If Conor McGregor is preparing for a fight against Floyd Mayweather, it sure doesn’t look like it. The 2 belt UFC champ has been seen partying all over Liverpool in recent days and doing things his way. That means Conor is doing whatever he wants, how he wants and on what he wants. Now it seems the most famous athlete from Ireland could face a potential lawsuit from a luxury vehicle rental firm.
The problems all started when Conor posted a crazy photo on Instagram partying on top of a new Rolls Royce Wraith. That wouldn’t be an issue except for the fact that it was a rental and not owned by the UFC star. That rare Rolls is valued at $240,000 pounds and Conor jumped on the hood like it was a used Hyundai Accent. This infuriated the rental company. A rep stated. “He stood on the Rolls and acted like he owned it. It’s not owned by Conor and we are going to take all the deposit back.”
The son of the rental car company, Aleem Iqbal also weighed in. He stated, “When you own it Conor then you can stand on it like Mayweather.” It seems the rental firm is super irate, but hey, they are getting a lot of free publicity from McGregor. With a reported near $20 million in earnings in 2016 and a massive paycheck coming from a match-up with Floyd Mayweather, I don’t think conor McGregor is worried about losing the deposit money.
Conor McGregor will not be allowed to use Platinum Executive rental servies again, but I don’t think Conor is worried about that. He has enough money to but any car anywhere he travels in the world. Platinum Services is now considering suing Conor for damages done to the Rolls Royce.
