Conor McGregor isn’t just a champion fighter. It appears he’s a pretty good teacher, as well.
On Tuesday, the two-division UFC champion posted a video of him giving boxing advice that he originally sent as a reply to one of his proteges. He used the opportunity not only to throw jabs but also to throw some shade at potential opponent Floyd Mayweather — that is, if negotiations for the proposed superfight pan out.
McGregor then steered the conversation back to his role as a mentor, writing that he wants to teach his son to be a free fighting champion, just like his dad. McGregor’s girlfriend, Dee Devlin, is due to have the couple’s baby boy next month.
UFC president Dana White is targeting September for a potential Mayweather-McGregor fight, which could net the Irish fighter an estimated $75 million.
