Conor McGregor Puts a Massive Bet on ‘Friend’ Cristiano Ronaldo for Euro Cup 2024

Conor McGregor, the Irish mixed martial arts icon, has demonstrated his faith in fellow aging superstar Cristiano Ronaldo by placing a substantial bet on this summer’s European Championships. McGregor wagered €60,000 (approximately £50,000) on Ronaldo to claim the Golden Boot award, which would pay out €900,000 (£760,000) if the 39-year-old striker tops the scoring charts in Germany.

Despite an awkward interaction between the two during a boxing event in Saudi Arabia, Ronaldo and McGregor have forged a public friendship dating back nearly a decade. Both have earned all-world accolades in their respective disciplines, with Ronaldo winning five Ballon d’Or trophies and McGregor claiming the Featherweight and Lightweight championship belts. Their shared self-confidence and relentless pursuit of excellence have cemented their bond.

 

Can Cristiano Ronaldo Live up to Conor McGregor’s Expectations?

McGregor’s betting slip indicates that he received 14/1 odds on Ronaldo taking home the award, although those odds have narrowed since Kylian Mbappe’s facial injury. The UFC legend’s bold prediction could see him win £761,310 if Ronaldo emerges as the top goalscorer at Euro 2024.

Ronaldo almost opened his account on his first match of the 2024 Euros, as he hit the post from a header only for Jota to put the rebound home. But unfortunately, the goal was deemed offside by a very close margin.

On the other hand, uncertainty looms over Conor McGregor’s fight against Michael Chandler. McGregor had to pull out from UFC 303 due to an injury. Combat sports fans were disheartened when the news broke, but Conor McGregor assured them through a social media post that he is not suffering from something very serious and would be back soon.
