Conor McGregor wants to have Justin Bieber in his corner

It seems like the Beebs and combat sports would not go together as often as they do. Yet when we’re not paying close attention, we see Justin Bieber mingling with the top figures in various sports.

First he was a part of Floyd Mayweather’s entourage, and now it seems he’s trying to earn entry into Conor McGregor’s posse.

After Nate Diaz expressed his ill-feelings towards the Canadian pop star, Bieber threw his lot in with Conor McGregor for Diaz and McGregor’s eventual rematch. Upon hearing the news, it looks like McGregor is also a Beliber.

TMZ Sports asked McGregor if he knew he was being backed by Bieber.

“Yeah I did hear about that,” McGregor said. “That’s brilliant. It’s brilliant to have the support of people. I look forward to coming back with a vengeance.”
