Conor McGregor is a controversial figure in MMA today

Conor McGregor is a highly polarizing figure in the world of combat sports. The Irishman is always in the limelight for reasons good or bad.

McGregor has gained a lot of followers due to his highly impressive performances in the UFC octagon. However the former two-division champ’s antics outside of it, including his run-ins with the law and his controversial remarks towards other fighters on social media, have also brought him negative publicity.

Boxing royalty Teddy Atlas recently stated that despite McGregor’s controversial persona, people would still line up to see him fight. Atlas also compared the Irishman to ‘Hannibal Lecter’, a famous villain from the film ‘The Silence of the Lambs’. During an appearance on Submission Radio, Atlas said:

“Can he [Conor McGregor] run his engine on that part, on the part of being the villain? I think in some ways after he lost to [Dustin] Poirier, he kinda gave you an answer that he thinks he can and maybe he thinks he needs to by behaving the way he did, which appalled a lot of people, it bothered a lot of people, you know… but he’ll continue to be the guy [that people want to see]. You want to see whether he’s gonna do something outrageous, you want to see Hannibal Lecter!”
