Don’t worry Real Madrid, it’s just a photo op.
An extremely tan Cristiano Ronaldo met up with UFC superstar Conor McGregor in Las Vegas this weekend, even squaring up with the featherweight champ for a picture in the Octagon.
Ronaldo, who is friends with McGregor’s trainer John Kavanagh, is currently vacationing in the United States, and obviously one of the stops had to be Las Vegas. McGregor is preparing for his big welterweight rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 next month.
It’s foolish to think any footballer would survive a round in the cage with McGregor, but if there was ever one to pose ‘The Notorious’ a problem, wouldn’t it be Ronaldo? Just look at these animals:
Standing at 6-foot-1, Ronaldo has a significant size and reach (not to mention tan) advantage over the 5-foot-9 McGregor, and despite suffering a knee injury in the Euro final three weeks ago, still looks as shredded as ever. He also never skips leg day. On the other hand, Ronaldo isn’t, uh, you know, in the UFC.
