Given that Conor McGregor fights for a living while also talking trash as well as anyone, it is hard to imagine the Dubliner in his childhood years.
Thankfully, his sister Erin has posted a photo of the McGregor clan on Instagram, where a young Conor is unrecognisable from the 28-year-old man who has climbed to the summit of MMA.
The Notorious claimed arguably the biggest win of his career in Las Vegas last Saturday night when he edged Nate Diaz in a five round classic and Erin McGregor shared a touching tribute to her brother on social media yesterday in response to his latest heroics.
The message was nice, but the photo is really something else.
