Conor McGregor is currently in training for a massive challenge in July. This is also true for the Cork footballers. The pair are both looking to bounce back, McGregor from his defeat at UFC 196, and the Rebels from a tame exit in the 2015 championship.
Therefore, both deemed it appropriate to head off for training camps in Portugal this week, and coincided at the airport on the way home.
The UFC featherweight champion posted this video to his Instagram account, and he nailed his colours to the mast.

McGregor will be shouting for the Dubs against Kerry next Sunday in the league final, and we speculate that he struck a bond with the Cork squad on their mutual dislike of the Kingdom!
