Conor McGregor lookalike was imprisoned

Briton Mark Nye, who posed as a mixed martial artist (MMA) Conor McGregor, received two years and nine months in prison for drug trafficking. This is reported by the Daily Mail.

In February of this year, police stopped the car of 34-year-old Nye, who did not have insurance and a driver’s license.

The man introduced himself as an Irish athlete and showed a business card with the name Conor McGregor. However, on the back of it was an advertisement for the services of a drug dealer.

After that, police officers searched Nye’s car, in which they found prohibited substances. In addition, hundreds of messages were found in his phone, proving the British man’s involvement in drug trafficking.

Conor McGregor is a former UFC champion in two weight classes. The Irish athlete spent 27 fights in MMA, in which he won 22 victories and suffered five defeats.
