Conor McGregor has been forced to pull out of the public appearance in Dublin for the yet to be confirmed appearance in Las Vegas.
The UFC superstar was due to attend the event at the Red Cow Moran Hotel on Friday.
The host (Red Cow Moran Hotel) confirmed the cancellation of the event due to “unforeseen schedule clash with McGregor in Las Vegas this Friday”.
“THE RED COW MORAN HOTEL IN ASSOCIATION WITH INDUSTRY ENTERTAINMENT REGRET TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE EVENING EVENT WITH CONOR MCGREGOR SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY 17TH FEBRUARY HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND THEIR CONTROL. AN UNAVOIDABLE SCHEDULE CHANGE WILL SEE CONOR MCGREGOR IN LAS VEGAS AT THE TIME OF THE EVENT,” THE STATEMENT READ.
speculation will be rife to what exactly has led to McGregor ditching his hometown event in favor of a trip across the pond to the U.S. Disappointed Irish fans would certainly be appeased should his appearance in the “fighting capital of the world” have anything to do with a return to the octagon.
