Rick Steves

“I am delighted to have become the official ambassador of one of the world’s leading investment companies for the coming years. I believe sport and investing require the same features: commitment, mental tenacity and the ability to set personal goals. That’s why I was happy to start a partnership with XTB – a recognized global investment company that supports its clients to facilitate their investment objectives”, said Conor McGregor. 

XTB has announced the signing of famous mixed martial artist Conor McGregor as brand ambassador for the upcoming two years.

The partnership aims to strengthen the Polish broker’s position within the global retail trading industry as Conor McGregor, one of the most
successful athletes in the history of mixed martial arts, is recognized as a force of nature and for his work ethic.

He was the first UFC champion in two weight categories and his image goes beyond the ring. He became an entrepreneur, restaurateur, and global business and athletic icon. Born in Dublin, Ireland, he started off as a plumber’s apprentice and amateur fighter before bursting onto the UFC scene in 2013.

After winning the UFC Featherweight Championship in 2015, he made history by becoming the first fighter in UFC history to be champion in two weight divisions simultaneously, winning the UFC Lightweight Championship in 2016. He headlined the top six most-bought pay-per-view UFC events and is the most-followed UFC fighter on social media with more than 70 million followers across all platforms.

XTB found his story to resonate well with its brand and strategy.
