    I was watching fights on youtube and some how I ended up watching Tony McGregor interviews lol (Conor's dad)

    It's interesting how in the beginning there was a bit of conflict in their relationship over the pursuit of fighting

    Tony didnt really want Conor to persue an MMA career. He would tell Conor there was no future in it from what I'm remembering. And I'm sure there were other conversations

    Putting yourself in Conor's shoes, for anyone else to hear that, I imagine that would have kind of been demoralizing to hear a parent say they didn't believe in you (or at least the implication of that)

    Conor is where he's at for a reason. Conor's drive, mental fortitude, and mental strength is absolutely unbreakable and unshakable. Even when every one else was telling Conor the same and how no one from Ireland had ever made it before him, Conor was like "just watch me." This is probably why Conor has a fetish for proving people wrong and LOVES destroying the Aldos/Khabibs/Gsps of the MMA world.

    So in an interview Tony talked about how when he first went to go see Conor fight live, he was terrified for his boy.

    Something along the lines of how he felt like he was watching his boy being sent to a slaughterhouse live and it made him sick

    After he saw Conor dominate his opponent, Tony goes on to say that that's when he realised that his boy had became a man. He says it was at that moment that he got fully on board with Conor's vision and started supporting him unconditionally. Tony and Conor's mother Margaret have been there every step of the way supporting their son on his incredible journey to all time iconic folkhero legend

    Its honestly emotional and touching to think about it.

    Tony talked about how his son proved him dead wrong. How as a father he's happy to admit that he was wrong. That his son was always right. He broke down into tears, "my boy proved me wrong and made me look foolish, and I couldn't be happier to say that"..

    That was very touching and emotional

    Very beautiful story.

    Conor's life story, all around, has been unbelievably inspirational. It especially hits home if you have ever had anyone in your life tell you that you couldn't do something you were passionate about and belived in. Conor is proof YOU CAN.

    It's beautiful how Conor represents hope to all the poor Irish out there. No matter who you are or where you are from, so many of every culture and ethnicity are inspired by Conor and look up to Conor as their real life hero

    You will hear stories of Hollywood douchebags who make it and then completely ignore their parents/disregard them

    Now today Tony talks about how Conor has never once changed and how Conor is the greatest son he could have ever hoped for.

    Some truly beautiful stuff. I ain't gonna lie. It all brings a tear to my eye lol

    There are so many beautiful and inspiring sides of Conor's story that the media doesn't put the spotlight on, and thats a shame.

    "There's only one Conor McGregor" ever.

    Imagine wanting to be Conor so bad that you write a novel about him on Sherdog

    Didn't read all of your post, but read some of it. I doubt his dad didn't believe in his son, he just didn't believe in the sport. Lets be real, not many MMA fighters make it big. Its hit or miss.

    Great post, boxingislife. Next time though skip the homoerotic tension and just tell us you jack off to Conor and his dad.

    Lmao PROlogic is in a 2 year old thread of his (when he was TimingBeatsSpeed) no doubt to copy and paste the same regurgitated bullshit he makes up.

    Gentle reminder, he has never trained, knows zero about combat sports, said Conor would ko Jon Jones at open weight, ko Floyd Rd 1, Conor best striker ever in any combat sport, etc...

    He must be a shill now that Conor may actually fight (climbed the rankings for no apparent reason). He's all over the forums posting his propaganda.

    You are an idiot.
    Every parent should deter their child from MMA as a life choice. It is common sense.
    Go pursue a career in MMA because you are passionate about it. Conor is a proof you CAN! We ll see where it leads you.
