UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor teases a lot of things on social media, but often times, the tease becomes reality. But would McGregor actually consider a run for political office in Ireland?
McGregor has teased the idea before, and Ireland’s current Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar, wouldn’t count him out.
More recently, TMZ caught up with Varadkar at the SXSW conferences and festivals in Austin, Texas, and flung a question at him, asking if he could ever imagine McGregor pursuing a career in politics?
“You never know, stranger things have happened,” said Varadkar. “I just met Arnold Schwarzenegger… He was awesome as an actor, career in politics after, and he was a good governor, so anything is possible.”
