Conor McGregor has a lot going through his head these days as, in less than two weeks, the UFC star will take on all-time great boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (on Showtime pay-per-view). His three-month-old son Conor Jr. is also at the forefront of his mind.
“We were comparing pictures, side by side, from when I was that age and we’re like identical,” McGregor said Friday after a Las Vegas workout at the UFC Performance Institute. “I’m like, ‘Yes,’ because he’s going to look exactly like me. He has my name; it’s a legacy. I’m just in awe of my little man.”
