Conor McGregor is taking a break from the Octagon, but that does not mean his earning power is waning anytime soon: McGregor is hosting an exclusive interview with Ariel Helwani in Manchester in January. The evening is entitled An Experience With Conor McGregor, and it will take place on January 28th at EventCity in Manchester.
Like most of these things, pricing is tiered, so the richer you are, the closer you get to McGregor.
You can gain admission for £28, or €32, but these will get you as far as the cheap stadium seats and no further. Although the event page on Facebook promises a "stunning auction with signed bespoke McGregor memorabilia, with something for every budget".
If you've got a bit more cash to throw about, you can get a three-course dinner thrown in. These are divided into Silver and Gold packages. The added cost of the latter gives you a table in a slightly better location and, thrillingly, "Possibility for YOU to ask McGregor a question during the WORLD EXCLUSIVE interview".
All packages can be upgraded to include a photo opportunity with McGregor, but they'll set you back quite a bit. Here's what's included in the description:
- Having a professional picture taken with Conor McGregor, meet him in person, shake his hand.
- Stunning high quality frame, 22'' x 17'' with McGregor montage.
- Free digital copy so you can share online/use on social media.
- Photos developed instantly to take home and treasure forever!
And here's the cost: £250 (€288) if there is one person in the photo, and £450 (€520) if you add a second person to the same photo. Presumably, it costs McGregor a lot to shake a second hand and sling an arm over a second shoulder.
All in, if you want to head along and get a photo with McGregor, it could cost you about €1,000.
Still, the memories might be priceless?
