This info right here is why McGregor will always be a major draw in the UFC. He hasn’t been a major winner in a long time.
In fact, since 2018, the Irish-born superstar is 1-3 in fights. That’s not great!

Yet, despite the fact that McGregor isn’t doing a ton of winning, he’s still selling an outrageous amount of PPVs.
It just goes to show that fans will tune in for the UFC legend whether or not he’s even at the top of his game.
So, in case you were wondering whether or not McGregor will fight again in the UFC, this info should tell you everything you need to know.
