The unexpected meetup between former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor and iconic rapper Snoop Dogg set the online world abuzz. This momentous encounter took place in Dublin, following Snoop Dogg’s electrifying concert performance.
The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly when Snoop Dogg brought the Irish MMA sensation onto the stage during his concert.
On the night of Snoop Dogg’s Dublin concert, McGregor shared a candid picture of his journey to the venue on his Instagram feed. As the night progressed, a plethora of images capturing their interaction flooded the internet.
Videos emerged, showcasing Conor’s passionate discussion with Snoop about the world of combat sports while Snoop enjoyed some pot.
Snoop Dogg has been a fan of MMA for a while now, even going on the Joe Rogan’s experience a while back and discussing UFC pay model.
Besides that, he also had a run in with the infamous Dale Brown, of Detroit self defense fame.
Conor McGregor has been on a hiatus from the combat sports world since UFC 264 in 2021. A leg injury resulted in fractures to his left tibia and fibula, which led to a TKO defeat at the hands of Dustin Poirier.
McGregor has undergone a rigorous rehabilitation process and is poised for his much-anticipated return to the UFC. Initially slated for a showdown against Michael Chandler in the welterweight division, current circumstances hint at a delayed comeback.
But UFC president Dana White has hinted at the possibility of McGregor’s return in the coming year.
Renowned UFC commentator Joe Rogan holds unwavering faith in Conor McGregor’s capacity to bounce back from his injury-induced setback. In a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan shared his perspective on McGregor’s current situation.
Rogan stated: “If it wasn’t for his leg snap, he’s still in the prime of his career…”
He also emphasized how seriously McGregor’s injury has affected everything. Nonetheless, Rogan was optimistic about McGregor’s chances.
He continued: “I just think that if anybody can do it, it’s going to be Conor.”
Rogan drew parallels between McGregor’s situation and that of other combatants like Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman, who faced challenges later in their careers. However, Rogan also said that McGregor’s considerable wealth and status as a champion might potentially diminish his drive to re-enter the octagon.
