CONOR McGREGOR has revealed his kids will NOT be in attendance for his upcoming fight against Dustin Poirier.
The Irish fighter returns to action this weekend after a year away from the sport when he will run it back with the American fighter.
But McGregor says that Conor Jr and Croia will be staying in their hotel room as their dad takes part in the UFC 257 main event.
The two-time UFC Champion revealed that his kids do watch and both his daughter and son are in Abu Dhabi for the event but are too young to attend the bout.
Speaking at a press conference before the fight, he said: "My kids will watch. I’m after having them here all fight week and giving them the experience.
"They’re a little young though, I don’t think I’ll have them in the arena for the actual bout but they’ll be watching their Daddy for sure and I look forward to going back after the fight."
McGregor's opponent Poirier says that although his daughter knows he competes in MMA she is not allowed watch her dad fighting.
He said: "My daughter knows what I do obviously but we don’t really let her watch. She helps me take the stitches out when I get back. She knows what is going on."
Michael Chandler and Dan Hooker will compete in the co-main event at UFC 257 and Chandler says that his son will be sleeping while he fights.
