UFC superstar Conor McGregor has hired a security team after receiving death threats.

The Irish-born fighter arrived at the VIP Style Awards in Dublin with his security for what appears to be their first public appearance.

“He told people their names were Rocky and Drago and that he’d hired them because of death threats,” according to a source speaking to The Irish Sun(RELATED: UFC Star Conor McGregor SHOCKS The Sports World With Retirement)

Details about the threat haven’t been publicly released yet, but according to The Irish Sun, the threat doesn’t have anything to do with a previous threat involving an AK-47 on Twitter. (SLIDESHOW: This Gorgeous Olympian Loves To Show Off Lots Of Skin)
