Conor McGregor’s move into the mainstream, a la Ronda Rousey, continues. Last week Rolling Stone named CM one of the 25 hottest sex symbols of 2015.
“The biggest star in mixed martial arts,” the mag called McGregor, who won the UFC featherweight championship in Vegas last month in only 13 seconds.
McGregor’s fellow 2015 hotties include Amy Schumer, golfer Jordan Speith, new Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, Kylie Jenner and...Bernie Sanders.
“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,” Rolling Stone says of Dubliner McGregor.
“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 s*** outta luck; King Conor's reign is just beginning.”
Speaking of cars, the 27-year-old just added another one to his collection which he posted on Twitter – a 500 series Benz. “#Picturemerolling,” he said.
CM is also ready to roll over boxer Floyd Mayweather, who suggested last week that Conor’s success is down in part to race.
“Floyd Mayweather, don't ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are,” McGregor replied.
