Connor McGregor asserts that the toughest opponent he faced in his career was the recognition of the weight loss he faced in his career.
Since making his debut in 2013, “The Infamous” has faced some of the UFC’s most dangerous fighters in three weight categories.

Since that knockout victory over Marcus Brimage in the very first round, McGregor has become a monster in the MMA world and has surpassed the sport.
In 2016, the 33-year-old made history by becoming the first fighter in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously.
Although his record after the win against Eddie Alvarez is a bit dubious, there is no doubt about his stardom.
Despite the defeats of Khabib Noormagomedov, Dustin Porier and Nate Diaz, the Irishman told fans during a Q&A on Twitter that his toughest opponent was “Scales”.
The Irishman is not a fan of weight loss
McGregor was virtually a skeleton at UFC 194 weight
Before his last feather fight against Jose Aldoi at UFC 194, McGregor was thin and tired when he reached the 145-pound weight limit.
Since then, he has struggled only with weight loss or welterweight, always suggesting to return to 170 pounds.
Kamar Usman is the current champion and looks more dangerous than ever, but McGregor is confident that he can add a third UFC World Cup title to his collection – in a style that gives emp.
Kamaru Usman could not escape the wrath of McGregor
The Irishman is now recovering from a fractured tibia, the fibula he experienced against Porier in their triangular fight last month.
Although it started well, McGregor was full of shots from above and broke his ankle inside the octagon after attempting a sharp blow.
He hopes to fight back at the UFC in 2022.
