Conor McGregor, one of the most talented mixed martial artists in the history of the UFC, has recently shared that he is engaged to partner Dee Devlin.

McGregor took to his official Instagram account to share a romantic picture of himself holding Devlin while she displayed the huge ring on her finger.



Along with the photo of the couple smiling widely at the camera was a short but meaningful message from McGregor wishing his future wife a happy birthday.

It has been reported that the couple has been together since 2008, when McGregor was still a 19-year-old dreaming of becoming an MMA champion.

As per the Irish athlete, the two met at a nightclub and they were immediately attracted to each other. According to Devlin, McGregor always keeps her entertained and makes her laugh.

Since then, Devlin has been by McGregor's side at all times and is his number one fan, never missing a chance to support him backstage or while he is inside the octagon.



In 2017, just a few months before McGregor's fight with Floyd Mayweather, the couple welcomed their first child, Conor Jack McGregor Jr.

The lovebirds, who are yet to reveal the date of their wedding, are also parents to a little girl named Croia Mairead McGregor, born in January 2019.


Back in June, McGregor shocked his fans by announcing that he was going to retire from fighting, claiming that "the game" didn't excite him anymore.

Tyson, who was once described as "the baddest [sic] man on the planet," also talked about his upcoming fight with Roy Jones Jr.



The Irishman's name was also recently connected to Mike Tyson, who made an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" to promote some of his projects.

During the segment, the former boxer was asked if he could beat McGregor, to which he said yes, but that they would have to fight according to boxing rules and not MMA's.

Tyson, who was once described as "the baddest [sic] man on the planet," also talked about his upcoming fight with Roy Jones Jr on September 12, which will take place at the Dignity Health Sports Arena.

The 54-year-old hasn't been inside a ring since 2005, but he promised his fans that the eight-round exhibition match with Jones will be "magnificent."
