Conor McGregor sure knows his to keep his name in the headlines.
Despite having only fought once in the Octagon in the past two years, the brash Irishman has demanded shares in the UFC company for the ongoing revenue he generates for the company, believing himself to be instrumental in WME-IMG’s $4 billion dollar deal with the UFC in 2016.
The latest round of headlines focuses on McGregor’s challenge to TV host Conan O’Brien and Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg, who both own minor shares in the premiere fight promotion.
‘The Notorious’ has jokingly offered to fight O’Brien and Wahlberg on the same night, with all their UFC shares on the line.

Shortly after McGregor posted his tweet Hollywood’s Sylvester Stallone, who also owns shares in the UFC, caught up with TMZ Sports and said he would be willing to share a portion of his equity with the former champ-champ.
“Absolutely. Of course. I got an extra room in the house,” Stallone said.
McGregor last fought at UFC 229, where he was submitted by undefeated lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event. It’s not known when the former featherweight and lightweight champ will return to the cage, although it’s speculated that McGregor could be in negotiations for a fight against Tony Ferguson.
