Conor McGregor frantically makes getaway from Merseyside pub after aunt's funeral

The UFC fighter later shared pictures of him and his family at the funeral

Conor McGregor made a very quick getaway from a pub in Liverpool after he joined family members to attend the funeral of his aunt.

The UFC fighter shared a series of photos from his trip to Liverpool on Instagram yesterday (18 July) after his aunt, Pamela, passed away last month.

Conor McGregor shared a series of photos from the funeral.

McGregor paid tribute to his late family member in the caption, writing: "Pamela McGregor. Woah," and shared pictures of himself in a suit surrounded by friends and family members.

There was nothing particularly out of the ordinary in his post, but fans were left confused when a video emerged of him just hours earlier, storming out of a pub and quickly getting into a black Land Rover.

The clip, shared on the Twitter account Around Liverpool, was filmed outside The Saddle Club in Birkenhead and showed young fans calling to the star in an attempt to get his attention.

McGregor didn't even look up, instead just jumping into the car which was swiftly driven away.

The UFC fighter was driven away from the pub after walking out.

There was nothing in the video to indicate why McGregor left so quickly, but his departure came on the same night that Merseyside Police responded to an incident at the pub.

In a statement to Mirror Fighting, the department said: "We were called to The Saddle pub in Prenton, Wirral, at 7.50pm last night, Tuesday, July 18, to reports of an altercation.

"Officers attended the pub and spoke to a number of people. Further enquiries are being carried out to establish what has taken place but at this stage no complaints have been made and nobody has been arrested."

This morning, McGregor caused even more confusion when he posted a bizarre voice note in which he impersonated a Liverpool accent.

Conor McGregor confused fans with his voice note.

In the clip, he said: "Murder, murder? Scousers on the golly. Birkenhead is McGregor's, yeah."

McGregor's voice note has since been deleted.

Fans of the fighter have been left baffled by McGregor's actions, with one person commenting on his Instagram post: "Why can’t there be a normal post by Conor? He always gotta post smth weird as hell."

The posts come as McGregor hopes to return to the ring to fight Michael Chandler after recovering from the broken leg he got during his bout against Dustin Poirier in 2021.

McGregor's manager, Audie Attar, expressed hopes to the DailyMail that the bout would go ahead in the next few months, saying: "Listen, you can't rule this year out, but we're definitely gearing up for a strong matchup with Michael Chandler."

LADbible has contacted Merseyside Police for further information on the altercation at the pub.
