How do you improve the experience of watching an Irishman become world champion in one of the biggest sporting events of the year? Winning some novelty bets, that's how. Here are some of the best novelty bets that Betfair have on offer.
McGregor To Say 'We've Taken Over!' At Ring Side Interview - 6/5 - Get it here
One of McGregor's most memorable's quotes was made ringside in Dublin following his victory over Diego Brandao. Having declared himself invincible on Irish soil, he said that the Irish were "not here to take part, we're here to take over". Should he succeed in beating Aldo, it is highly likely that McGregor will revisit his mission statement.
McGregor or Aldo To Strike Opponent With Punch At Weigh In - 10/1 - Get it here
Tempers have flared outside the octagon between these two before, and following a clash of heads at the September press conference, there's considerable value to be had in expecting things to go up a notch at Friday's weigh-in.
Jose Aldo - To Retire After Fight Or In Post-Fight Interview - 14/1 - Get it here
Aldo has been fighting at the top for the best part of ten years. With McGregor the greatest threat to his dominance, it is entirely likely that the prospect of knuckling down for a return won't appeal to Aldo. 14/1 says that he calls it a day.
To Fight In Croke Park First - Void If Neither Before 2018 - McGregor - 1/5 Tyson Fury 7/2 - Get it here
Fury has spoken relatively highly of McGregor, saying that the Notorious has made him want to watch Mixed Martial Arts. Like McGregor, Fury has also spoken of his ambition to fight in Croke Park, owing to his Irish heritage. While McGregor is a red-hot favourite to beat Fury to the Croke Park lights, boxing does have a tradition of being held at Croke Park, unlike MMA. Fury, before McGregor at Croker --- there's value there.
Main Colour Of McGregor's Post Fight Interview Tie/Bow Tie - Green - 5/6 Red - 7/1 Orange - 5/1 Black - 5/1 Brown - 14/1 Blue - 3/1 Yellow - 8/1 White - 8/1 Pink - 15/2 Grey - 4/1 - Get it here
McGregor is extremely dapper, and selective with his post-fight attire. Given his patriotism, he's likely to do a green bow-tie after the fight, but don't rule out a Brazil-baiting yellow at 8/1 or a violent red at 7/1.
