Watching the Late Late show last night and on comes this young man @ianoconnell321! I was blown away by him and his attitude to life and in facing adversity! Truly blown away! Then tonight, by complete chance, I bumped into him at an event and end up getting to watch the main event fight ringside with him! What a night! Thank you Ian it was great to meet you my brother, you are some man! Your quote literally blew me away! “If you can’t stand up, STAND OUT!” What a legend! I think I speak for every Irish man and woman that watched you on the Late Late show last night by saying you are a true inspiration to us! Thank you brother ❤️

McGregor says that he saw the boy, Ian O’Connell, on The Late Late Show a nighttime talk show in Ireland and was inspired by the boy’s message.

“Your quote literally blew me away,” McGregor wrote on the post. “’If you can’t stand up, standout!’

What a legend. I think I speak for every Irish man and woman that watched you on The Late Late Show last night by saying you are a true inspiration to us!”

Ironically, Mcgregor ran into the boy the following day at a boxing match and sat with him for the main event.

O’Connell suffers from a C/4 spinal cord injury due to a fall off a bike which left him paralyzed from the neck down.

My dream has finally come true❤❤

McGregor hasn’t competed in the Octagon since he defeated Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC’s first ever two-division champion, holding belts in both the featherweight and the lightweight division. That was nearly two years ago.

Shortly after winning the lightweight belt McGregor left the cage in favor of a boxing super fight with Floyd Mayweather. The fight finally happened in August 2017, and McGregor was defeated via a 10th-round TKO.

McGregor, now without a UFC title, was rumored to make his return this year but after he was involved in a recent bus attack in New York it’s unlikely the return will be anytime soon. McGregor, along with some of his teammates charged a bus holding Khabib Nurmagomedov and other UFC fighters and personnel in retaliation for an insult to McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov. McGregor was caught on camera throwing a dolly through a bus window, injuring at least three people and causing the cancellation of three fights that were scheduled for the following day.
