Conor McGregor’s Insane Cristiano Ronaldo Bet Could Land Him $1.3 Million

UFC icon Conor McGregor has placed an insane bet for EURO 2024, staking that Cristiano Ronaldo would win a second-successive Golden Boot at this year’s European Championship.

UFC fans will be forgiven for wondering if they’ll ever see the Notorious back in the Octagon as the former Featherweight and Lightweight Champion is seemingly enjoying the good life away from the sport, starring in Hollywood blockbusters and partying with strangers during his fight-prep.

But the Irish fighter has still kept one keen eye on the competition and, known for placing insane bets across many sports, has backed one of football’s greatest-ever players to perform in what could be his final appearance at the elite European competition.

Despite reaching a significant milestone with his 40th birthday, Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo is certainly showing no signs of slowing down, thanks mainly to his enviable dedication to his peak performance.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward has continued to score for fun since moving to the Saudi Pro League (as he has done throughout his career) and has linked back up with his national side for his 11th major tournament and record 6th European Championship.

Taking to socials, Conor McGregor revealed that he had placed a huge 60,000 bet for the Portuguese captain to score the most goals in the competition and walk away with yet another Golden Boot. Assuming McGregor’s working in US Dollars, the potential stake is $90,000 AUD and at 14/1, could be worth up to $1.3 million AUD.

Ronaldo started in Portugal’s nervy 2-1 win over Czechia today, and although he failed to score, the Portuguese captain led the line and ensured his side started the tournament with the crucial three points – there’ll be plenty more football for McGregor’s bet to come good.
