On Saturday night, the former two-division UFC champion attended the Boston Bruins-Columbus Blue Jackets game in Boston, where McGregor did the ceremonial puck drop. It was Irish Heritage Night ahead of St. Patrick’s Day at TD Garden.
As you might expect, the crowd went wild as McGregor was announced, and he walked onto the ice with his trademark “Foggy Dew”/“Hypnotize” playing in the arena. You can check it out here (via Twitter):
Prior to that, McGregor gave Bruins players a pre-game speech in the locker room, which you can check out here (via Instagram):
The Bruins tweeted out a photo showing McGregor commanding the players’ attention as he roamed the locker room.
The Bruins went on to defeat the Blue Jackets 2-1 in overtime. Brad Marchand busted out a McGregor celebration after scoring the winning goal.
