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.
