Meet Dee Devlin, the Woman Behind Conor McGregor’s(UFC King) Success who Shunned All Bashes and His Inspiration to Become a UFC Champion

35-year-old Conor McGregor is a UFC King from Ireland. In 2015, he won against Brazilian fighter José Aldo by knockout, who had been undefeated for 10 years, in 13 seconds. He won the UFC featherweight championship. In 2016, Conor won the UFC lightweight championship, making him the first fighter in UFC history to hold two championship titles. In 2017, the boxing championship fight of the century between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor sparked heated discussion on the internet.

Since then, Conor’s success and reputation have risen to a higher level. His life reached an all-time high. Whether it was a private or public event, Conor would take his beautiful fiancée, Dee Devlin, with him. The couple has a strong relationship amidst bashes and controversies. She stood by his side since the day they met.

For 8 years, Conor has been unemployed. He relied on low-income assistance and odd jobs as a plumber and electrician. When he was 16, he dreamed of becoming a fighter. He met Dee Devlin in 2008 when he was only 19 years old. He wanted to fulfill his dream as a fighter, so he quit his job in a car repair shop and began training by himself. However, life took an unexpected turn when his income dropped, making the couple face the hardships of life together.

Dee stood strong and put her faith in Conor. She said, “It’s okay, I’ll cover you!” She stayed by Conor’s side for 8 years, working jobs to help Conor financially. She paid for his venue fees, equipment fees, training fees, as well as the logistics work of the entire team. Dee Devlin was in full support of Conor in his time of need.

Dee’s full support and dedication to Conor may seem irrational to other people. Her mother was very much opposed to her daughter’s blind support of Conor and enduring the hardships of her boyfriend. Her sisters bashed Conor for relying on Dee. Although there were rumors all around them, Dee never stopped believing in Conor and trusted that he would succeed one day. Dee said, “He will definitely do it. He has always worked so hard. If there is really a limit, his limit is definitely at the top!”

When Conor loses a game, Dee patiently comforts him. When he wins, Dee continues to motivate him and is happy for her boyfriend. The couple lived in a small apartment in Dublin, Ireland, living on Dee’s salary and Conor’s low-income salary from odd jobs for several years. However, their difficult days finally ended when Conor won the championship and was signed up for UFC.

With Conor’s talent for fighting and hard work, he has defeated his opponents one after the other and won the titles of featherweight and lightweight divisions. Conor McGregor, who is notorious and domineering in the ring, is very affectionate to his fiancée in their private lives.

Conor would always bring Dee with him whenever he attended events and usually stayed with her after a game. Their photos on social media show them being together all the time, which sparked envy among the UFC fighter’s fans.

As of November 2023, Conor McGregor is worth US$200 million. Now that he has fulfilled his dream of becoming rich, he lives a luxurious life with his fiancée, Dee Devlin.

He can now afford them all! From luxury cars, mansions, yachts, villas, and designer bags to traveling around the world, Conor’s life now is far from the hardships he has undergone.

In this life that seems full of glory and success, who would have believed that Conor suffered financially for 8 years? Fortunately, Dee stayed by his side through the years and never lost faith in Conor. In return, his love and affection for her never wavered. Their relationship is never affected by vanity and fame.

“She has been with me for many years. She drove me to the gym and listened to me talk about all kinds of silly dreams. I can’t do anything without her. Because of her, I can do everything!” His love and devotion for Dee Devlin are beyond words!

When one is willing to sacrifice and provide, the other should know how to be grateful and content. When you are finally able to provide, reciprocate. Give and receive. This is the best way of life for everyone.
