Conor McGregor Turns up to Race Day in the Most McGregor Way Possible
Fashion is one of those things where most people can tell you what does or doesn’t look good, but might not be able to tell you why. In any case, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor couldn’t care less about what you think he looks like because he’s going to rock it regardless.
While McGregor may have traded in his custom suits that he had made up for nearly every occasion imaginable, he certainly hasn’t stopped trying to make a splash with whatever he wears. You may recall McGregor dressing up as famed Mexican drug cartel leader “El Chapo” back before UFC 196 when he was scheduled to face off against Rafael dos Anjos for the lightweight strap. Dos Anjos eventually had to drop out of the fight due to injury and was replaced by Nate Diaz, who defeated McGregor by rear naked choke and kicked off a heated rivalry that still plays out in the headlines today.

Sporting a patterned Louis Vuitton shirt, unbuttoned of course to show off his tattoos, McGregor sauntered through the crowd at the Aintree racetrack for the Grand national races in a pair of reflective silver shoes and the kind of flip down glasses your Dad might wear on a day out to the beach. And why not? The day looks to have been incredible, and any sunny day you can get in the English countryside is one to be savoured.

According to one punter on Twitter, McGregor said to fans at the famous racetrack that “Floyd is going down” if the highly anticipated fight with the veteran boxer Floyd Mayweather ever eventuates. McGregor and Mayweather have been pursuing a fight against each other for some time now, and a bout agreement is rumoured to be getting close to being signed.

If McGregor really does want to come away with the win over such a seasoned opponent like Mayweather, often described as being the greatest boxer of all time, he may be looking to spend less time wandering around at the races, and more time in the gym.
