Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII might not have been the most exciting game in football history, but at least Conor McGregor wore a flashy suit.
Former UFC two-division champion McGregor was at the big game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, where the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3. McGregor was there with his son, who was decked out in a purple suit to match his dad’s.
The two walked on the field before the game and hob-nobbed with some big-wigs, including Patriots owner Robert Kraft. It’s not known if they stayed for the entire game or if they bailed early. (And really, many fans wouldn’t have blamed them if they did.)
Check out the photos of McGregor and Conor Jr. in the gallery above.
McGregor recently was given a six-month suspension and $50,000 fine by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his role in a post-fight melee at UFC 229 this past October in Las Vegas. He’ll be eligible to return in early April. Despite coming off a loss in the UFC 229 title fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov, McGregor still is the sport’s most bankable and popular star, as evidenced by his Super Bowl appearance.
