Rap superstar Drake turned out to support Conor McGregor on stage during the UFC 229 weigh-ins in Las Vegas last night.
Just one day before Conor faces Khabib Nurmagomedov in the Octagon, the UFC star shocked fans by walking on stage with the Canadian rapper, who was draped in an Irish flag.
Drake is in town to perform at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday and Saturday, but there’s no doubt that the pair will hook up on Saturday night to celebrate after Conor’s fight.

Drake isn’t the only celebrity supporting the Irish man in Las Vegas this weekend, as a host of major celebrities are due to attend the fight – including Chris Pratt, Matt Damon, Mel Gibson, and Elon Musk.
After taking to the stage with Drake, Conor shared a photo of them both on Instagram alongside the caption, “The 6 God and The 12 animal!”
UFC 229 takes place on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Conor’s fight is scheduled to take place at around 4am Irish time.
