Conor McGregor To Be Featured In ESPN The Magazine’s Annual “Body Issue”


Although he won’t be fighting at UFC’s landmark UFC 200 pay-per-view event in July, reigning UFC Featherweight Champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor will still get his shine in the upcoming ESPN “The Body” 2016 issue.

ESPN announced on Monday that McGregor would be appearing in their annual “Body Issue,” a yearly collection of famous athletes either nude or semi-nude.

Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey appeared in the issue last year, gracing the cover of the special edition magazine. UFC stars Miesha Tate, Jon Jones and Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino are among the other MMA fighters who have appeared in the magazine in the past.

According to reports, this year’s ESPN “Body Issue” will be released on June 20th, and the magazine will hit newsstands on July 8th.

The official ESPN Twitter account sent out the following tweet on Monday to announce the news:
