Conor McGregor’s mum hugs Snoop Dogg as rap legend visits UFC star’s Dublin pub

Conor McGregor's mum got to meet Snoop Dogg when the rap icon visited her son's pub in Dublin on Sunday.

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, is currently in Ireland ahead of a gig in the capital on Monday evening. The 51-year-old dropped into the McGregor-owned Black Forge Inn for a bite to eat, and was given a hearty welcome by locals.

McGregor, who is scheduled to return to UFC next year, uploaded a couple of snaps of his mum and Snoop together, captioning the post: "Snoop with my mom, happy as hell hahah. Welcome to @theblackforgeinn, Snoop! Good luck with the sold out show tomorrow night."

The California-native cut an expectedly laid-back figure as he strolled into the pub in an all-black hoody and trousers combo, wearing a pair of sunglasses and some headphones. Later, he tucked into some food before ending the visit by posing for some photos, including one wearing a replica of McGregor's old UFC title belt.

His appearance suggests that he and the Irish fighter have mended fences after Snoop Dogg labelled McGregor a "little b***h" after his exhibition defeat to Floyd Mayweather in 2017. The American is one of several high-profile 'East Coast' rappers to have initially found fame during the hip hop boom of the early 90s and has sold over 35million albums worldwide.

McGregor, meanwhile, hasn't fought since breaking his leg in his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier in July 2021. He was initially scheduled to get back in the Octagon in December this year, but UFC head honcho Dana White recently confirmed that his return has been pushed back to 2024.
