Conor McGregor has shared an emotional post – 4 years after becoming a double weight world champion.
The father-of-two shared throwback to his win against Eddie Alvarez – which secured his historic title.
In a moving post on social media, Conor reflected on the huge moment.
3 years ago today I became a multiple time, multiple-weight World champion at Madison Square Garden, New York City.
“What a moment in my life,” he wrote.
“To capture the double once. Wow! To do it twice. Lord have mercy ????
“I often look at this second picture and imagine how trippy that view must be for my father. Looking up at his son after doing exactly shot for shot what I told him I would do.
“I even done it no hands the second time.
I will credit hard work for this moment but it’s not just that. Hard work alone is not enough.
” We can all work hard for a minute. It’s the consistency to do it over and over and over again that will lead you to these iconic moments.
” Year after year of focused work! I worked hard my last two fights. No doubt. But without consistency, I fell SHORT. All amazing and valuable lessons going forward on this journey that is Martial Life!
” Onwards we go…Happy Tuesday EVERYONE,” he added.
In more posts today Conor asked his fans how they all celebrated “champ champ day” and promoted a new August McGregor t-shirt which bares the same title.
