Conor McGregor is among the most divisive figures in the Fighting world. The Notorious One is infamous for utilising smack talk to hype his fights and influence the minds of his rivals. McGregor has already gotten under most of his opponents’ skins by making good use of his memory of a goldfish. However, the Irishman has stated numerous times that he employs trash talk to conduct psychological games with his competitor and that there is no deep hatred.

Conor McGregor has been praised for his appreciation for his opponents after so many fights, both in triumph and failure.

Here are some of the best inspirational moments by the notorious Conor McGregor.

1. Conor McGregor hugged Nate Diaz after their second match

They fought twice in the UFC, first at UFC 196 and then again at UFC 202.

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz hugged each other in a stunning gesture of understanding and respect just after the second fight, which was a back-and-forth blowout.

2. Setting Records in New York

The opportunity to be the first UFC fighter to carry two championships in different groups at the very same time, and to do so at the company’s first ever show in Madison Square Garden.
