Conor McGregor offers to fight Conan O’Brien, Mark Wahlberg in same night for UFC shares

New, comments

Conor McGregor is staying busy on social media.

Conor McGregor might be “retired” from MMA, but he’s certainly staying busy on social media. The Notorious One never seems to miss it when a celebrity mentions him, and this time it was talk-show host Conan O’Brien.

Conan was stopped by TMZ Sports coming out of an event at UCLA and asked if he, like Mark Walhberg, would be willing to sell some of his shares in the UFC to McGregor (since, like a bunch of celebrities, he is a minority owner). O’Brien, who never misses an opportunity to ham it up, joking said that’d he’d rather square off with Conor instead:

“I will fight him for his...if he can take me in the Octagon!”

Conor didn’t take long to respond, offering to take on both Conan and Wahlberg:

Just another day in famousville, I guess.

McGregor has repeatedly demanded shares in the promotion as a part of his fight contract for a return, but UFC president Dana White has shot that down hard. Conor hasn’t stepped in the cage since a UFC 229 loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov.
