But recently in an interview with BT Sport, Mcgregor jokingly said: "He didn't get in and spar but he's a nice guy and he's in some shape. But there's no competition, I'd slap the head off him."He's in tremendous shape. He's a true athlete and a great guy, a good friend of mine. I've been talking to him a long time.
"He messaged me a long time ago on Instagram a good while back because I was wearing his underwear for the [Diego] Brandao fight."
Speaking about Ronaldo, the Mixed Martial artist further added: "He anticipated the lighting, he was under the lighting and had the abs going, he had the pose. I went more lats and he went more abs!"
