Fans praise Conor McGregor for further teasing a potential run as the president of Ireland. 

Over the past month, McGregor has been vocal about his displeasure with Ireland’s government. ‘The Notorious’ refused to back down despite reportedly being investigated by Irish officials for “hate speech.”

Earlier this week, the former two-division UFC champion doubled down on his anti-government social media posts by showing interest in running for president.

McGregor followed up by calling out several other upcoming presidential candidates with this message on Twitter:

“Potential competition if I run. Gerry, 78. Bertie. 75. Enda, 74. Each with unbreakable ties to their individual parties politics. Regardless of what the public outside of their parties feel. These parties govern themselves vs govern the people. Or me, 35. Young, active, passionate, fresh skin in the game. I listen. I support. I adapt.”

McGregor continued: 

“I have no affiliation/bias/favoritism toward any party. They would genuinely be held to account regarding the current sway of public feeling. I’d even put it all to vote. There’d be votes every week to make sure. I can fund. It would not be me in power as President, people of Ireland. It would be me and you.”

In the comment section of the previously mentioned Twitter post, fans supported McGregor’s political aspirations:

“Only you can save Ireland.”

“Conor, Ireland needs you.”

“You’re biased to Ireland which is what every country leadership needs biased to their own citizens.”

“Do it bring Ireland back”

“if you run, you get elected 100%   irish politics is super weak atm and you are a giga star”

“They’re too old, too weak, too soft to lead Ireland. Conor, you are the answer!”

“A man of the people, by the people! Ireland has a choice, Tyranny or Freedom. The choice is theirs to make, but the world calls for Conor!”

In mid-2024, the extended process of determining Ireland’s next political leaders will begin.

For now, Conor McGregor is focused on returning to the Octagon, which is expected to take place in early 2024. Dana White has confirmed McGregor will most likely face fellow UFC superstar Michael Chandler.
