With the announcement of his supposed retirement, the gear used by Conor McGregor during UFC 246 is going to auction. In partnership with Fanatics Authentic, you can now bid on the very gloves, shorts, and Irish flag worn by McGregor himself in the event where he spectacularly triumphed over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.
“This auction commemorates the last time I set foot in the octagon, so don’t miss out! The auction is live now.”
The signed pair of fight worn gloves and wraps were initially set to a minimum bid of US$2,500 – the current bid sits at US$31,000. The signed pair of fight worn shorts was also initially set to a minimum bid of US$2,500 – the current bid sits at US$21,000. And as for the flag, although it too was touched/signed by McGregor, the minimum bid was only initially set to US$1,000 with the current bid having increased to just US$2,500.
