Could Cristiano Ronaldo be trading in his penalty kicks for head kicks? 

Just weeks after helping his Portugal National team to the UEFA Euro 2016 crown, it looks like CR7 is taking on another challenge, inside the confines of a mixed martial arts cage. 

Cristiano posted a photo on his Instagram account, showing a face-off against one of the most popular and dangerous mixed martial artists in the world, none other than UFC Featherweight king Conor "The Notorious" McGregor. 


Great to see you bro!!💪🏽🔝

As the caption probably gives away, Cristiano isn't likely to make a transition to MMA anytime soon, if ever, even. 

I mean, he is arguably the one of the top-2 football players in the world, so there's really no need to switch sports now. 

It's likely just two of the world's most polarizing athletes, both on top of their respective games, getting together for the 'gram. 

Heck, almost a million people have already liked it.
