Conor McGregor Hires Bodyguards After Receiving Death Threats

UFC 196 McGregor vs. Diaz Press Conference

MMA fighter or not, if you’re famous, at some point you’re probably going to need to hire some bodyguards for all the crazy people out there.

McGregor and his girlfriend attended the VIP Style Awards in Dublin last Friday, noticeably with two huge bodyguards by their side.

Via The Irish Sun:

“A source explained: “Conor and Dee arrived around 30 minutes after most of the other red-carpet arrivals and they were accompanied by an entourage.

“He’d two huge minders with him for the entire evening and although everyone was in great form, they didn’t leave his side once.

“One of them even waited directly outside the toilets when he nipped in at one stage!

“Conor was really relaxed and in great humour but the bodyguards didn’t let him out of their sight for even a minute.

“Anyone who wanted a picture or a quick word with Conor had to go through the minders.

“He told people their names were Rocky and Drago and that he’d hired them because of death threats.”

Better to be safe than sorry. Floyd Mayweather is one of the best boxers in history and he doesn’t go anywhere without his entourage of massive bodyguards. Protect yourself at all times.
