In another post posted on MacLife, Conor McGregor praised his longtime partner Dee Devlin for her continued support. McGregor captioned, “We lived in Ireland, 30 km from Dublin, in a rented apartment on the €188 unemployment benefit. I had no job because I spent all my time in the gym. I believed that I would be the champion, and she always did, too. She believed in me. Despite the lack of money, Dee Devlin tried to get me to eat right and always keep my daily regimen. She dedicated herself to it. Coming home after an exhausting training session, she always said, ‘Conor, it’s okay, you can do it!’”
