UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor has made his first magazine cover appearance following his record breaking win at #UFC205. The Irishman has been chosen as Muscle & Fitness magazine's cover for the month of November.
It's not hard to see why the publication would want the two-division champion on their cover since he's the biggest draw in UFC history. McGregor poses on the cover in his green UFC fight shorts and black gloves (which he wore in his fight with Nate Diaz at UFC 202) leading me to believe this is an old photo and perhaps McGregor did not pose for the cover image recently.
The publication touts an article chronicling the rise of the "savvy striker and unabashed tongue lasher," from a plumber to a UFC champion.
The issue also includes a Q&A with McGregor's striking coach Owen Roddy.
But, the best part is the free pull out poster of McGregor that I plan on tacking above my bed. Sorry, not sorry!
