Conor McGregor Shows Love To Manchester United, Club Respond
Conor McGregor hasn’t had the best of 2018. He was focusing more on the business-side of things, and his return to the cage saw him getting dismantled by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
However, Conor wasn’t the only one that had a torrid 2018. Much like the Irishman, the English side Manchester United endured contrasting fortunes last year. The red side of Manchester constantly topped the list of most lucrative football clubs in the world. However, their problems on the pitch persisted, especially towards the end of last year.
It would be understandable then, that Conor McGregor relates to Manchester United. Two global icons, two of the biggest names, and two entities that changed the face of their respective sports, both financially, and with their displays.
