Conor McGregor has showed his love for his “brotha” Justin Bieber after bumping into him in the Bahamas this week.

The UFC star took to Instagram on Monday to tell fans his chance encounter with the Canadian singer after spotting him from across a tennis court on the Caribbean island.

In a series of photos, McGregor can be seen waving at Bieber from the other side of the court before rushing over to embrace his buddy.

The Notorious said that he believes “something from above” keeps pulling the pair of unlikely friends together.

Captioning the post, the Crumlin native said: “I bumped into @justinbieber again today. In the Bahamas!

“I always randomly see Justin out of nowhere and just chop it up, I love this kid! Two goats on a cliff sideways, just chopping it up, what’s happenin' JB my brotha, hahah.

“I put it up to the sky, this keeps happening, it’s something from above that keeps doing this!

“God bless you my brother, great to see you always. Some serve today!” he added.

McGregor and Bieber first hung out together last summer in LA following the Dubliner’s defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July.

The duo enjoyed their day of sunshine at the upmarket Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles as they lounged in a luxury cabana and downed whiskey from the Proper 12 brand founded by McGregor.
