Conor McGregor almost unrecognisable after shaving off iconic beard

‘Who the f**k is that guy???’

Fans can’t work out whether it’s a Halloween trick or treat after seeing Conor McGregor without his iconic beard.

The UFC star fully committed to his Halloween get up this year by making the decision to go clean shaven, revealing his hairless chin in a post on Instagram.

The post shows McGregor all dressed up for a night of trick or treating with his wife Dee Devlin and children Conor Jr, Croía and Rían.

McGregor is in a matching costume with his wife as pilots, and his children are dressed as a terrifying razor-toothed Huggy Wuggy bear, adorable fluffy lion and cute light-up fairy.

In a second post, the MMA fighter revealed that he had been dressed up as Frank Abagnale from the film Catch Me If You Can.

It’s left many divided over whether the Irishman looks better or not without the facial hair.

But one thing’s for sure, he certainly looks less menacing without his maniacal beard.

One user referenced one of McGregor’s famous lines by commenting: “Who the f**k is that guy hahahah who the f**k is that.”

Another wrote: “No beard Conor makes an appearance.”

“Not the beard lol dudeee,” a third exclaimed.

Someone else said McGregor looked “hilariously funny without a beard,” comparing him to a “Disney movie train rider.”


There were some who enjoyed the new look though.

One person said it was “incredible,” whilst another said the fighter was “looking good without the drunken beard.”

Someone else went as far to say that he actually looked like a “friendly guy.”

Who knows how long McGregor will decide to lose the beard for, but he’ll probably want the intimidating “drunken beard” back ahead of his rematch with Floyd Mayweather next year.
