Conor McGregor is a worldwide superstar, and everyone wants to attend his fights. Here, we take a look at some of the biggest celebrities that have seen the ‘Notorious’ one in action.
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the biggest names in world football and Conor McGregor is one of the biggest names in the world of combat sports – so it’s nice to see these two are friends. What do they talk about? Possibly how they are better than everyone else. It’s safe to say they are both on top of their game, they have met on a number of occasions and participated in photoshoots. They have even partied together over the years, it is believed they first met on the night of Jennifer Lopez’s 47th birthday party in Las Vegas. This Bromance could last for a long time.
Canadian singer Drake is a massive sports fan – as are most Canadians. He is a huge Toronto Raptors fan, but he also loves his fighting. Drake is regularly seen rubbing shoulders with top sportsmen, but he has also been in McGregor’s corner on fight night with an Irish flag draped across his shoulders.
Despite being in a relationship with Dee Devlin in 2008 and the pair have two children together, McGregor is no stranger to being linked to attractive women. One friendship that has blossomed is with singer Rihanna. The two have met up in Dublin and the UFC star has attended her gigs, and they always seem to be very complimentary about each other – something that doesn’t come too easy for McGregor.
Schwarzenegger once uttered the famous line “I’ll be back” in his blockbuster film The Terminator, but the sentiment can also be used for McGregor as the UFC star always seems to turn up no matter how many times he ‘retires’. These two have always been complimentary about the other, and it’s always good to have a Terminator in your corner.
McGregor is proud to be Irish and always has the Ireland flag with him at his fights, press conferences and weigh-ins. Another proud Irishman is U2 frontman Bono. These two have been pictured together on many occasions and seeing as they both love their country very much; it is highly unlikely they will ever fall out.
