Meet Dee Devlin. The woman who stuck by UFC superstar Conor McGregor when he had ‘absolutely nothing’.
The pair have been together for 8 years and the 27-year-old, who was defeated by Nate Diaz on Saturday night, says he owes his success to her.
Devlin, a 28-year-old from Dublin, now works as an official member of his team and travels the world with him, managing his finances.
He told the Irish Mirror: “My girlfriend has been there since the start. She has helped me throughout this career.
“If it wasn’t for her, I probably wouldn’t be where I am today.
“My girlfriend worked very hard throughout the years and stuck by me when I had essentially absolutely nothing. I only had a dream that I was telling her.”
