Conor McGregor Showed Up Uninvited To Jennifer Lopez’s Birthday Party And, Of Course, Things Got Wild

The world is Conor McGregor’s oyster these days. He’s on top of the MMA world and is using that to take full advantage of all the perks that come with it.

Which mean that even when he isn’t invited to a swanky, super-exclusive event like Jennifer Lopez’s birthday party he just goes ahead and shows up there anyway.

Speaking to Paul Kimmage of The Irish Independent, McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh tells the story of how McGregor got into the party and the events that transpired once he did.

Paul Kimmage: OK, and this is what’s confusing me, because it’s obvious from the video that Conor hasn’t been invited to this party.

John Kavanagh: Correct.

PK: He doesn’t know J-Lo?

JK: Correct.

PK: So how do you end up at the party?

JK: That’s just cheeky Conor, a throwback to his youth. He just says: “Ah sure I’ll come along.” And Ronaldo goes: “Ehh…OK.”

PK: (Laughs) Really?

JK: Yeah and we’re all there thinking: ‘How can Ronaldo invite us to this gig? Who’s going to be there?’ Even in the car as we’re driving in: ‘Wait! This a terrible mistake. We’re going to walk in here and be thrown out by some security guard!’

PK: And were you?

JK: We go in and J-Lo catches his eye and comes running over like a schoolgirl: “Oh! Conor McGregor! Thank you for coming. Let’s dance!” She drags him to the dancefloor and they start dancing and I’m like: ‘Oh, here we go, just another crazy story.’ Ronaldo is there. He comes over, tells me that he reads everything (I write) and follows me on Instagram. I’m thinking: ‘Wait until I tell my dad about this!’

PK: (Laughs)

JK: He kept coming over, and then he would drift away, and then I’d be in another part (of the room) and he’d come over again. (Laughs.) And it got to the stage where Orlagh was like: “Here’s this sports megastar harassing you!”

PK: He had you in a headlock.

JK: Yeah, it was like a drunk party: “I’ll tell you this.” But it was very enjoyable. We spoke about training regimes and the psychological aspects of competition and after a while I started to realise: ‘This guy is just like Conor.’ Just a one-track mind, no interest in anything else. Civilians would call them obsessed or say there was something wrong with them, but you can’t get to that level unless you have that personality.

Conor McGregor, ladies and gentlemen!
