UFC 194: Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor

Current UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor is one of the biggest and most recognizable athletes on the planet, but it’s in his native Ireland that fans adore him the most.

For that reason, there was actually a fan submitted proposal that made its rounds in December that asked for the Irish government to seriously consider putting the guy’s face onto the €1 coin because, you know, he should be idolized after his 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo at UFC 194.


The proposed artwork (seen above), was both hilarious and appropriate, but, unfortunately, Irish Parliament has passed on the idea following a meeting today to discuss the topic.
