UFC star Conor McGregor has spent as much time in Las Vegas as anywhere else in the United States.
The Dublin, Ireland native might not have a family history rooted in Las Vegas, but he’s made a fortune and entertained thousands in a number of events in the city.
It’s easy to understand why the vicious attack against those at Mandalay Bay would would have a personal impact on him.
On Monday, the lightweight champion posted a photo of the city on his Instagram page and issued a message of condolence to those caught in the crossfire.
The total number of deaths has reached 58, with more than 500 people being injured in varying degrees of severity. Nearby hospitals are at capacity as they attempt to address the massive influx of people who are in need of medical care.
The shooting has sparked a nationwide debate about gun control in the United States.
Regrettably, shootings in the US continue to be more commonplace than anywhere else in the world.
