Portugal and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo took time out during his post Euro 2016 holiday to drop by a gym in Las Vegas, to meet UFC fighter Conor McGregor on Sunday.
McGregor is a month away from a return to the Octagon at UFC 202, where he will get a chance to avenge his crushing defeat at the hands of Nate Diaz.

A visibly tanned Ronaldo, who is friends with McGregor’s trainer John Kavanagh, visited McGregor’s camp and even stepped into the Octagon to pose for a picture with the UFC star before posting it on his Instagram.
The Irish fighter also shared a social media post with the line: “My brother Ronaldo dropped by the gym today! He is an animal. Thank you @cristiano, much respect! I will see you for that Forbes number 1 spot next year.”
Fresh from his Euro 2016 exploits, Ronaldo has been living it up in Vegas, and was also spotted enjoying a night out at Jennifer Lopez’s concert at Planet Hollywood. Front row seats for the football star of course.
