A man claiming to be Conor McGregor was caught trying to hide a stash of cell phones and drugs. It wasn’t McGregor, and that clever ruse didn’t work out too well in the end.
An English man named Mark Nye was sentenced to three years behind bars after pleading guilty to possession of class A drugs with the intent to supply. This same 34-year-old also told police he was the famous UFC fighter.
Nye and McGregor do really resemble each other. He obviously knew this because Nye had “McGregor Enterprises” business cards in his car at the time of his arrest. The cards, proclaiming Nye had the “best drops in Surrey,” were used to market his drug-dealing.
This plan did not turn out like he thought it would. The real Conor McGregor is still preparing for his fight in July against Dustin Poinier. Meanwhile, his look-alike is going to prison.
