The owner of the tattoo, Lucia Gomez, is said to be living in Uruguay. She expressed a desire to be close to the Irish fighter, thereby tattooing McGregor’s name as a form of admiration.
Her tattoo drew criticism from the online community when it was written in the classic Microsoft Comic Sans typeface, a type that Westerners absolutely hate and the “g” in “McGregor” doesn’t either. capitalized properly.
Despite criticism from public opinion, McGregor, after learning about this image, re-posted a photo of the tattoo on his social network account. McGregor showed great interest because in addition to retweeting, the Irishman also commented on the original post with a heart emoji.
This is not the first time a sports star like McGregor has fans ready to “print ink” on him to show his passion.

He recently had his first practice session and is expected to return to the MMA octagon in the summer.
