Cork schoolchildren will have a chance to see Conor McGregor’s UFC belt tomorrow

Schoolchildren in Cork will get to handle Conor McGregor’s most prized possession tomorrow, writes Ronan Bagnall.

McGregor’s renowned coach John Kavanagh is bringing the superstar’s UFC championship belt to schoolchildren at Blarney Street CBS tomorrow morning.

Kavanagh will be doing a questions and answers session with the kids about McGregor’s training regime and his rise to the top of the UFC world.

Following McGregor’s recent success, Kavanagh has cemented himself as one of the best coaches in the UFC organisation.

McGregor recently became the UFC’s first dual-weight champion before he was stripped of his featherweight title shortly afterwards.

Kavanagh spoke this week also about the potential of a fight between McGregor and boxing great, Floyd Mayweather.

He said: “If the odds were good enough, I’d put a money on it happening next year.”
