Conor McGregor is set to enjoy another huge cash windfall, with tickets to watch him appear on stage in Manchester and have a photo with the UFC champion selling for almost €1000.

McGregor will take part in a black tie evening at Event City in Manchester on January 28th that will include on on-stage interview and he has been promoting the event on his social media channels in a bid to boost sales.

While ticket priced at €28 to attend the show are still on sale, it is the packages that open the door to a one-on-one meeting with the Dubliner that have been snapped up quickly.

Anyone who wished to share a few minutes with ‘The Notorious’ needed to spend at least €140 to secure a dinner table seat and then they were offered a chance to have a professional photograph taken for an additional €285 or €511 if you wanted two people in the image.

All packages that include a photo with McGregor have now been sold, with the huge appearance fee McGregor is commanding for this event likely to have been covered by those bookings alone.

McGregor is the latest in a long line of A-list stars to take part in the ‘An Experience With’ event, which has also attracted appearances from Hollywood greats Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and boxing icons Mike Tyson and Sugar Ray Leonard in recent years.

Meanwhile, rumours persist suggesting McGregor will step into a boxing ring to take on undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather at some point in 2017, with the Irishman’s eagerness to boost his already healthy bank balance showing no sign of waning.
