WWE champ-champ Becky Lynch and Daniel Bryan decided to stop by the home of former UFC champ-champ Conor McGregor while touring Ireland this week.
On Thursday, WWE posted photos of Lynch and Bryan working out at Straight Blast Gym (SBG) Ireland, the gym that McGregor calls home, as they worked with the Irishman’s head coach John Kavanagh.
Lynch has actually worked out with Kavanagh previously when she was back at home in Ireland.
Both McGregor and Kavanagh have often shown support of Lynch during her professional wrestling career. In fact, McGregor sent out a special congratulations to Lynch after she reached ‘champ-champ’ status following her win in the WrestleMania 35 main event.
“The Man’ Becky-Two Belts, the champ-champ is here at SBG, the place that breeds the champ-champs in Ireland,” Lynch said. “Now I’m not saying this is the sole reason but I started training with John Kavanagh about this time last April and since then it’s been nowhere but up.”
Lynch even did her best McGregor impression as she copied his strut walking through the gym.
Meanwhile, Bryan is an avid mixed martial arts and Brazilian jiu-jitsu enthusiast who has trained alongside former UFC champion Benson Henderson at the MMA Lab in Arizona in the past as well.
WWE is currently on tour in Europe with a stop in Ireland this week where Lynch and Bryan took the time to get some extra training in with one of the top teams on the Emerald Isle.
Bryan has brushed up against more than a few fighters in his career as well.
Bryan famously engaged in a short war of words with welterweight competitor Mike Jackson after he dismantled former WWE superstar CM Punk in his second UFC fight.
He also fired off a few social media messages at reigning UFC flyweight champion Henry Cejudo after he went on a viral campaign hoping to catch the attention of Bryan’s sister-in-law, Nikki Bella.
Now it appears Lynch and Bryan are getting in a little extra training and sparring under Kavanagh and his team at SBG before stepping back into the ring during the WWE European tour.
