Maybe getting a new tattoo is becoming a pre-fight ritual.

Conor McGregor added two new tattoos to his collection over the weekend. The UFC interim champion posted a picture of them on Twitter late Sunday night.

A few months before UFC 189, McGregor added a tiger tattoo around his belly button. On Sunday, the Irishman got the words "McGregor" and "Notorious" on top and bottom of the tiger, respectively. McGregor already had a very distinctive chest piece: a baboon with a crown sticking out its tongue.

McGregor's coach John Kavanagh jokingly tweeted Monday morning that his pupil is banned from getting any more.

McGregor will be coaching The Ultimate Fighter 23 opposite Urijah Faber this fall. The reality series premieres Sept. 9 on FOX Sports 1. Then, McGregor will attempt to unify the UFC featherweight title against Jose Aldo at UFC 194 on Dec. 12 in Las Vegas.
