Conor McGregor Odds: Career UFC Betting Odds History

Conor McGregor has taken the combat sports world by storm since entering the UFC in April 2013. His rare combination of unparalleled bravado and unique striking ability has made him the most polarizing UFC fighter of all time. His ability to back up his words in impressive fashion sets him apart from other fighters, as he’s recorded eight TKO/KO finishes in his 14 UFC fights.

Going back to his time outside the UFC, the 32-year-old Irishman has won 22 of his 28 pro fights. He finished 19 of those fights by TKO/KO, one by submission and two by decision.

From the start of Conor McGregor’s career, he had a lot of shine. Odds of -155 made him a betting favorite in his UFC debut vs Marcus Brimage in 2013 and he has closed as a favorite in all but two fights since. McGregor’s high was -950 vs Dennis Siver at the start of 2015. Meanwhile, against hard-nosed fighter and cardio king Nate Diaz in a welterweight bout at UFC 202, McGregor’s fight odds were -155.

McGregor was an underdog for the first time in his UFC career vs Jose Aldo at UFC 194, closing at -105 before knocking out the Brazilian in 13 seconds.

After Dustin Poirier flattened McGregor, crushing the Irishman's dreams as a -315 favorite, the two rivals ran it back at UFC 264, where "Notorious" broke his leg at the end of Round 1. That defeat to Poirier made it three losses in the last four fights for "Mystic Mac," but a new challenge is on the horizon.

The Ultimate Fighter 31: McGregor vs Michael Chandler

Odds as of May 17

Surprise, surprise, McGregor's stock is soaring once again. The MMA superstar is getting his own Netflix documentary, and he'll make his return as a coach on the Ultimate Fighter Season 31 opposite Michael Chandler. "Iron Mike" is the embodiment of vanilla cranked to 11, so there's no doubt McGregor will get the better of him in all trash-talking exchanges.

For their eventual fight, however, things could be closer. Since McGregor beefed up after his injury, there's been chatter about welterweight (or even middleweight), but Mac is the narrow -120 favorite over Chandler (+100). Check out our full preview of that fight here.

McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather

McGregor’s meteoric rise earned him a major payday and a dance with Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr., arguably the greatest boxer of all time. Understandably, Notorious was an underdog against the multi-division champion, then 49-0, but not by as much as you might have expected as he ended up closing as just a +265 underdog.

Unfortunately for McGregor backers in that pro boxing event, Mayweather scored a 10th-round TKO for the win, but McGregor’s $100-million payday was a win as well.

It wasn’t a completely one-sided affair, though, as many, myself included, believe that McGregor won several rounds before Mayweather kicked it into another gear. Conor says that he learned Floyd’s tendencies and that he would beat him in a rematch – oddsmakers don’t agree as McGregor is an early +600 underdog.

McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov

Following the May-Mac event, the Irishman returned to the Octagon in a highly anticipated bout for the UFC lightweight belt against Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov. There was really bad blood between these athletes that spilled over when McGregor attacked Nurmagomedov’s bus with a dolly ahead of the Eagle’s title fight at UFC 223 in Brooklyn in April 2018. 

Once McGregor sorted out his legal issues from the bus incident, the fight was on at UFC 229 in October 2018. And for the second time in his MMA career, Conor was an underdog (+130). Nurmagomedov won that bout via fourth-round submission.
