Former UFC champion Conor McGregor will be tying the knot with long-time partner, Dee Devlin, after getting engaged this past week.
McGregor posted the news to his Instagram account early Saturday, showing off a massive ring in the process. Check out the announcement below:
“What a birthday, my future wife!” wrote McGregor. Devlin’s 33rd birthday is this Sunday.
McGregor and Devlin have been together since 2008. They currently have two kids together, Conor Jack McGregor Jr, who turned three this past May, and Croia McGregor, who will be two this coming January. The two have shared quite a ride over the past seven years as “Notorious” became the most popular combat fighter in the world and one of the most influential figures in all of sports. Not to mention the millions upon millions of dollars McGregor has earned along the way.
McGregor, 32, announced his retirement from MMA this past June, making it the third time the Irishman has walked away from the sport. The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion is likely to return at some point in the future — possibly in 2021 — but he remains an inactive fighter for now.
The last time fight fans saw McGregor compete inside of the Octagon he ended up finishing Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds at UFC 246 this past January.
