Pictured: Conor McGregor disregards dress code when turning up at Grand National race meeting

WBN 08/04/2017

UFC star Conor McGregor made a sensational entrance to Liverpool’s famous race meeting on Saturday to take in the Grand National horse race.

The Irishman, who is set to face Floyd Mayweather in a cross-codes bout later this year, took no notice of the smart dress code at the Aintree course as he flaunted his chest in an open shirt.

‘One of Arthur’ claimed the top honor in the 5.15pm (UK time) 40-horse steeplechase as the 14-1 shot romped home to the delight of the crowd.

McGregor is set to earn a massive payday if he can work out a deal with his employer Dana White to sign off on a multi-million dollar contest opposite the former pound for pound king.

Mayweather had wanted to face McGregor on June 10, although hold-ups with Nevada State Athletic Commission and the UFC had threatened to scupper the bout. 

A date in September is now being looked at by both parties representing Mayweather and McGregor, who stand to make upwards of nine-figures should they finally be able to sign on the dotted line to go head-to-head.

Full result from Aintree:

1st One For Arthur 14/1

2nd Cause Of Causes 16/1

3rd Saint Are 25/1

4th Blaklion 8/1F

5th Gas Line Boy 50/1
