Drake really loves to support athletes, especially those who are making a name for themselves. McGregor attended the recent Summer Sixteen show in Los Angeles and then the UFC fighter had the opportunity to hang out and kick it with Drizzy. The pair can be seen in photos smiling and having a great time. Why wouldn’t they gravitate to each other since both are breaking records and making waves in their industries. McGregor is so popular with MMA fans that he has been breaking pay per view records. The Toronto rapper and his music is so in demand that his tour dates are being sold out well in advance.
Conor attended the Summer Sixteen tour concert in Los Angeles and then both stars took photos afterwards. Drizzy captioned his photo with the UFC fighter “We are young and in control. All we want is good service on a yacht…is that too much to ask?” – @thenotoriousmma aka The Defaz King. McGregor returned the praise, posting his own photo with the 6 god along with the caption “This is what being the youngest and the greatest at the same time looks like! It was an honour to watch this man perform last night! @champagnepapi much love and respect my brother, you are an ANIMAL! Thank you for the hospitality! #TheRevengeTour.
Drake has shown much love for the Irish MMA fighter in the past so the latest photos are not surprising. The evening before the UFC 196 event Drizzy posted a celebratory Instagram post of the incredible athlete, but the next day Conor lost to Diaz. Last month the two UFC fighters went head to head again and McGregor showed what he is made of, coming out on top and raking in extremely high payouts for his efforts. Drake was not the only celebrity that McGregor hung with at the concert because Bono and Jimmy Lovine were also there, showing Drizzy much enthusiasm and hanging out with Conor.
