UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor took time out of his training regime to treat family and friends to a private event at the Funderland amusement park in Dublin, Ireland.
McGregor, who created 'Mac Land' for his son's christening in October 2017, rented out the park on Monday for his nearest and dearest, including his son, girlfriend and training partner, Ciaran Maher.
McGregor posted pictures on social media, and took time to greet Maher, whose son he met during a low-key visit to Our Lady's Children's hospital in Dublin, where he was being treated in the cardiology department.
Great to meet this little man tonight. My training partner Ciaran Maher, his son and his wife. Ciaran's son was a patient in the cardiac department in Our Ladies hospital before. I went in one day on the low a while back and visited all the patients and helped out in my way for the department, and nobody knew about it, I made sure of it, but Ciaran reached out to me out of nowhere thanking me for it and I was like how do you know about that and was blown away as he told me of his son and his journey and that his life was saved by the people in the cardiac department in Our ladies. I done this on the low and it reached right back close to me out of nowhere. Crazy. It's crazy how you just never know. I invited the little champion, my brother Ciaran and his wife today and it was great to meet the little man, thank you for coming.
McGregor has not fought in UFC since defeating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 but President Dana White told ESPN that anyone who suggested he should be stripped of his belt was "a Conor hater."
