Conor McGregor is set to have a major showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov this weekend at UFC 229. The fight will be for the UFC Lightweight championship and it will also mark the return of McGregor into the UFC octagon after a long hiatus.
Despite his busy schedule ahead of the fight, McGregor took some time out to share a warm message on his Instagram page. He posted a tribute to Las Vegas and called the city as his second home. You can see the message from McGregor below.
“Las Vegas has always been a second home for me and my family. I love this city from the bottom of my heart. Some of my most lasting memories have occurred in this great city.
One year ago today the beautiful city of Las Vegas was subject to a terrible act of mindless violence. 58 people were lost that day and hundreds more had their lives forever changed. Las Vegas’ strength and resilience may have been shook but it was not nor will it ever be broken.
The city rallied around those affected and stands today one year later stronger and prouder than ever before.
We must remember, we must spread love, and we must never forget those we lost on that fateful day. I look forward to honouring you all this Saturday night. #VegasStronger”
