NFL legend Tom Brady may be among the famous faces in the audience when Conor McGregor returns to the octagon to face Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC 246.
Brady is part of a group of fellow celebrities and athletes who are part of the UFC’s ownership team after the organisation was sold to WME-IMG in 2016 for a whopping $4bn.
The 42-year-old has previously been seen at the historic UFC 200 event and, according to the company’s president Dana White , Brady is hoping to make it to the T-Mobile Arena for McGregor vs Cowboy.
Speaking to TMZ, White said: “Tom might be coming to the fight this weekend.

“Yeah, he might be coming to the McGregor fight this weekend. I’m going back-and-forth with him right now on scheduling stuff.”
The event may prove to be a welcome break for Brady, who has been the subject of intense speculation after his New York Patriots were eliminated from the play-offs by the Tennessee Titans 20-13 during Wild Card Weekend.

It had been rumoured that Brady would retire at the end of the season but he has been adamant he wants to play again next year, prompting speculation he could leave the Patriots after 19 seasons .
When asked to weigh in on the situation, White added: “My own personal opinion, it’s going to depend on whether the Patriots put the money up for him or not, but I think there’s obviously a lot of opportunities for him to go out, have some fun, have a little bit more control, make a lot of money.
