The Irishman, from Crumlin in Dublin, has been active since 2008 but turned pro in 2017.

He has been with his girlfriend Dee Devlin, since 2008, and their first son was born on May 5, 2017.

In 2017, McGregor announced he would take time off from the UFC to wait for the birth of his first child.

He has been crowned at the top of his game in both featherweight and now lightweight categories, but was stripped of his lightweight champion on Thursday, April 5.

On the same day he is alleged to have carried out a violent attack on his rvials' bus at the UFC 223, and has now been charged with assault and banned from the prestigious contest.

McGregor has earned a staggering amount in his decade-long career.

The MMA superstar is known mostly as a striker and prefers to fight standing up as opposed to on the ground.

In 2017 McGregor was rated number 24 on Forbes World's Highest-Paid Athletes.

His net worth in December 2017 was estimated at $34million (£24.2million).

As well as amassing a salary and winnings of $27million (£19million) in salary and winnings, he has also racked up $7million (£5million) on sponsorship and endorsements.

What happened in the New York bus attack and was he charged?

In April 2018 in a moment of madness, he burst into the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and threw a dolly into fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov's bus.

McGregor was allowed to return to Ireland, but returns to court on June 14 and is facing a maximum jail sentence of seven years.

The bus attack left Mike Chiesa and Ray Borg injured and unable to appear at UFC 223 in Brooklyn on Saturday night.

MMA champ Khabib Nurmagomedov and Artem Lobov are believed to have had a minor altercation in which Khabib Nurmagomedov cornered Lobov.

The groups are said to have a history of lengthy insults and confrontations.

Then, two days later on Thursday, April 5, McGregor, Lobov and a group of others allegedly attacked a bus with Nurmagomedov and his teammates on as they left the UFC 223 arena in Brooklyn.

McGregor allegedly ran up alongside the slowly moving bus and then ran past it to grab a metal equipment dolly, which he then threw at the bus's window.

Lightweight Michael Chiesa received several facial cuts, while flyweight Ray Borg suffered an eye injury.

Lobov has also been removed from the bill, due to his alleged involvement in the altercation.
