The 14th knockout against Jose Aldo, the unmatched performance against Eddie Alvarez, the war against Nate Diaz and the rivalry within the octagon with Khabib Nurmagomedov, Conor was part of some of the biggest fights in UFC history. However, which fight is the most important fight in Conor’s career?
Conor McGregor’s journey into the world of mixed martial arts was nothing short of spectacular. Conor made history by becoming the two-division champion of Cage Warriors.
Conor was just starting out as he led the Irish invasion of UFC after his illustrious race for Care Warriors.
Conor would have crossed the UFC featherweight division and dethroned longtime reigning champion Jose Aldo ensuring a monumental victory. The Notorious One would later win his second UFC title to become the first ever UFC two-division champion.

However, for Conor, none of those wins can match victory over Nate Diaz. Conor McGregor suffered his first defeat against Nate Diaz. For the first time in his UFC career, Conor faced adversity within the octagon. But it turned out that the loss against Diaz would give birth to probably the biggest fight in Conor’s career.
Fans of the fight love a good return story. And that’s what they witnessed when Conor faced Nate Diaz in a long-awaited rematch. Conor secured a split win over Diaz after a 5 round war. That rematch entered the history book as one of the MMA’s biggest fights.
And recently, when Conor came across the fight on social media, he couldn’t help but react with the tweet below.

The most important of my life.

Many fans could argue that the fight against Jose Aldo and the fight against Eddie Alvarez was the most important fight in Conor’s career. However, Conor calls Diaz revenge the most important fight of his career and rightly so. The rivalry between Conor and Nate was intense in the second fight and Conor had the last laugh ensuring victory in the rematch.
However, it can be argued that the biggest battle in Conor’s career is yet to come. If Conor faces Khabib Nurmagomedov in a rematch for the UFC light title, then it will be a fight that Conor would not want to lose. A victory Khabib Nurmagomedov will surely cement Conor’s legacy as one of the largest ever in the octagon.
