Conor McGregor guest of 'great leader' Vladimir Putin at World Cup final


While attending the World Cup Final in Moscow on Sunday, UFC legend Conor McGregor made sure to greet Russian President Vladimir Putin.

'Today was an honor for me Mr. Putin.

If McGregor and Nurmagomedov actually crossed paths at the stadium, it hasn't been reported yet, but it would have been the first time since the fiasco at Barclays Center in April.

McGregor ended his note with a rendering in Cyrillic of the phrase, "Go, Russia!" Your guess is as good as mine. McGregor made sure to document the moment via social media by sharing a photo in which he was seen in the stands with a plate of food: "Enjoying the World Cup final in Russian Federation", he captioned the post. Both men enjoyed each other's company as they took in the football game.

Like Putin or not, one has to admit his nation hosted a superlative and incident free World Cup...

There's room for small businesses to compete with Prime Day
It's set to take place on Tuesday July 17th, with the first Amazon Prime deals set to be released at midday on Monday 16th. The company is obviously trying to compete against Amazon's Prime Day , which will start on July 16 and last for 36 hours.

The Football world cup is coming to an end today and France are crowned the new world champions.

Pogba is a well-known fan of the Dublin MMA star and even posted a tribute to the Notorious' walk on his social media account in 2016.

Casting aspersions on his claim that Putin was the "greatest", Trent Reinsmith wrote: 'Next person to interview McGregor needs to ask him how he arrived at this opinion'. But, there's still a delay because of Conor's trial.

And Rob Wright, making reference to comedian Sasha Baron Cohen's spoof interviews, added: 'Really hoping that Conor McGregor turns out to be Sasha Baron Cohen playing the long con, because nothing else makes sense anymore'.

Khabib last fought at UFC 223 and won the lightweight belt by defeating Al Iaquinta by unanimous decision.
