It wasn’t too long ago that UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor found himself threatened on social media by a man wielding an AK-47. The threat was serious enough that the FBI began investigating into the incident.

During a recent appearance at an event alongside his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, McGregor was accompanied by two bodyguards according to ‘Sweeny and Moran’ who received an eyewitness account of the situation:

“Conor and Dee arrived around 30 minutes after most of the other red-carpet arrivals and they were accompanied by an entourage.

He [had] two huge minders with him for the entire evening and although everyone was in great form, they didn’t leave his side once.

One of them even waited directly outside the toilets when he nipped in at one stage!

Conor was really relaxed and in great humor but the bodyguards didn’t let him out of their sight for even a minute.

Anyone who wanted a picture or a quick word with Conor had to go through the minders.

He told people their names were Rocky and Drago and that he’d hired them because of death threats.”

Stay tuned for information as it becomes available.
