’s most marketable star. As loud as he is confident, the charismatic Irishman has the skills to back it up. Though he hasn’t been in the international spotlight for long, he’s already a social media pro. He shares video of his knockouts and fight promos, as well as pictures of his friends, title belts, and toys. Right now, the only thing as big as his performance in the Octagon, is his personality outside of it.
