Conor McGregor goes suit shopping in Beverly Hills ahead of UFC 197

By on

Conor McGregor is busy shopping fine silks in Beverly Hills as he continues his UFC 197 promotion.

Mail Online confirms that the UFC superstar was shopping in the celebrity hotspot area looking out for some silk suits.

Dressed in green T-shirt and his signature snake-skin shoes, Conor McGregor is seen with his chest puffed up and his usual confident self.

McGregor also took to Instagram and talked about his shopping rendezvous and wrote: “God bless the Italians and their fine silks. Shout out Uncle Frank! [UFC co-owner Frank Fertitta] Danari fanno danari [money make money].”

He also posted a picture of himself with his truckloads of shopping bags from Dolce and Gabbana.

The UFC featherweight champion who beat Brazilian Jose Aldo in 13 seconds is already a huge star in America and has joined the ranks of Ronda Rousey in terms of popularity.

McGregor even has his image emblazoned in street art in the famous artist area in Venice, California just like Rousey. The graffiti depicts McGregor dressed as rapper Biggie Smalls who too shared the same ‘Notorious’ nickname as the Irishman.

Ever since his win over Aldo at UFC 194, McGregor has been in the news a lot recently.

First, many fighters wanted a title shot against McGregor. Frankie Edgar even claimed that UFC President, Dana White promised him a fight against Conor but that didn’t materialize. Edgar even accused McGregor of calling the shots at UFC. Even McGregor’s last opponent, Jose Aldo claimed that UFC gave McGregor too much power.

Recently, Floyd Mayweather Jr. also slammed McGregor and made quite a few racist comments which eventually didn’t go down well with the Irishman. At the UFC 197 press event, McGregor fired back at the American boxer and said that Mayweather needs to learn before opening his mouth.

Although McGregor has put on an impressive performance last year, his trash talks however continues. He called his next opponent, Rafael dos Anjos a “traitor” to his own country, Brazil and at the UFC 197 press meet called him a “gringo and sloppier version of Jose Aldo”.
