Already a global fighting and fitness icon, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor’s image now graces the cover of Sports Illustrated.
It’s the first SI cover for the brash Irishman, who was scheduled to fight lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 on March 5 in an attempt to become the first UFC fighter to capture titles in two weight classes.
