Rory McIlroy isn’t playing this week’s Wyndham Championship, but perhaps he’s getting some tips for the octagon.
McIlroy and pal Niall Horan of One Direction were among those who celebrated Conor McGregor’s UFC 202 victory over Nate Diaz at McGregor’s afterparty on Saturday at Intrigue Nightclub in Las Vegas.
McGregor beat Diaz by majority decision in what was a highly anticipated main event. It’s no surprise McIlroy — a boxing fan — was, if not at the fight as well, at the festivities afterward. He had tickets for the Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight last year but ended up watching it in the media center during the WGC Match Play.
