According to photos spotted on Instagram and a report on Pulse, McGregor gave thumbs-up and a cheeky smile, showing no signs of being bothered by the cold in the city.

McGregor: Why the Eagles jersey?

The main reason for McGregor wearing the Super Eagles jersey is not clear. Still, it can be deduced that either the Irishman is a fan of the Nigerian team, or he is looking for a battle against Nigerian UFC fighter, Kamaru Usman.

McGregor's Career in MMA

On March 9, 2008, McGregor had his first professional MMA bout, as a lightweight, defeating Gary Morris with a second-round TKO.

After McGregor won his second fight against Mo Taylor, he made his featherweight debut in a loss via kneebar against submission specialist, Artemij Sitenkov.

McGregor to make acting debut

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Conor McGregor is a man of many talents.

The UFC fighter, who owns his own whisky brand, will soon be able to add 'movie star' to his growing list of achievements.

McGregor will be part of an upcoming movie called Road House.

The film also will star Hollywood actor, Jake Gyllenhaal. The movie is the remake of the 1989 film of the same name. That version featured Patrick Swayze as a martial arts expert and bouncer who is hired to restore order at a sleazy bar.
