Watch touching moment Conor McGregor signs autograph for young fan before UFC star tells him to ‘stay in school’

CONOR McGREGOR was captured in a touching moment signing an autograph for a fan – before telling him to ‘stay in school’.

The former UFC champion is currently holidaying, although unclear where, enjoying a sunny getaway.

But McGregor always has time for his adoring fans and was on hand to sign a picture poolside.

The lucky supporter also got a selfie with the Irish superstar before receiving some words of wisdom.

McGregor, 32, said: "Good lad. Stay in school, kid."

He captioned the post: "Letrell Spencer #WhiteChicks #Hollywood."

McGregor referenced a scene from the 2004 comedy White Chicks, where Kevin Copeland, played by Shawn Wayans, pretends to be Terry Crews' character Latrell Spencer, an ex-basketball player.

In the film, Copeland pays two kids to ask for his autograph, to impress Denis Porter, played by Rochelle Aytes.

As well as soaking up the sun, McGregor is also staying in shape, as he prepares to enter training camp for his rematch with Dustin Poirier.

Poirier, who lost the original fight in 2014, stunned the southpaw in January, winning by knockout in the second round.

It has set them up for a trilogy in the summer, now expected to take place in July.

McGregor was in talks to face boxing legend Manny Pacquiao, 42, while preparing for his UFC comeback at the start of the year.

And a return to the ring, where he lost his debut to Floyd Mayweather in 2017, caused the former two-division king to focus too much on boxing.

McGregor's head coach John Kavanagh told BT Sport: “I describe it as a game of spinning plates.

“You’re spinning the boxing plate and you realise the wrestling plate is about to stop, so you have to go spin that one, and then you have to go spin the jiu-jitsu one, you have to spin the kickboxing one.

“We got a bit obsessed with the boxing one. There was talk of a big boxing fight after that.

“Our bad, our mistake, our fault – no one to blame.

“We just have to make sure we have to keep spinning that kickboxing plate and all the other aspects of MMA and get ready for the rematch.”
