It was announced today that UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor will be interviewed by MMA reporter Ariel Helwani in Manchester, England on January 28 as part of ‘An Experience With Conor McGregor,” an event hosted by the Olexy Group.
The paid event will feature an hour-long interview with ‘The Notorious,’ live entertainment, dinner, a chance to win prizes, and for a few lucky attendees — the opportunity to meet Conor McGregor face-to-face.
McGregor hasn’t stepped foot inside the octagon since he demolished Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 and became a two-division champion. Conor instead has prepared for the birth of his first son, and had previously reported that he would remained sidelined until May of this year at the earliest.
Honored and excited to be a part of this. Who will be in Manchester on Jan. 28? One hour sit-down w/ McGregor in front of a live audience. https://t.co/DlXpwHD2RH
