CONOR McGregor's first scheduled public appearance in Dublin since becoming the undisputed UFC lightweight champion has been cancelled.

Full refunds will be provided for the €104-a-head event, which was due to go ahead this Friday.

The Notorious attended a similar night in Manchester last month, in which the fighter charged fans upwards of €300 to get their picture taken with him.

A statement from the Red Cow Moran Hotel confirmed that the event was off due to an unforeseen schedule clash with McGregor in Las Vegas this Friday.

"The Red Cow Moran Hotel in association with Industry Entertainment regret to announce that the evening event with Conor McGregor scheduled for Friday 17th February has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond their control. An unavoidable schedule change will see Conor McGregor in Las Vegas at the time of the event," the statement read.

"All ticket holders who purchased tickets via TicketStop.ie will be automatically refunded, if you purchased a ticket or booked a table for the event through the Red Cow Moran Hotel please contact the team on 01 4593650 or via email redcowinn@moranhotels.com  who will manage your refund directly.

"The Red Cow Moran Hotel in association with Industry Entertainment would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope that a new date for this special evening will be set in the not too distant future.

"If you require any further information, please contact redcowsales@moranhotels.com or visit www.redcowmoranhotel.com/conor-mcgregor."
