Conor McGregor is a former two-division UFC champion and one of the megastars in MMA. While McGregor has a great resume, he is known for his trash-talking outside the octagon which often leads him to trouble. But when it comes to the all-time great Muhammad Ali, even the Irish trash-talker couldn't resist praising the legend. Back in 2021, he reposted a post from Ali's Twitter handle. Praising the photo and his physique, McGregor wrote, "What a shot of an icon! Ali snapped them out all day long! Literal Whips! Incredible! What a quote also! A true legend and a real hero of mine, Muhammad 'The Worlds Greatest' Ali." https://twitter.com/thenotoriousmma/status/1460021210276937730?s21\u0026amp;tCvukVkyzMgQ7d-difSxYgg It was heartwarming to see Conor McGregor hold Muhammad Ali in such high regard.
