‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor suffered the first knockout loss of his career against Dustin ‘The Diamond‘ Poirier in the main event of UFC 257. McGregor was far from his usual explosive self inside the Octagon. It was clear that inactivity had caught up to his superior fighting skills. Nevertheless, the Irishman remains the biggest star in UFC history and he is enjoying his life outside the Octagon to the fullest.
McGregor is spending his stint at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi in style. He is staying in a 300 ft Moonlight II superyacht that is worth $780,000. It has 3D Cinema, spa, beauty salon, steam room, sauna, gym, and many more lucrative facilities. The ultra-luxurious yacht looks as stylish as it can get.
There’s no doubt the UFC has put in their best efforts to keep their biggest cash-cow happy. The legendary superstar deserves all the perks and treats he is getting, as it was him who helped transform the sport of MMA forever. He has been a phenomenon inside and outside fighting and has taken the UFC to lofty heights.
McGregor‘s stint at fight island didn’t go as he would have liked, as Dustin Poirier ended his UFC championship aspirations for the time being,
What’s in the future for the superstar remains to be seen as he has now lost 3 of his last 6 outings inside the Octagon. His power, precision, and speed just don’t look the same as his prime self. ‘The Notorious’ has achieved it all in the sport and in life. So, fighting anymore is not a mandate for him.
But, he’s still a supreme athlete, and the competitor in him wants to feel the adrenaline rush of stepping inside the Octagon. Inactivity just can’t be an option against this level of opposition, no matter how supreme one is as a fighter. So, McGregor either has to be as active as he was before, or he should think of hanging the gloves up.
