MOSCOW, RU. (THECOUNT) — UFC fighter, Conor McGregor, attended World Cup final in person this weekend, showing up as a personal guest President Vladimir Putin.
McGregor, 30, posted a photo of himself Sunday alongside Russia’s president, 65, posing in a classic tough guy stance with the man he refers to as “one of the greatest leaders of our time.”

Conor’s caption read … “Today I was invited to the World Cup final as a guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin. This man is one of the greatest leaders of our time and I was honored to attend such a landmark event alongside him. Today was an honor for me Mr. Putin. Thank you and congratulations on an amazing World Cup.” source
He finished with “Go Russia” … written in Russian. Hopefully they’re both aware Russia got knocked out in the quarter finals, but that’s beside the point. What’s important (and weird) is that Conor is super chummy with Putin … who’s known as kind of a bad dude, depending on who you talk to.
