Conor McGregor welcomed Cristiano Ronaldo to his training camp yesterday, as the Irishman prepares for UFC 202.

Ronaldo is holidaying in Las Vegas after winning the Champions League with Real Madrid earlier this season, before lifting the European Championships with Portugal this month.

And he dropped into McGregor’s gym to catch up, as ‘Notorious’ prepares for his rematch with Nate Diaz on August 20.

Never one to miss a chance to whip his top off for a photo opportunity, Ronaldo posed with McGregor and posted the snaps on his Instagram account, and Conor did the same as he faced off against CR7 in a staredown.

Imagine the ticket sales if that scrap happened!

The pair also attended a Jennifer Lopez concert and had pictures taken with the singer, who (believe it or not) is old enough to be McGregor’s mother.

Happy birthday Miss Jennifer Lopez! What a woman! What a night! @jlo

Ronaldo had the height, reach and tan advantage on the UFC Featherweight champion though, after taking some much needed time off after his incredible season.

He’s also recovering from the knee injury picked up in the Euro 2016 final, which will see him miss the start of the new La Liga season.

McGregor looks in top shape ahead of his all-important rematch with Diaz, who made the Irishman tap out back in March.

Maybe McGregor can have Ronaldo as an Octagon Girl when him and Diaz get it on again next month.
