Life couldn’t be much better for Conor McGregor (pictured). After putting Jose Aldo to sleep to unify the UFC featherweight title to close out 2015, cementing his spot as the MMA’s top 145-pounder, McGregor starts out 2016 on Rolling Stone’s “25 Hottest Sex Symbols of 2015” list.
Sorry, ladies. McGregor is currently off the market with longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin, who could make plenty of hot lists in her own right.
McGregor is the biggest thing going in MMA today, so it’s understandable why Rolling Stones decided to hop on the “Notorious” bandwagon.
Here’s what Rolling Stone had to say about McGregor:
Depending on whom you ask, the 27-year-old McGregor is either an overhyped loudmouth or the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world – though if you ask him, chances are, he’ll say the latter. Very loudly. Regardless, after his record-setting 13 second KO of Jose Aldo at UFC 194, there’s no denying that the brash, brawling Irishman is currently the biggest star in mixed martial arts (sorry, Ronda); and now, he’s got Aldo’s Featherweight Championship, too. And while his accomplishments inside the Octagon are impressive, his flashy excesses outside of it make him legendary. Dropping half-a-million dollars on a pair of cars? Check. Debating the merits of purchasing a chimp as a mascot? Yep. Sparring with – the summarily talking shit about – Game of Thrones’ massive Mountain? You know it. In 2016, he says he’s going to move up a weight class in the hopes of claiming another belt, meaning that if you’re sick of him now, you’re shit outta luck; King Conor’s reign is just beginning. JM
