The UFC 286 event in London was supposed to be CONOR MCGREGOR watching Leon Edwards defend his title against Kamaru Usman, but he didn’t show up.

There were many famous people at the North Greenwich dome for the promotion’s first English pay-per-view in over seven years.

Despite the Irishman’s tease, McGregor remained hidden from view.

The Notorious, 34, has dropped hints this week that he may show up to watch Gunnar Nelson’s fight against Bryan Barbarena with his team.

He stated, “Yeah, I’d like so,” while on The MMA Hour.

The appropriate response is, “That’s what I want. Perhaps I’ll see you at the [UFC 286] card.

I had plans to head out to London’s Black Forge, where we’ve been making some headway, after this meeting.

As well as Gunnar Nelson, aka “Gunni,” there are other names on the card. See him in person and keep an eye on his pursuit of the welterweight championship.

Dana White, president of the UFC, confirmed that arrangements had been made for the Irish fighter to appear, saying, “We have seats for him [McGregor].


In other words, he’s frantically dashing here and there. He is currently engaged in a major public relations campaign.

He held a pop-up shop here to promote his bar, Proper Twelve, and his other businesses.

However, if he does show up, we have a place for him to sit.

McGregor, the UFC’s biggest star, said this week that he wants to fight whoever wins the rubber match between Edwards and Usman.

It was stated by him, “Yeah, I’d like [a welterweight title shot]. In that case, please grant my wish.

Edwards, at age 31, successfully defended his welterweight title with a majority decision victory over Usman, a former pound-for-pound king.

After breaking his leg in the third bout of his trilogy with Dustin Poirier in July 2021, McGregor hasn’t returned to the octagon.

He’ll fight Michael Chandler in a welterweight bout when the year winds down.

McGregor has not been in the United States Anti-Doping Agency’s testing pool for the required six months, so a date for the fight has not been set.
