UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has been enjoying a bit of down time since his UFC 200 rematch with Nate Diaz was scrapped. Despite that, McGregor has managed to keep his name in the headlines as talks of a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather have increased significantly.
In a recent Instagram post, McGregor returned to Straight Blast GYM in Ireland, and posted a statement to go along with it.
Back home at Straight Blast Gym Ireland. "Tough is not how you act. Tough is how you train" This SBG quote alone always made me seek out the toughest spars and the toughest rolls against the best and most experienced fighters that where around me at that time. It is a quote and a mentality that made me into a 4 time World Champion. Hard work pays. I am living proof. It is damn good to be home in beautiful Dublin, Ireland 🍀 #ReadyToWork
