TBS's CONAN Welcomes Conor McGregor For His Only Live Late Night Appearance Wednesday August 16

TBS’s CONAN will welcome UFC great Conor McGregor on Wednesday, August 16 prior to his Las Vegas super fight with Floyd Mayweather on August 26. This will mark McGregor's only live late night appearance before the fight. This marks the return of McGregor to the forum where he first publicly announced his desire to fight Floyd Mayweather over two years ago.

On July 2, 2015 McGregor told O'Brien, "I most certainly would step into his world, I would certainly box him if the opportunity arose."

O’Brien recently did a week of shows from San Diego during Comic-Con® International and in November will return for a week of shows from the famous Apollo Theater in New York. In previous years, O'Brien has done special shows from New York, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta.

CONAN airs Monday-Thursday at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. The show is produced by Conaco LLC, with Jeff Ross serving as executive producer.
