WATCH: When Cristiano Ronaldo Met Conor McGregor In Las Vegas
Gods recognise gods - The famous words hollered by Conor McGregor. And last summer, footballing god Cristiano Ronaldo met Conor McGregor.
Both men are superstars in their respective sports, and have become transcendent athletes with Ronaldo and McGregor dominating the news of late.
The Real Madrid attacker made a huge revelation last week by expressing his desire to leave the Spanish capital. He finds himself amidst a legal case regarding an alleged defrauding of Spanish authorities of €14.7 million for three years between 2011 and 2014.
A lack of club support has prompted Ronaldo to ply his trade elsewhere as he seeks for a transfer. Meanwhile, McGregor, just like Ronaldo, was involved in a equally-huge revelation following the confirmation of his fight against Floyd Mayweather.
So, what better way to recall the moment the four time Ballon d'Or winner met the UFC champion. From J-Lo, Forbes to discussing training.

The Portugal skipper made the visit during his off-season as he dropped by McGregor's training base in Las Vegas, Nevada.
McGregor was in preparation for his rematch with Nate Diaz who he lost to at UFC 196. But the Irishman avenged his only loss inside the Octagon by eking out a decision victory in a thrilling fire-fight.
After gaining revenge, McGregor subsequently made UFC history by becoming the first fighter in the promotion to hold two UFC belts, simultaneously.

The Crumlin-fighter put on a virtuoso performance as he dethroned Eddie Alvarez in brutal fashion eventually picking up a second round stoppage at the iconic Madison Square Garden.
While Ronaldo starred for Real Madrid last season as they wrote themselves in the history books as they successfully defended the Champions League. The first side in the modern era to do so.

As well as another European trophy, Ronaldo bagged an impressive 25 goals in 29 league appearances as Real Madrid reclaimed the La Liga.
And all eyes are now firmly locked on August 26th as McGregor makes his professional boxing bow. And for Ronaldo, the first major date for the new campaign is a juicy one.
Real Madrid play Manchester United on August 8th for the UEFA Super Cup. Will Ronaldo be on either side?
