Conor McGregor welcomed Arsenal legend Ian Wright to his pub and the footage is brilliant

Ian Wright and Conor McGregor

Ian Wright and Conor McGregor are both massive names in their respective sports, football and UFC. But to see the pair having a good time on a night out was not something we expected to see!

McGregor is on the road back to the Octagon after taking over a year out after he broke his leg in his last match. He has no opponent as of yet, but has been sharing videos of him training, trying to get back to his best.

However, he could be about to put the boxing gloves back on with Floyd Mayweather offering a mega fight purse up to take on Notorious once again in the ring. Although it would be an exhibition fight this time rather than a professional bout.

On the other hand, Wright is one of the best strikers the Premier League has seen. The Arsenal legend will undoubtedly go down as one of the best English forwards of all time.

Although now retired, Wright keeps his name in the game by being a successful pundit for the likes of the BBC, featuring on Match of the Day quite frequently.

They saw each other on a night out at McGregor’s bar, making an instant bond with footage of the duo going viral and providing us with great content.

When they met it was like they had been mates for years and looked deep in conversation, I wonder what they could have been talking about?!

Wright then posed for a picture with a UFC belt also to make the meeting even funnier and providing us with more content to enjoy.

They looked to share some food together as well as having a traditional pint of Guinness, after all, they did meet in a Dublin bar.

Sports stars from different walks of life are always likely to bump into one another, but when it happens randomly it certainly provides us with entertainment.

We saw Tyson Fury recently pop into a random pub in Liverpool in a suit, go to the bathroom and come back out topless before having a half pint with locals, this sort of thing does happen and is always enjoyable.

Fans were lapping up the meeting, commenting the following on a TikTok video compiled of the two: “2 legends.”

“They both looked in awe of each other.”

“Ian Wright is the happiest man alive… Fact.”

“Love to see it”

“McGregor finally met the boss!”

“Brilliant, love McGregor.”

“Best mates now.”
