Fighter prefers Red half of Merseyside
Conor McGregor has never been a person to shy away from letting his thoughts known and in one confrontation with fans, the UFC champion baulked at Everton by declaring himself as a Liverpool fan. The UFC champion didn’t let up in his rant against the Toffees, producing some harsh words in the process.
The friendly Derby has been a hard pill to swallow for the Blue half in recent years with Liverpool establishing their ascendancy last season winning both home and away to claim bragging rights over their city rivals. With Conor on their side now, the fan following is sure to see an increase with the build up to his upcoming against Floyd Mayweather, overflowing with media coverage from all corners.
Although, having stated previously that he is Manchester United supporter, fresh comments from McGregor seem to indicate his new found love for Liverpool football club.
The return of Champions League to Anfield was already a benchmark for Kopites to look down upon their neighbours from Goodison and with the addition of Conor McGregor to their camp, Reds are sure to let their feelings known.
