UFC lightweight Conor McGregor posted a Father’s Day post that has got the attention of the MMA community. In classic ‘Notorious’ fashion, McGregor’s post wishing everyone a ‘Happy Father’s Day’, he added a caveat to his wish. Fans of McGregor have come to expect nothing less from the brash and outspoken Irishman.
Furthermore, McGregor’s post has also garnered attention due to the fact that he is seen sporting a black eye. Conor McGregor is less than three weeks away from his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier and it’s clear he’s getting ready. The scrap is McGregor’s opportunity to clinch bragging rights and is likely to secure a title shot against Charles Oliveira.
It’s well known that McGregor ramps up the intensity of his training in the weeks leading up to a massive fight. Many see the bout as a ‘Do or Die’ scrap for McGregor as he’s coming off a violent TKO defeat. Another stoppage loss could potentially cause irreparable damage to his star power going forward.
