UFC News: Conor McGregor pays tribute to boxing legend Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali’s official Twitter account is run by a dedicated team whose focus is to pay tribute to the life and legacy of the legendary pugilist. A recent tweet posted by the account featured a photograph of Ali throwing a punch. The tweet read as follows:

“Boxing was just a means to introduce me to the world.” – #MuhammadAli #Fight #Boxing #Champion #GOAT #Icon

UFC megastar Conor McGregor responded to this with a tweet of his own. McGregor’s tweet read as follows:

“What a shot of an icon! Look at the disconnect of the shoulder here on this punch. Ali absolutely 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”

Muhammad Ali is widely regarded as one of the most skillful and innovative boxers of all time. He’s beloved worldwide as a bona fide combat sports icon and pop culture personality. Ali passed away on June 3rd, 2016 at the age of 74.

Ali is also considered to be a prominent socio-political figure in history, owing to his immense contributions to society as a social activist and philanthropist. Akin to many fight fans, Conor McGregor, too, happens to be a longtime fan of ‘The Greatest.’ McGregor has often cited Ali as one of his biggest inspirations.

Conor McGregor could face a familiar foe in his highly anticipated return to the octagon in 2022

Conor McGregor’s most recent fight was a loss to Dustin Poirier in their lightweight bout at UFC 264 in July this year. He lost the trilogy to Poirier 1-2 and is on a two-fight losing streak. The Irishman suffered a horrific leg injury at UFC 264, which has kept him out of action since.

Regardless, Conor McGregor has been focused on recovering and returning to the octagon after his ongoing injury hiatus. ‘The Notorious’ has suggested that he’s open to competing at welterweight when he returns.

Conor McGregor has lately been hinting at facing Max Holloway – an opponent the Irishman defeated back in 2013 – in a rematch. Moments before Holloway’s recent fight against Yair Rodriguez, McGregor posted a video of himself seemingly sizing up the Hawaiian fighter.

Holloway has also noted that he’s on the shortlist of opponents who are likely to fight ‘The Notorious’ when he returns. Nevertheless, Conor McGregor’s next opponent and exact comeback date are yet to be confirmed.
