Conor McGregor met up with an Irish football legend after Mayweather defeat


Conor McGregor didn’t get the win last night, but the show had to go on, and ‘The Notorious’s’ official after party still took place,

2,000 were in attendance at the Encore Beach Club on the Las Vegas strip to catch a glimpse of the Irish light middleweight who was defeated on his pro debut against Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor reportedly settled the bar tab at $85,000, and he took some time to have a drink and a chat with Ireland’s record goalscorer Robbie Keane.

The new Atlético de Kolkata signing hails from Tallaght but played for Crumlin United in his teenage years, while McGregor himself boxed with Crumlin BC a few years later.
