The stars are lining up to throw their support behind Conor McGregor ahead of the big fight

He might be the underdog, but he’s certainly not lacking support.

After a build-up which seems to have gone on forever, Conor McGregor is only moments away from stepping into the ring in an attempt to cause one of the biggest upsets in sporting history.

Though the odds are stacked in the favour of his opponent – it’s his sport, he’s never been defeated and McGregor hasn’t had a boxing match in years – there is a huge amount of goodwill towards the Notorious amongst the general public and plenty of encouragement for him to pull off what would be the unlikeliest of victories.

As the fight draws closer and closer, some massive names from the world of sport and entertainment have taken to Twitter to express their support for McGregor, who’s going to need plenty of it in the T-Mobile Arena if he’s going to do the business.
