Conor McGregor’s behaviour worries fans at 2023 Monaco GP

Conor McGregor is due to fight Michael Chandler in December, potentially in Las Vegas.

Last weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix was as per usual a star-studded event, with several A-list celebrities having made the trip to the Circuit de Monaco for the iconic race.

One celebrity who was quickly spotted was UFC fighter Conor McGregor, who was seen on his yacht in the famous Monaco harbour.

Despite having an upcoming fight in December against Michael Chandler, the Irishman’s behaviour was a concern for some fans, who questioned why he wasn’t preparing for the bout.

Others were quick to note that the fan favourite has several months to prepare for the fight, and that he probably isn’t even in training camp yet.

McGregor was seen in Monaco wolfing down pancakes along with some fruit, a bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee, before behaving erratically later in the day.

The fighter was seen dancing whilst surrounded by his security team and behaving questionably, with many having quickly admitted that McGregor had seen better days.

When the action got underway, McGregor watched on as reigning World Champion Max Verstappen claimed his fourth win of the 2023 season, to extend his lead in the Drivers’ Championship to a comfortable 39 points.

Verstappen’s lead grew considerably after team-mate Sergio Perez endured a weekend to forget, with the Mexican having not recovered from crashing in Q1.

After starting the iconic race from last, Perez could only salvage 16th on Sunday, following an eventful race.

Joining Verstappen on the podium at the Principality was fellow two-time World Champion Fernando Alonso, who secured his best result of the year after finishing second.

The final step on the podium went to Alpine’s Esteban Ocon, who secured his third career podium and the Enstone-based team’s first since Alonso claimed a rostrum for them at the 2021 Qatar Grand Prix.

Behind Ocon was Lewis Hamilton in fourth with George Russell in fifth; however, Russell would’ve finished third had he not locked-up at Mirabeau in the closing stages of the race.

Sixth went to home hero Charles Leclerc whilst Pierre Gasly claimed seventh, ahead of Carlos Sainz who finished eighth.

McLaren duo Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri completed the top 10.
