Conor McGregor remains one of the most well known MMA fighters in the history of combat sports and his accolades over the years speak for themselves. The Notorious is also known to trash talk often, with varied results. It seems Snoop Dogg had some praise for McGregor.
While Conor McGregor has backed up his trash talks in the past, more often than not, they have also resulted in embarrassing defeats for him. McGregor also doesn’t hold any title in the UFC.
Earlier this year, Conor McGregor topped Forbes Magazine’s list of the top-10 highest-paid athletes in 2021 as he had earned a total of $180 million over the last 12 months. He beat the likes of LeBron James, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and others to top the list.
While speaking on ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’, Snoop Dogg discussed Conor McGregor’s prowess as a businessman. Dogg gave McGregor massive props for his business decisions, comparing him to Tom Brady and LeBron James.
“Look at how Conor McGregor took his UFC s*** and started branding and making money here and there… He’s probably like one of the only ones. You don’t see a lot. You know what I’m saying, it’s like Tom Brady, he’s a one-of-one. There’s only one-of-one, LeBron James, he’s a one-of-one. But that creates an atmosphere to where some can follow. You probably won’t be as high as him but you’ll be in the same realm.”
Conor McGregor previously hinted at moving to the welterweight division once he returns to the Octagon. We will have to wait and see if he will do that or not next year.
