Conor McGregor Tom Egan

Discovers MMA


Having become a skilled boxer, McGregor’s interest in MMA is ignited when he begins sparring with Egan, his friend.

I met Tom who was just grappling at the time. Around the same time we discovered MMA, so I’d head up to his gym in Kildare and we’d teach each other what we knew, then scrap at the end of it.
