Conor McGregor Fight: Early loss against Artemij Sitenkov in 2008
McGregor’s defeat against Artemij Sitenkov of Lithuania was on the opposite end of the spectrum from his defeat to Mayweather regarding audience size and visibility. In the Irishman’s third professional match, which took place in 2008, he was defeated via first-round kneebar, according to Sherdog.
The Irish star entered the match with just a 2-0 record, whereas Sitenkov entered the game with a 5-4 record and far more experience. To take on such a project so early in your career requires guts.
Conor McGregor Fight: Against the “Irish Joe” in 2010
This defeat, which occurred in McGregor’s sixth professional match under the Cage Warriors banner in 2010, also happened early in his career. According to Sherdog, the official end time of the first round is 0:38.
On the other hand, it appeared to be a rather tough loss. It’s somewhat understandable, given that he was an outstanding fighter in his own right and that Conor McGregor was still a relative newcomer to the sport at the time. In actuality, “Irish Joe” finally acquired his UFC contract.

Conor McGregor Fight: first UFC Conor McGregor loss against Nate Diaz in 2016
McGregor’s defeat at UFC 196 in 2016 is undoubtedly his most well-known defeat, and for a good reason. The Irish star agreed to a last-minute welterweight match against Nate Diaz.
After an excellent first round, McGregor slowed down considerably in the second. After taking heavy blows on the feet, he foolishly attempted to take down his opponent, who was skilled in submissions. He was tapping to a rear-naked choke moments later.
Conor McGregor loss against Floyd Mayweather in 2017
If the audience number only determined the significance of a loss, this one would top our list. 4.3 million people watched on pay-per-view when McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. squared off in a boxing match in 2017.
The fight was McGregor’s first professional boxing match against the greatest boxer of all time, although his unwavering confidence and explosive knockout power made it reasonably thrilling. There was almost no doubt that Mayweather would triumph.
Conor McGregor loss: Biggest UFC PPV match against Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018
Like his defeat to Mayweather, McGregor’s defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov was seen by a sizable crowd. It was the main event of UFC 229, the most lucrative pay-per-view in the organization’s history. It felt significant only based on that.
But McGregor’s relentless trash talk before the bout made this defeat meaningful. He spoke the right words, but he did not act accordingly. Instead, he was repeatedly brought to the ground, restrained, and finally submitted with a fourth-round neck crank.
Two losses against Dustin Poirier in 2021
In the second fight at UFC 264, Poirier defeated McGregor for the second time in six months after McGregor was unable to continue after the first round.
Good to hear Dustin, I hope so. As last time you backed up and shot inside the first 30 seconds. I’ll be in the middle from the very go if you want it. You know that. I’ll be ready for the tactics this time too tho.
See you in there. https://t.co/RMiwF1rpGD

Following a blow from Poirier (28-6), McGregor (22-6) was knocked to the ground and never got up. When McGregor stepped back from the strike, his leg and ankle buckled, and Poirier ended the round by pelting the former two-division UFC champion with punches.
