Watch Conor McGregor meet the Cork footballers in Portugal

Conor McGregor further proved that he’s a true blue Dub at heart when he met the Cork footballers at the airport, writes Stephen Barry.

The Rebels had been away for a training camp in Portugal, while McGregor was preparing for his Nate Diaz rematch with some warm-weather training of his own.

However McGregor doesn’t fancy Cork’s chances if they get a rematch with the Dubs this summer…

Cork footballers Ken O’Halloran, Dan MacEoin, Kevin and Brian O’Driscoll, Ruairi Deane, Michael Shields and Fintan Goold are among those seen mixing with McGregor in the two clips.

They’ll certainly hope to have picked up some tips from the Notorious for facing off against their Championship opponents!
