Conor Mcgregor was the most popular UFC fighter of last year for Morton East students.

According to Joshua Wooller on, Conor is funny, humble and backs up all his trash talk which is why he is one of the most famous fighters in the UFC. In my opinion Conor Mcgregor is one of the most charismatic, flamboyant and exciting fighters outside the octagon. He never gives a boring interview, he’s always looking to excite the crowd and he has an individual style that makes him stand out. He also is one of the best trash talkers in the sport and, in the past, held 2 belts simultaneously. In a random poll of 80 Morton East students and Cicero residents, 63 said that Conor Mcgregor was the most known UFC fighter.

“Theatrics and the fact that he has two belts. Conor might not be the best UFC fighter in either weight class, but he did win both weight classes fair and square. So when you have a mouth like his we get a character we haven’t seen in the octagon before.” Daniel Prestwich said.

Jon Jones came in second place with 24 votes. He is considered the GOAT of the UFC. According to the UFC stats page he holds many UFC records in the light heavyweight division, including the most title defenses, most wins, longest win streak, and most submission victories. He has conquered the light heavy weight division so he is moving on to conquer the heavyweight division.

“All things considered, I believe he is the greatest MMA fighter of all time, I believe when he does go to the heavyweight division, he will clear out that division as well.” Collis Stainbank on said.

Khabib Nurmagomedov came in third place with 22 votes. Khabib is a Russian former professional mixed martial artist. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters in mixed martial arts history, and currently holds the lightweight champion belt with 28 wins and 0 loses.

“He’s just on such another level that the odds of beating him drop significantly after the first minute-and-a-half,” Joe Rogan said.

Stipe Miocic received the fewest votes. Even though he is not widely known Stipe is the greatest heavyweight of all time with 20 wins and 3 loses.

“Stipe Miocic has defeated many popular and respected heavyweights so I think it’s safe to say he is the heavyweight GOAT.” Maz Maju said on
