Analysing Conor McGregor’s ‘Notorious’ Instagram account: What it tells us about the man

Mayweather v McGregor 10/08/2017

Ahead of a massive clash with Floyd Mayweather on August 26, Conor McGregor is preparing hard for the fight of his life.

Fans and media alike can keep up with the Irishman’s going ons daily as McGregor keeps everyone abreast of his activities via his ‘Notorious’ Instagram account.

The only ever two-weight UFC champion has posted over 1200 times during the lifespan of his account and The Betway Insider has analysed McGregor’s movements through this eye-catching infographic from the summer of 2013 to July this year.

Looking through McGregor’s Instagram shows he was relatively shy when first taking to the social media platform, posting just a few times per month initially.

As his reputation grew though, McGregor lavish lifestyle began to eventually take over.

Two years ago, McGregor went from posting around four times per month to over thirty and with that his followers grew to the millions and millions we see today.

Name-dropping other celebrities crept in, whilst more and more snapshots of him training and spending time in the USA were added.

His lavish ‘Mac Life’ began to take to the fore, whilst McGregor’s actual fighting took a back seat. Fashion, cars and watches replaced knocking people out and were even more apparent than his love life.

But only thing in McGregor’s heart that has been able to penetrate the material side is son Conor Jr. who is a regular in posts since his birth in the spring of 2017.

With the Mayweather Pay-Per-View encounter sending his reputation even further into the stratosphere, McGregor has once again begun posting about trading blows.

Maybe his dominance in the UFC made McGregor less boastful about ‘bouncing heads off the floor’ – but that has since be reignited once he signed on the dotted line to move into the boxing ring.

That being said, it’s easy to pinpoint what McGregor cares about the most and shows the family man he’s become since Conor Jr. came on the scene.

Fighting is still the biggest part of his money-making life, although once the dust settles on the Mayweather bout, it may become more difficult for McGregor to gee himself up for a lower paycheck.
