Conor McGregor announces commitment to longtime partner Dee Devlin in an Instagram post


Former UFC champ Conor McGregor announced his engagement to longtime partner Dee Devlin two months after retiring from the sport.

McGregor, who turned 32 last month, posted a picture of them on Instagram with the caption, "What a birthday my future wife!"

In the picture, the couple looked overjoyed when Devlin showed off her large engagement ring.

In June, McGregor stunned fans by announcing his resignation from UFC in a post on Twitter and saying shortly after his announcement that the game "doesn't excite me".

The former featherweight and lightweight champion was a controversial figure during his career, but was hands down the biggest draw of mixed martial art.

The couple have been in a relationship since 2008 when McGregor began his UFC career. They have two children together – three year old Conor Jr. and one year old daughter Croia.

They also live with their children in a stunning £ 2 million mansion.

McGregor – whose net worth is said to be £ 90million – suggested that Devlin make a proposal when they were vacationing together in France.

After Devlin left her job to support McGregor, she became part of his team as she was in charge of his finances and travels with him everywhere.

The comments section below the picture shared by McGregor was full of congratulations, including from his trainer John Kavanagh and his training partner Dillon Danis.

On June 7, McGregor announced his retirement from the UFC for the third time in his career, having previously announced that he would be retiring in both 2016 and 2019. He made quick U-turns on both occasions.

After graduating from UFC 250, the 31-year-old wrote on Twitter, “Hey guys, I've decided to retire from the fight.

“Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it was! Here is a picture of me and my mom in Las Vegas after winning one of my world titles! Choose the home of your dreams Mags I love you! Whatever you want is yours. & # 39;

He later told ESPN, “I'm a little bored with the game. I'm just not excited about the game. I don't know if it's not a crowd. I do not know what it is. There's just no enthusiasm for me.

& # 39; All of that are waiting around. Nothing happens. I go through the opponent's options and there is nothing real right now. There is nothing that upsets me. & # 39;

McGregor joined the UFC in 2013 after establishing himself as the two-part Cage Warriors champion.

It took him just 13 seconds to beat longtime featherweight champion Jose Aldo in December 2015, the fastest win in UFC title history.

A year later, he became the first to hold titles in two divisions at the same time when he stopped Eddie Alvarez to win the easy crown – although he was released from the featherweight belt just days later.

McGregor then switched to boxing and although he lost to five-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather in August 2017, it was a fight that reportedly grossed him more than $ 100 million.

McGregor returned to the UFC the following year, losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in a fight that marred the build-up and immediate aftermath of a number of controversial hotspots.

McGregor joined the UFC in 2013 and quickly positioned himself as one of the best in the sport. Of his 26 fights in MMA, he won 22 and lost four.

McGregor also grappled with the law a couple of times while at UFC.

In 2018, he was sentenced to five days of community service after video footage showed him attacking a bus loaded with UFC fighters, including Nurmagomedov, months before their showdown.

In July 2018, he pleaded guilty to messing around in a Brooklyn court to avoid jail time after throwing a metal cart onto a rival's team bus.

He was arrested in Miami in March 2019 after a video showed him stealing and stomping a fan's phone while trying to get a video with him.

Last year McGregor was also fined € 1,000 after pleading guilty to assaulting an elderly man in a Dublin pub.

The ex-UFC champion was caught on video surveillance on April 6th at the Marble Arch Pub in the Irish capital, pouring his bar-seated whiskey Proper Twelve – a brand he founded and owns.

But after a man declined his offer twice, McGregor threw him a vicious nudge in the face that hit his cheek and stunned the audience.

Despite being beaten by one of MMA's most famous fighters, the man stayed in his chair.

In fact, he took the blow better than many of McGregor's opponents and barely reacted.

McGregor was immediately dragged away by the security team he was drinking with.
