UFC Featherweight, Conor McGregor, is still mending an ACL tear in his left knee that occurred during his bout with Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26 back in August. The injury has not kept McGregor out of the spotlight, as he continues to grow a legion of fans with his trash talk. McGregor has found a way to keep himself in the headlines with brash statements, twitter battles with Diego Sanchez, and bold interviews.
Today, McGregor took to Twitter to show off his finished chest tattoo.

Well, it is certainly eye-opening to say the least. With McGregor’s growing popularity we are almost certain to hear Dana White discuss this in a media scrum in the near future. McGregor’s tattoo is definitely the boldest in the UFC today. It puts Alan Belcher’s Johnny Cash tattoo to shame. Even Cub Swanson’s palm trees can not rival McGregor’s new ink. Could the tattoo increase McGregor’s popularity, or possibly deter sponsors? Either way, this is certainly an interesting decision by Conor McGregor.
