Conor McGregor’s trip to Liverpool to watch the Grand National was disrupted by police Saturday night when he and his entourage were pulled over.
As noted by TMZ, the authorities stopped the UFC lightweight champion’s Rolls Royce after a day at Aintree race course. It’s reported that it’s unclear why McGregor was stopped and that he did not pick up a ticket from the police.
Earlier in the day, McGregor was photographed enjoying himself at the Aintree festival.
Per the MailOnline, the 28-year-old was also snapped enjoying himself at Liverpool nightclub Mansion on Saturday evening.
As reported by David Raven of the Liverpool Echo, McGregor arrived on Merseyside in style Saturday, flying in to John Lennon Airport on a private jet. The UFC sensation’s entourage made their way around the city in a fleet of three white Rolls Royces said to be worth £200,000 each.
The Irishman was evidently enjoying some downtime away from the Octagon. He was last in action at UFC 205 in November when he stopped Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight strap.
Speculation has swirled about McGregor's next move, with a bout with retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather rumoured to be on the cards. Indeed, UFC chief Dana White insisted on Saturday at UFC 210 that he expects the fight to happen, per MMAjunkie's Mike Bohn.
The three-day Grand National festival is one of the most famous horse racing meetings in the world, with the feature race Saturday, ran over four miles and 30 fences, won by One For Arthur.
