Conor McGregor has revealed how he struck up a friendship with another young king.

The Irish UFC superstar uploaded a photo with Drake to Instagram at the end of summer, paying "much love and respect" to his new "brother" and thanking him for the hospitality shown to him at a gig the 6 God was headlining.

Ahead of his fight with Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title at UFC 205 in New York this weekend, McGregor sat down with UFC's Megan Olivi and came clean on his relationship with Drizzy:

"I'm a big fan of Drake. I had a meeting with Jimmy Iovine of Apple and he invited me to the show…I'd spoke to Drake before the first Diaz fight – he reached out and messaged me – and we've been in contact since then.

Drake could follow Kanye West's lead in watching McGregor fight.

If Drake does make an appearance ringside at UFC 205, he'll be following the lead of Kanye West, who attended McGregor's last fight, which was a points decision over Nate Diaz.

McGregor's fight with Eddie Alvarez will headline the UFC's first ever event in New York.
