Exclusive News Conor McGregor offers condolences to Francis Ngannou over son's death

Irish MMA superstar Conor McGregor has offered his condolences to former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou following the tragic death of Ngannou's 15-month-old son Kobe.

He prayed that the Lord would grant young Kobe a place in heaven until he meets again with his grieving father, Francis Ngannou.

"Absolutely gutted reading this Francis! I can only imagine the pain you are in right now. I am so sorry to hear this news. I pray God has the best and safest place in heaven for him, until you meet again," he wrote in reply to Ngannou’s announcement on Monday, April 29 via social media.

The Cameroonian boxer took to social media on Monday, April 29 to announce that his young son who was born on January 13, 2023 had passed away on April 27, 2024.

In a social media post, Ngannou wrote "01/13/2023 - 04/27/2024. Too soon to leave but yet he's gone. My little boy, my mate, my partner Kobe was full of life and joy. Now, he's laying without life. I shouted his name over and over but he's not responding."

The 37-year-old fighter went on to express his immense grief and struggle to come to terms with the tragic loss.

"I was my best self next to him and now I have no clue of who I am. Life is so unfair to hit us where it hurts the most. How do you deal with such a thing? How can you live with it? Please help me if you have an idea because I really don't know what to do and how to deal with this," he wrote.

In an earlier post before announcing Kobe's death, a distraught Ngannou reflected on the cruelty of life.

"What's the purpose of life if what we're fighting tooth and nail to get away from is what finally hits us the hardest!? Why is life so unfair and merciless? Why does life always take what we don't have? I'm fucking tired," he expressed.

Meanwhile, Ngannou has not elaborated on the circumstances surrounding his son Kobe's passing.
