The multi-weight UFC champion and successful businessman is well positioned to show prospective traders that investing is accessible to everyone. McGregor was also keen to highlight the similarities between investing and sports in his opening statement…
UFC Champion Turned Forbes’ Highest Paid Athlete
Conor McGregor is best known for being the first UFC fighter to win two weight divisions simultaneously – the UFC Featherweight Championship in 2015 and the UFC Lightweight Championship in 2016.
A now familiar face, McGregor featured in the top six highest-grossing pay-per-view events for the UFC. He also has the largest following on social media, with over 70 million followers across all platforms.
But while McGregor has the highest career earnings for a UFC athlete, he is also successful outside of the Octagon. The entrepreneur founded Proper No. Twelve Whiskey in 2018, which became the fastest-growing brand on the market. He has also invested in several successful ventures, including McGregorFast fitness experience, the Black Forge Inn in Dublin, a video game series, and Forged Irish Stout. These enterprises saw McGregor top the 2021 Forbes Highest-Paid Athletes list.
McGregor’s success both in and out of the sports arena has made him an attractive partner for global trading brokerage, XTB. The well-known mixed martial artist shares many of the values of the fintech trading firm, including “determination, persistence in pursuing goals, and the willingness to constantly develop and achieve the best results,” as highlighted by Omar Arnaout, CEO of XTB.
McGregor also commented on the new partnership: “I am delighted to have become the official ambassador of one of the world’s leading investment companies for the coming years. I believe sport and investing require the same features: commitment, mental tenacity and the ability to set personal goals. That’s why I was happy to start a partnership with XTB – a recognized global investment company that supports its clients to facilitate their investment objectives.”
