UFC star Conor McGregor was kicking it back with boxing legend Mike Tyson over the weekend in Dublin. Tyson was attending in event in Helix, Dublin, Ireland on Saturday night when “The Notorious” decided to make the trip.
As it turns out, Tyson and McGregor may have become best buds after taking some time to enjoy Tyson’s home-grown strain of marijuana, “KO Kush.”
McGregor detailed the encounter in a lengthy post on social media.
“I love and respect Mike Tyson and I love the Helix,” McGregor wrote on Instagram. “I won my first World Title here, and also my second. It was good to meet you Mike. Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch ‘KO Kush’ is really nice. It was an honor to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavor.
“Just remember, if someone tries to rip you. Rip their nose off their face. You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it! Don’t let anyone take anything from you. You owe nobody nothing. It is you who is owed.”
McGregor also posted a photo of himself enjoying a blunt of Tyson’s “KO Kush” with the caption, “Some giggle off that Cherry Pick Kush.”
And here is Tyson toking it up for good measure.
The combat sports world is a magical place.
As for when we could see McGregor back in action, we will have to wait for his punishment to be handed down by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his role in the post-UFC 229 melee following his submission loss to current UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
