ENGLAND-. They didn’t catch Conor McGregor but they did catch Mark Nye, a 34-year-old drug dealer who posed as the Mixed Martial Arts superstar, upon being caught.
The smuggler originally from Stanwell, England, after being arrested by local police, said his name was Conor, in his attempt to impersonate the fighter due to his physical resemblance.
Nye took it very seriously, so much so that he carried a “McGregor Enterprise” business card, although it did not serve to deceive the police and save him from three years in prison.
The culprit was sentenced in Crown Court Guildford on April 9, for his crimes related to drug trafficking
Meanwhile, the real Conor McGregor is on his business, who just bought the Marble Arch Pub, in Dublin, Ireland, where in 2019 he beat a man and was fined.
