Conor McGregor had some kind words for the grandmother of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246.

I don’t care what you think about McGregor. This is absolutely awesome. I think it’s also a sign of McGregor’s increased maturity.

He smoked Cowboy in epic fashion, and then helped console his opponent’s grandmother with some very kind words.

I think it’s safe to say McGregor has done a lot of growing up. There’s no chance this would have happened four years ago.

Major props to McGregor for pulling off such a classy move. Cowboy is a legend in the fighting game, he’s a hell of a good dude, his grandmother obviously wanted to help her grandson.

It was a heartwarming moment all the way around.
