Just days removed from the UFC’s announcement of a Conor McGregor vs. Eddie Alvarez lightweight title fight, ‘Mystic Mac’ posted a questionable photograph on his Instagram page.
In the photo, McGregor appears to be smoking a suspicious looking hand-rolled ‘cigarette’, with squinty eyes and an overall relaxed demeanor.
See the picture in question for yourself below:
While the Instagram post is certainly meant to be humorous, it should be noted that McGregor has never tested positive for marijuana or any other drugs, recreational or performance-enhancing.
Conor’s photo posted on Tuesday pales in comparison to the controversial post-fight CBD vape session Nate Diaz has during a press conference immediately following his second fight with McGregor at UFC 202.
Diaz was investigated by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the bold move, but was ultimately not punished or fined for it.
The UFC, USADA or Athletic Commission have not commented on McGregor’s photograph, and it appears doubtful the Irishman will face any kind of punishment.
