Conor flew in to support his long time friend Gerry, who won his fight, and his coach John Kavanagh thanked the dad-of-two on Instagram for supporting the event.

“Big thanks to @thenotoriousmma supporting grass roots MMA in Ireland showing up at @wimp2warrior Dublin’s finale to support his friend @gerryvegas1,” he wrote.

Just this week he took part in a live talk with world famous life coach Tony Robbins at his beach-side home.

“What an honor to be invited speak alongside the great @tonyrobbins at his home,” he wrote on Instagram.
