Irishman Conor McGregor went from collecting a little less than $250 per week to being paid thousands for fighting in the UFC, and now he’s shipping up to Boston.

UFC president Dana White – who prior to a recent trip to Ireland knew little of McGregor – said the Irishman went a long way towards securing a spot on the UFC’s next trip to Boston, which kicks off the launch of Fox Sports 1 on Aug. 17.

McGregor’s knockout of Marcus Brimage at 1:07 of their fight in Sweden on Saturday certainly won his UFC boss over.

“The answer is yes,” answered White, prior to the question even being posed. “You’re gonna ask if we’re gonna put McGregor on (the Boston) card...

For those curious, Conor is a BJJ Purple Belt under John Kavanagh who is the BJJ trainer of Gunnar Nelson among others.

Well damn! I'm not going all out and saying this dude is going to win the belt, but I am absolutely sold on him being a contender. He looked like a big 145, yet moved like a banshee... Insanely accurate and powerful hands, diverse striking... It'll be interesting to see where he goes from here.

I'd like to see him fight Holloway if he beats Bermudez
