UFC Irishman Conor McGregor arrives in Ukraine
Before answering journalists’ questions, the Irishman tried the loaf and also left his autograph.
“I am very happy to be in Ukraine. The first thing I noticed was a large number of boards at the airport and around the city with me. It’s really nice and motivating. Ukrainian sport, in particular, boxing – is a global phenomenon. Lomachenko, Usik, and others are real stars and professionals,” McGregor said.
I love meatballs in Kyiv. My girlfriend cooks them for me,” McGregor said, as quoted by Tribuna.com.
I know Shakhtar because they play in the Champions League against Manchester City and other teams. I’ve never seen them play, but we’ll come up with something to fix it,” the Irishman said.
