McGregor, an icon of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), who goes by the nickname ‘Notorious’, is no stranger to controversy.

He hit the headlines in 2019 for an attack on an older man in a Dublin bar captured in a viral video. In 2018 he pled guilty in Brooklyn, New York to disorderly conduct after attacking a bus filled with UFC fighters.

In June, he announced his retirement for the third time, after twice returning to the octagon.
