The Irishman admitted he and Tyson resolved their previous differences having fallen out in the past
Conor McGregor revealed he and Mike Tyson have resolved any outstanding differences before heaping praise on the former world champion’s strain of marijuana, ‘KO Kush’.
The ‘Notorious’ saw Tyson at the Helix in Dublin when the former world heavyweight champion was giving a speech at a meet and greet function.
The former two-weight UFC champion suggested the duo had squashed a long-lasting beef after finally meeting face-to-face, although it is not clear what he was referring to exactly.
Taking to Instagram, the 29-year-old also revealed Tyson’s homegrown marijuana strain ‘KO Kush’ was ‘really nice’, although it is unclear exactly how he knew this was the case.
He wrote: “I went to see Mike Tyson last night in the Helix, Dublin, Ireland. I love and respect Mike Tyson. And I love the Helix. I won my first World Title here, and also my second.
“It was good to meet you Mike. You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun. You are in good spirits and I was happy to see this! I will always have the height of respect for you!
“Some decisions you have made around your finances I do not agree with. As a fighter you must fight here. The most. And this is a fight that never ends. It is even a fight that we pass on to our next in line. Our blood line.
“Make sure you stay switched on with those around you at all times. You have good people around you now, I can tell. But stay switched on.
“Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch “KO Kush” is really nice. It was an honour to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavor [sic].”
McGregor is currently serving an indefinite suspension from the UFC after his involvement in a brawl after UFC 229.
Shortly after losing his lightweight title fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov last month, a melee ensued which saw both men receive suspensions.
Tyson was no stranger to controversy in and out of the ring either, starting fights at press conferences and infamously biting off part of Evander Holyfield’s ear during their rematch.

And the Irishman was all too happy to encourage the boxing legend to undertake similar measures to anyone who dared to cross him.
He continued: “Just remember, if someone tries to rip you. Rip their nose off their face.
“You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it! Don’t let anyone take anything from you. You owe nobody nothing. It is you who is owed. Always remember that.
“I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson!”
