‘I must have taken 10 million pictures and autographs’ – McGregor apologises to disgruntled fans

The UFC interim featherweight champion has cancelled the final charity Q&A event.

CONOR MCGREGOR HAS been forced to apologise after fans were left disappointed at an event in Dublin last night.

The UFC fighter, who faces Jose Aldo for the featherweight title on 12 December, has been appearing at a number of events around the country over the past four nights, with €50,000 of the proceeds going to charity.

The Wright Venue in Swords hosted the first of two events last night, and McGregor was joined by coach John Kavanagh and team-mates Gunnar Nelson, Cathal Pendred and Artem Lobov for a Q&A session.

However, those who bought tickets (€25 for general admission, €35 for VIP) were angered when McGregor left before they had the chance to get photographs and autographs.

Many have taken to Twitter express their disgust:

This morning, the organisers have said they will offer refunds, while McGregor has apologised via his Facebook page — claiming that there was a “miscommunication” about what the event was:

The final leg, which was scheduled for tonight, has also been postponed until after his title fight in December.
