CONOR McGregor has revealed how he and rival Mike Tyson have buried the hatchet – as he declares his love for the former world champ’s homegrown weed.
The “Notorious” resolved his differences with Tyson after the pair came face to face at the heavyweight’s meet and greet at the Helix in Dublin.
McGregor said he was happy to put his beef with the boxer “to bed” and insisted he would “always have the height of respect” for Tyson.
And the Irish fighter paid tribute to the controversial boxer’s soon-to-be released strain of cannabis, grown on his ranch, which he described as “very nice”.
The 30-year-old posted a picture of Tyson exhaling smoke on Instagram after the Helix show, telling his almost 30million followers: “I went to see Mike Tyson last night in the Helix, Dublin, Ireland.”
“You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun.”
McGregor continued: “I love and respect Mike Tyson. And I love the Helix. I won my first World Title here, and also my second.
“It was good to meet you Mike. You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun.
“You are in good spirits and I was happy to see this! I will always have the height of respect for you!
“Some decisions you have made around your finances I do not agree with.
“As a fighter you must fight here. The most. And this is a fight that never ends. It is even a fight that we pass on to our next in line. Our blood line.”
Praising Tyson, 52, for his weed, the Notorious gushed: “Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch ‘KO Kush’ is really nice.
“It was an honour to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavour.”
He added: “You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it!
“I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson!”
McGregor is currently serving an indefinite suspension from UFC following a brawl with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Both could face a lifetime ban after the riot following their UFC 229 lightweight title fight last month.
