Conor McGregor wants Justin Bieber in his corner

The Irish cage fighter wants the Canadian pop star on his team. The Notorious' training methods were called into question by many ahead of his defeat last Saturday.

Conor McGregor: "I want Justin Bieber in my corner".

Dublin born UFC fighter Conor McGregor has confessed that he’d like to have Justin Bieber in his corner of the octagon. The Irishman told TMZ: "I want Justin Bieber in my corner". It seems, in a figurative sense at least, he already has the Canadian heartthrob on his team. Following McGregor’s recent defeat at the hands of Nate Diaz, the singer posted a picture of The Notorious with the comment “Still the champ”.

The controversial pop star has palled up to famous fighters before, having made up part of Floyd Mayweather’s entourage on a few occasions and sitting ringside for The Money’s bouts.
