Conor McGregor went back to his roots on Friday night, returning to the Crumlin Boxing Club, where he started his combat sports journey as a young kid. McGregor competed in an exhibition boxing match in Dublin, as part of the gym’s annual Good Friday Club Show.

According to multiple reports, McGregor competed against an amateur boxer Michael McGrane, and the exhibition fight was declared a draw. Watch footage from the match below, where the UFC star put on a show for the local audience.

A day prior, McGregor was also training at the same boxing gym, hitting the pads and sparring a few rounds with another amateur fighter from the club.

Special visitor to the club tonight, our former student and clubmate....The Notorious Conor McGregor. Nice movearound...
