He might not be willing to admit it, but as the recent photographic evidence clearly shows, Conor McGregor has some serious work in the gym ahead if he hopes to match Cristiano Ronaldo’s outrageous torso.

Ronaldo recently visited McGregor in a Las Vegas gym, where the Dubliner is into the final weeks of preparation for his hugely anticipated rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on August 20.

Naturally, the pair posed shirtless for photos, which they shared with their massive social media followings, and few could argue that the Real Madrid striker is currently the more impressive specimen.

Fresh from his yacht in Ibiza, CR7 has attained an almost copper hue, while McGregor, despite the Nevada rays, looked comparatively pale.

Having already vowed to overtake the European Championship winning captain on the Forbes List for the world’s highest paid athlete, McGregor is also determined to achieve the better tan.

You’d have to wonder what Nate Diaz makes of it all.
