It is very well known that Conor McGregor was on welfare before signing with the UFC. ‘The Notorious’ was constantly supported throughout the way by his fiance, Dee Devlin. Conor also admitted that he would not be where he is if his fiance had not supported him. 

We can find similar stories with other fighters such as Dustin Poirier, whose success is the by-product of unwavering support from his wife Jolie Poirier, who drove him around in her car for his fights early on in his career. The pair also slept in their car as they did not have money to pay for accommodation. Therefore, it is only apt that on Valentine’s day, fighters took to social media to celebrate their partners
