Conor McGregor Received Warning for Placing His Arm Over Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In a recent unexpected interaction, Irish professional mixed martial artist Conor McGregor has received a formal warning for placing his arm over Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The incident occurred during an event in Moscow where both celebrities were present.
McGregor’s seemingly friendly gesture was deemed inappropriate by Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov and described as “a breach of protocol.
McGregor, known for his flamboyant attitude inside and outside the ring, had posted photos of himself and Putin on social media.

This action sparked controversy and led to a stern warning from Russian officials.
The details about any potential consequences or actions that might be taken against McGregor remain unclear.
