Former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright visited Dublin, where he shared a drink with UFC star Conor McGregor at the Irishman’s pub.

The gregarious Match of the Day pundit shared a video with his Instagram followers of himself and McGregor enjoying the entertainment on offer at The Black Forge Inn. 

Wright’s visit comes in the same month as comedian Kevin Hart, rap legend Coolio and poker player Dan Bilzeran enjoyed a night at McGregor’s famous venue.

Wright shared a Guinness with UFC’s first double champion in the video, with the two deep in conversation. 

He also joined patrons in enjoying a violin performance as he showed off the ‘Dublin energy’ before posing with McGregor’s belts. 

The Black Forge Inn, near McGregor’s home town of Crumlin, is one of three pubs on McGregor’s portfolio, alongside the Waterside Inn in Howth and The Marble Arch in Drimnagh. 

The pub survived a scare earlier in the year when it was targeted by petrol bombs, but it appears to have bounced back well as it continues to welcome stars from the worlds of sports, comedy and music, among others. 

And a high-profile return to the sporting world is on the cards for McGregor.

McGregor, who has not fought in almost a year since suffering a horrific broken leg in his defeat by Dustin Poirier, shared a picture of his clash with Mayweather on Instagram on Thursday evening.

Alongside the picture, he hinted at the pair facing off one more time as he wrote: ‘I accept.’

Mayweather’s victory against The Notorious proved to be his last ever pro fight, taking his record to 50 wins and zero losses or draws.

From their original fight, Mayweather reportedly earned a massive purse worth around $280million, with McGregor taking $130million.
