The Notorious has been known to play effective mind games before his fights, which pays dividend when an opponent comes into the Octagon thrown off their game completely.
The Irishman is abrasive and is one of the biggest characters in UFC history, his hilarious outbursts have often caught the attention of other media forms and people who aren’t big fight fans are drawn in by him.
Conor McGregor in the UFC
McGregor’s personality goes hand-in-hand with his success. He was the first man to hold UFC titles in two weight classes at the same time, having been a former featherweight and lightweight double-champion.
When he won the featherweight title against Jose Aldo, he did so in just 13 seconds, which remains one of his most iconic performances.
He has 22 wins from his 28 UFC fights, but hasn’t stepped into the Octagon since he lost in consecutive fights to Dustin Poirier, the latter of which featured McGregor suffering fractures to his tibia and fibula.

It’s unclear when he will next compete in the UFC, though, he has plenty to keep himself busy such as his own whisky company.
He remains an entertaining presence even when away from the UFC, however. His social media accounts are often the place to go to keep up with how he is filling his time, but recently he posted something quite strange.
On his Twitter, ‘The Notorious One’ shared a voice note. It was captioned, ‘the most power Twitter has ever seen,’ which he has also used for a clip of himself flexing his muscles in a previous post. But, what was weird was that the voice message just consisted of him repeating the phrase in various different voices and accents. Some were deep and gristly whilst others were high-pitched and silly.

Fans were understandably confused by this, with many in the replies wondering what McGregor was up to. It seems completely random and provided a laugh for many.
Some may say that it’s out of character for the Irishman to go off the rails like this, but as he’s shown before, nothing is ever really off limits for him.
Perhaps Conor McGregor has finally reached breaking point and lost his mind, or maybe there is something that this is leading up to.
Whatever is going on, he certainly has the attention of fans and is keeping people guessing about the context of the clip.
