Rory McIlroy may be a man accustomed to high-profile sporting occasions but he enjoyed one without the pressure of competing by taking in Conor McGregor v Donald Cerrone last night.
The golfer was attending at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, watching footage that he posted to his Instagram Stories, there weren’t many of us in the house with a better seat.
When hitting record just a couple of seconds into the bout McIlroy could never have guessed that the fight would be over by the time he put his phone back in his pocket. McGregor secured a TKO victory within 40 seconds and will need to be quick to catch Rory’s stories before they expire. If don’t you’ll miss out, you’ll get a taste of how good his view was in the pic below…
A memorable experience for Rory McIlroy who, like Conor McGregor, is hoping for lots of success throughout 2020. The four-time major winner wasn’t the sole famous face attending , with the likes of Tom Brady and Tyson Fury also present to watch McGregor’s quickfire victory.
After the fight, Conor paid tribute to Cerrone, also as his grandmother Jerry, and spoke about getting back to the gym to work on the next stage of his comeback.
If the remainder of the year goes anything like last night, he’ll be doing well.
