World champion Conor McGregor is coming home to Dublin next week to meet loyal fans for an exclusive two-night event in Dublin.

With under two months to go before his eagerly-awaited fight with Jose Aldo in Las Vegas, the Notorious will take time out to take part in  The Takeover Q&A: Powered by Reebok with fans at the Wright Venue in Swords next Monday and Tuesday.

McGregor will also be joined by his SBG team-mates Gunnar Nelson, Cathal Pendred, Artem Lobov and coach John Kavanagh.

It will be McGregor’s first public appearance in his native Dublin since he beat Chad Mendes to win the interim featherweight belt in Las Vegas back in July.

The Takeover Q&A: Powered by Reebok, in association and the Wright Venue, is guaranteed to sell out fast with 1,800 tickets available for each night.

The event will consist of a panel discussion moderated by Hector in addition to fan questions from the audience directed at their favourite sporting stars.  This is a ticket only event and there will be a limited number of VIP tickets available, giving fans the chance to meet the SBG team.

And if you can’t make the night, we at are giving our readers a chance to submit their questions for McGregor and the SBG team via Twitter (@IndoSport) and Facebook (IndependentSport).
