she told VIP Magazine. She added:
“He was already training when I met him, so I really admired his dedication to that, too.”

she said. She elaborated:
“I cook, clean, pack his gym bag, all that kind of stuff.”
Conor has always spoken in the past about his appreciation and commitment to Dee, who has supported him from the days of “absolute nothing”.
Coach John Kavanagh about Conor’s Career
In an interview with the Sunday Independent, his coach — John Kavanagh — explained how he rose to fame from humble beginnings. He said:
“It wasn’t easy. Conor was on the dole, earning £85 a fight and training at the height of winter in a cold gym,”
“Now, I don’t care how passionate you are, but there are always going to be periods thinking ‘F*** this! What am I doing here?
“Conor’s annual earnings for that five-year period was something like €1,500 (£1,300) a year. There was no money and I was running out of ideas. The UFC was a closed shop.”
