UFC’s Conor McGregor made his first appearance at a football match of CSKA Moscow. The Irishman was caught yesterday attending the game of “Militarians” with Ferencvaros (0:1).
The Notorious was cheering for the home side and promised that he will support Russia, if Ireland doesn’t make it for EURO 2020.

We have asked a popular fan of Moscow “horses” Pomor about this visit:
“We all (fans of CSKA Moscow) feel positive to see Conor McGregor here”, said Pomor to Boec.COM. “And also admire his words about Khabib Nurmagomedov, who never shows connection with Russia. Khabib mentions only Dagestan, protects only these colors.”
“We will be happy to see Mr. McGregor among us again”, Pomor said.
Last year Conor was a proud honored guest of the Russian president, whom he lauded as “one of the greatest leaders of our time”. They both met each other at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium to take in World cup final and France’s 4-2 win over Croatia back in July 2018.
Upon his visit as part of a press tour, The Notorious told an expectant crowd in Moscow – he would make his UFC comeback on January 18 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (USA) against an unnamed opponent.
