McGregor will entertain thousands of fans

McGregor is still celebrating an emphatic win last month at the world renowned event ‘UFC 205’ to become the organisation’s first ever world champion in two different weight classes after beating then lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez.

He is noted for his entertaining and brash style which saw his number of followers surge over the past couple of years and is currently one of the biggest earners in the sport.

He is also credited with helping the sport gain even more coverage worldwide in the past year with big grudge matches against fellow MMA stalwarts Jose Aldo and Nate Diaz.
