Don't worry, it was just a photo opp.

Ronaldo, FoxSports.com notes, is friends with McGregor's trainer, John Kavanagh, and is on vacation in the United States. The photo was taken in Las Vegas, where McGregor is training for his rematch against Nate Diaz, set for UFC 202 on Aug. 20 at T-Mobile Arena.

No, Ronaldo wouldn’t have a shot in a real fight against McGregor, but it's not like Ronaldo doesn't have any muscle himself.
