Conor McGregor continues to tease the prospect of buying Chelsea after Roman Abramovich confirmed his decision to sell the club.
The Russian billionaire, who is selling out the west side of London after nearly 19 years of unprecedented success, won 18 major trophies during his tenure to become the undisputed world champion.
Speaking of undisputed world champions, McGregor threw his hat into the ring – or should we say octagon – as some of the world’s wealthiest people fight for the chance to pick up where Abramovich left off.
The former two-time Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight and lightweight champion first expressed interest in buying the club via Twitter.
McGregor then doubled down on his ambition to buy Chelsea hours later by sharing a video on social media.
The Irishman’s clip, reportedly dropped from the eFootball franchise, depicts him as Blues boss; in the game, you can customize your player’s appearance and the 33-year-old has made himself a character with his iconic beard.
UFC press conferences
Chelsea’s post and pre-match press conferences would never be the same; not only would it be an absolute gold mine for content, but the mayhem and mayhem would be second to none.
Conferences would take place in the evenings at the home team’s stadium, opening the doors for supporters to come and ask questions.
There would be pre-game confrontations between managers, players and owners, heated discussions, bodyguards, overturned tables, thrown water bottles.
You name it. Late arrivals, entrance music, sardonic songs from the crowd, and managers slamming their trophies – or should we say belts – on the table.
Dana White becomes director of football
If McGregor were to become owners of Chelsea, then Dana White would almost certainly become the west London side’s new director of football.
The UFC president would not only sign the best fighters, but he would also take a keen interest in recruiting the next generation of talent.
Chelsea would become the home of British football – the end game – for players, much like the UFC to the martial arts scene.
Just imagine the new UFC Premier League press conferences with White and McGregor sitting at a table with Antonio Rudiger – now say Chelsea wouldn’t be halfway to winning before a ball was kicked!
Rudiger would be made captain, a leader of men, always ready to fight, a merchant to come back to, but above all, one of the best defenders in the world.
Now, if we hadn’t mentioned the Germany international’s name, McGregor would have been valid profiling.
The 29-year-old centre-half would lead Chelsea to war, no doubt, on land or sea, leading the fight against the opposition under all circumstances.

Chelsea beer sponsor stripped
Sorry Singha, but if McGregor were to take ownership of Chelsea, the club’s new alcohol sponsor would naturally become the Irishman’s own whiskey brand, Proper No. Twelve.
There would be no more beer served at Stamford Bridge, only whiskey and maybe Guinness in spades.
