“I’m doing all this for her”

Devlin and McGregor have been together since 2008 when McGregor was still a plumber in Ireland. McGregor has since become arguably the most famous and celebrated UFC star, headlining several pay-per-views and winning several titles.

The couple already have two children together. Their son Conor Jack McGregor Jr, was born in 2017, while daughter Croia was born in 2019.

McGregor credited Devlin for his success all the way back in 2013.

“Everyday since I started in this game, she’s supported me,” He had said back then. “She’d drive me to the gym, and she’d listen to all my dreams. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for her.

“I’m doing all this for her.”

He reiterated her importance in his life once again in 2016 when he revealed that giving her everything she wants fills him with pride and keeps him going.

“My girlfriend worked very hard throughout the years and stuck by me when I had essentially absolutely nothing,” McGregor said. “I only had a dream that I was telling her.

“For me to be able to take her out of work, give her everything she’s ever wanted and to travel the world with her fills me with pride. It keeps me going.”

This very passion soon branched out to boxing and mixed martial arts. Over the years he fell in love with the theatrics that preceded the bell and the poetic carnage that followed after. Each bruise a story to tell, each wound a song of struggle, his greatest desire is to be there to witness it all. His favorite wrestler is Shawn Michaels and he believes that GSP is the greatest to ever step foot inside the octagon. Apart from wrestling, he is also fond of poetry and music.
