Conor McGregor can literally turn anything into fight promotion. He's done it again just by attending the World Cup Final. McGregor was in attendance in Moscow on Sunday as France defeated Croatia. He claimed to be the personal guest of Vladimir Putin and even posted a video on social media claiming that he was building his Russian compound. The interesting part about this is that his biggest UFC rival, Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is Russian, was also in the stands in Moscow. This is the 1st time the 2 have been in the same building since Conor attempted to attack Nurmagomedov back in March by throwing a dolly through a bus window after the UFC's media day in Brooklyn. This fight gets more and more interesting by the day.

Today I was invited to the World Cup final as a guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin. This man is one of the greatest leaders of our time and I was honored to attend such a landmark event alongside him. Today was an honor for me Mr. Putin. Thank you and congratulations on an amazing World Cup. Россия вперёд!
