And the managerial legend admitted he could not turn down a glass of McGregor’s Proper 12 whiskey.
Mourinho, 58, wrote on Instagram: “Yes it’s him!
“Yes, the great @thenotoriousmma is in Rome and yes it was a real pleasure to meet him, to share some stories and to offer him the most beautiful shirt in town @officialasroma.
“He made a miracle, it’s impossible to say no to Conor, I had to try @properwhiskey.”
McGregor, 33, also posted: “Respect to this man. Legend.”
The former UFC champion last fought in July, losing to Dustin Poirier – the man he beat in 2014 but lost to in a rematch in January.
But disaster struck in the trilogy bout as McGregor suffered a leg break just seconds before the end of round one, with Poirier, 32, winning by doctor stoppage.
McGregor underwent surgery in Los Angeles and continued his rehabilitation process in America while returning to training.
But he recently took a European holiday vacation, with his fiancee Dee Devlin, son Conor Jr, four, daughter Croia, two and newborn Rian.
And Rian, born in May, was christened in the Vatican, and McGregor even posed with the keys.
Meanwhile Mourinho, who returned to management after being sacked by Tottenham in April, has started with five wins in Roma’s opening seven games.
They currently sit fourth in the Serie A, six points behind league leaders Napoli.
