Conor McGregor may have Justin Bieber walk out with him to the Octagon

Nate Diaz isn't a big fan of Justin Bieber and the platinum-selling artist feels the same about Diaz. So Bieber has thrown his support behind Conor McGregor, who is working his way back from his upset loss to the Diaz earlier this month.

TMZ Sports ran into McGregor and asked him if he knew he was being backed by Bieber.

"Yeah I did hear about that," McGregor said. "That's brilliant. It's brilliant to have the support of people. I look forward to coming back with a vengeance."

So McGregor is down with Bieber but would he ever have him come out to the Octagon with him before a match?

"Yeah sure. Why not?" McGregor said.

OK, not exactly a ringing endorsement, but Conor's saying there's a chance. We read ya.
