Odds On Conor McGregor Going On 'I'm A Celebrity' Slashed
Conor McGregor's recent social media activity has a lot of people thinking he'll be appearing on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here, and the odds have fallen.
The UFC superstar is waiting to find out who is next opponent in the octagon will be but he could have an opponent Down Under later this year, if the betting is to be believed.
McGregor's Instagram story showed him eating bees the other day and in turn fans have rushed to place bets on him joining 'I'm a Celebrity' and odds have fallen from 200/1 to 50/1.
Speaking to Goss.ie, BoyleSports spokesperson Sarah Kinsella said, "Conor McGregor could he heading Down Under if the latest betting is anything to go by.
"The UFC star is 50/1 from 200/1 to take part in I'm A Celebrity following his video he uploaded eating dead bees."
However, even at his new odds, the Irishman is far from the favourite when it comes to sports stars heading into the jungle with former boxer Ricky Hatton and ex Arsenal forward Paul Merson both at 1/3.
Frenchman Eric Cantona is 11/4 in the betting, controversial snooker star Ronnie O'Sullivan is 8/1 and footballers Ray Parlour and Ally McCoist are 9/1 and 10/1 respectively.
