The Irishman entered UFC in typical fashion back in 2013, earning the Knockout of the Night honour by downing Marcus Brimage in one round.

That came on the preliminary card of a UFC on Fuel TV event in Stockholm, after which eight more fights took place before the headline event of Gegard Mousasi versus Ilir Latifi.

Seven years after the April 6 match-up, McGregor’s exploits will be broadcast live on BT Sport on Monday night at 9pm.

Just minutes later, McGregor’s three-round points win over Max Holloway will be shown.

All of the 31-year-old’s next three fights won Performance of the Night as he TKO’d Diego Brandao, Dustin Poirier and Dennis Siver.

And his first UFC title, the interim Featherweight Championship, is up at 9.52 with victory over Chad Mendes.

The showcase then continues through McGregor‘s defeats to Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov, the legendary battle with the Russian scheduled for 11.36pm on Monday night.

Finally up is the comeback victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246, starting at 11.57pm and ending less than a minute later.

Fans are hoping McGregor’s next fight is a rematch with Khabib but former title challenger turned pundit Dan Hardy feels he needs another setup contest beforehand.

Hardy told SunSport: “I don’t necessarily think the Khabib rematch is the right route to go if he wants to win the belt back and be considered the legitimate champion.

“I think there’s at least one more fight for him that needs to happen. Who that’s against, I’m not sure. You’ve got the likes of Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier floating around that would be good tests for him.

“Another win against a top ranked opponent before he gets the shot would make his title campaign more legitimate.”
