A lovely side to The Notorious


A lovely side to The Notorious.

Conor McGregor isn’t a person that’s shy when a camera is placed front of him but his latest interview is arguably the most powerful one yet.

The Dubliner took some time out of his training regime to talk about the tragic death of a fan of his, Tyrone’s Brendan McGlone, in a very moving and touching interview.

McGregor was chatting with American network TSN and relayed how 14 year old Brendan had contacted him through the ‘Make a Wish Foundation’.

Take a look as McGregor discusses how he used to talk with Brendan on the phone and how this young fan influenced him.

Sadly, Brendan died earlier this week but McGregor still wanted to pay tribute to the young man.
