UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is currently sidelined through May due to the upcoming birth of his firstborn son. Following McGregor’s historic UFC 205 win over Eddie Alvarez to claim the lightweight championship, McGregor revealed that his big announcement was his girlfriend, Dee Devlin’s pregnancy. The ‘Notorious’ admitted that he was nervous about fatherhood, and bringing a child into a life of superstardom. McGregor also revealed that with the new UFC owners now steering the ship, he would like to receive equity in the promotion if the new WME-IMG owners would like him to continue fighting.

Despite his layoff, McGregor’s name has continued to make headlines for his rumored involvement in a potential Floyd Mayweather superfight. While no deal has been made official yet, reports have continued to surface that indicate negotiations are ongoing, and a deal, while still far off, could potentially be reached.

Interestingly enough, Conor McGregor posted a photo to social media with former UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta, along with a rather intriguing caption:

Social media users weren’t the only ones to take note of the situation, as Ariel Helwani took to Twitter to point out that there could very well be another element to the photo and caption that fight fans are unaware of yet.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
