And family man McGregor took to social media to pay a heartfelt tribute to his late uncle on Instagram in the early hours of Monday morning.

Alongside a picture of Dan holding a UFC world title, McGregor wrote: “Rest In Peace my uncle Dan!

“Armies all over the shop we have, the sky the lot. Word to me nanny! Yup the Moore’s!”

Scores of McGregor’s fans were quick to offer their condolences, with one saying: “Sorry for the loss, Conor.”

Another said: “My condolences, man.”


And another said: “May he rest in peace.”

One added: “Sad to hear this. God bless his family and take care of them.”

The late Dan Moore was one of McGregor’s 11 maternal uncles and aunties.

His sister Ann tragically passed in March 2020 and also received a touching tribute from her nephew.

An excerpt of his Instagram post read: “My poor little friendly loving auntie. My mother’s sister.

“This stupid f*****g virus. What the f**k is happening?

“I took my family to Bull Island. Looked out at the sea. Took a deep breath. Thank f**k! Lord thank you.

“Stay tight people! We are all we got. Rest in Peace Ann Moore I love you.”

He later said: “I want to clear up that it has been confirmed she was not a victim of coronavirus.”

“I am grateful for the kind wishes and sympathy for my Auntie’s passing.”

McGregor, 34, is currently in the final stages of recovering from the horrific broken leg he suffered in his UFC trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

The Irishman was seemingly on course to return to the octagon later this year but recently revealed he’s kicking is not back to the level it was before he suffered the injury.
