Is McGregor already dead?

The answer is NO! The MMA superstar is more than just alive but healthy and blooming. In his latest post yesterday Aug. 4, the star chronicles his physical workout in a series of photos. Posted a few hours ago.

Furthermore, the content of his Wikipedia page does not cover the news of his death or the date of his death. Information appears that he was born in Crumlin, Dublin, and died on 3 August 2022. However, this information is nowhere on the site.

McGregor is not dead, but Google says he is. He is still very much alive. If he died on August 3rd, god forbid, it would already be him on all major news media channels. Publications would pick up the story and spotlight his death. Will make the biggest news!

How and why did the rumors begin?

Many fans expressed their confusion on Twitter after seeing Google search screenshots go viral. A fan searched for “Death of Conor McGregor” on a search engine, revealing that the UFC star passed away on August 3rd.

According to SEO results as of August 4, some people Googled “Conor McGregor is dead.” In addition, it is seen that the date Google deduced as the anniversary of his death, is August 3, 2022. According to data provided by Google, he was found dead on August 3, 2022. Google’s AI gets confused when one person performs a search and many others perform the same search at the same time. That’s why it displays results based on commonly searched terms on websites and makes you think you’re right even when they’re completely wrong.

All his fans online were going crazy after reportedly seeing Conor McGregor’s death and the date posted in large block letters on the internet.

So rumors that the greatest mixed martial artist of all time died on August 3rd are probably not true. Each of his social media accounts is still active to this day. Just the day before yesterday, he posted on Instagram, as quoted “Utility vehicle. May the graft be blessed by God”.
