UFC lightweight champion and all-around MMA superstar Conor McGregor conquered another market earlier this week when he become an official member of the Beats by Dre team. McGregor, who has also had ties to automobile king Rolls Royce and Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare video game, released the following statement yesterday (Fri., May 26, 2017) via Instagram regarding his new partnership:

As MMA’s highest grossing fighter, McGregor is continuously pushing for more fame and lucrative opportunities. This new deal falls into both categories. Beats by Dre is one of the most popular and innovative music audio brands in the world, so McGregor will have plenty of chances to spread his wings and gain even more international notoriety in the future. He will join rock superstar Bono and rapper Drake as the main ambassadors of Beats by Dre.

The company may have snatched McGregor up at the most opportune time considering the 28-year-old UFC champ is on the cusp of challenging boxer Floyd Mayweather in a massive money fight.
