UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor last fought at UFC 205 in November, defeating Eddie Alvarez to capture the 155-pound belt. During the event’s post-fight press conference at Madison Square Garden in New York City, McGregor told the media that he was taking a hiatus from fighting because he was expecting to be a father.
On May 5, McGregor’s longtime girlfriend, Dee Devlin, gave birth to Conor Jack McGregor, Jr. On Tuesday, the proud father posted a photo of himself holding his young son with the caption, “Me and my little champion.”
