Conor McGregor made an unmissable entrance at a UFC event in Gdańsk in Poland on Saturday.
The 29-year-old had not been seen cageside since his tenth-round boxing rules loss to Floyd Mayweather in August, but he wanted to show support to his Straight Blast Gym teammate Artem Lobov.

Lobov was competing on the preliminary card but lost a three round decision to Andre Fili. Having now suffered back-to-back defeats, Lobov said after the fight that he was considering switching sports and competing in boxing.
“Paulie [Malignaggi] wouldn’t be a bad fight,” Lobov told UFC. “I know he’s after big paydays so he might not be interested in a fight against me but if he was, I’d be all for it.”
McGregor, meanwhile, is in line for his own UFC fight as he is expected to defend his lightweight title against jiu-jitsu expert Tony Ferguson.
UFC president Dana White recently said: “It’s the fight that makes sense and is the fight that has to happen.”
