With Conor McGregor due for an October return to the UFC, one Celtic fan has noticed a very intriguing trend in the Irishman's choice of fight dates.

Taking to Twitter in an effort to explore the theory amid a wider audience, CSCpics has come to an unusual conclusion: 'Conor McGregor is profiting off Celtic playing away to St. Johnstone.'

Not convinced? Hear him out.

Conor McGregor, Celtic & St. Johnstone - A Conspiracy Thread. 

So, going all the way back to Conor McGregor's 2015 defeat of Jose Aldo. The date? 12 December 2015.

Who cares? Well, as CSCpics points out; Celtic were playing St. Johnstone away the following day. A 3-0 win to boot.

Ok, so what, there was a load of different results that day. True, but this brings us to exhibit 'B', and the time when CSCpics begins to earn his stripes as a keen investigative journalist.

Suffering something of a shock defeat to Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor was always going to wind up in a rematch with the American fighter.


After his initial defeat in March 2016, Diaz vs McGregor II was scheduled in for mid-August of the same year, the 21st to be exact.

But what's that? Celtic are once again playing away from home that weekend. And who do they happen to be playing? St. Johnstone of course.

A 4-2 win for the Bhoys the day before McGregor redeems himself against Diaz. Don't begin to think it ends there.


Love it or hate it, McGregor's bout with Floyd 'Money' Mayweather came just over a year after that Diaz win. Taking a boxer on at his own game, McGregor wasn't ever looking likely to compete, but then again, how could he when his secret weapon had been compromised.

The day before 'The Money Fight', Celtic did play St. Johnstone, but the match took place in Glasgow this time, and it ended in a 1-1 draw.

In a bizarre insult to injury, C. McGregor (Callum, but close enough) even grabs Celtic's solitary goal. So, what next? Without a fight since that Vegas dust-up with Mayweather, McGregor finally announces his comeback against Khabib Nurmagomedov.


When is it you ask? 6 October, why?

Well, well, well, on the day of McGregor's long-awaited comeback, Celtic will be traveling to St. Johnstone.

You know what that means. Over to you Brendan.
