Conor McGregor recently attended a historical women’s boxing bout at his home ground in Ireland. Someone in the crowd threw a drink at the UFC fighter when he attended the Katie Taylor vs. Chantelle Cameron boxing bout.
A dejected Conor McGregor stood in the ring while the drinks came at him. The iconic fight occurred in Dublin, Ireland, and the UFC star sponsored his fellow Irish fighter. An undefeated Katie Taylor moved up a weight class for the light welterweight title. In an attempt to claim the WBO, WBA, WBC, IBO IBF, and The Ring female light-welterweight titles, she incurred her first professional loss against Cameron via majority decision.
Earlier with Eddie Hearn, Conor McGregor had announced that he was sponsoring Katie Taylor. McGregor attended the event to support Taylor. Cameras caught a drink flying in from the audience and hitting McGregor in the head. An alarmed McGregor and his security detail immediately looked back to locate the person who threw the drink. Nevertheless, the culprit disappeared amidst the sea of people attending the event. The cameras did not catch the person throwing the drink.
McGregor took to Instagram to write a hearty message appreciating Taylor’s efforts. He admired her skills, fitness, and toughness and wrote, “You are an Irish Warrior! I love you Katie, I am honored to know you and be in your presence! Thank you so much!…“
