McGregor, 35, has enjoyed the fruits of his labour during his injury-enforced octagon hiatus and had many a tipple of his Proper No.12 Whiskey and Forged Irish Stout.

And he enjoyed a few drinks last weekend, just NINE weeks before his comeback clash with fellow fan favourite Michael Chandler.

The Notorious was seen drinking some of his Forged Stout at a launch party at the Nanny’s of Duleek in County Meath.

According to Bloody Elbow, McGregor didn’t overindulge on the dark stuff as he’d taken part in a hard day of training with his sparring partners.

His keeping a lid on things, however, didn’t stop him from making sure the paying punters got their fill of Forged Stout.

McGregor shared footage of the night with his 47 million Instagram followers, some of whom were quick to express their concerns.

One commented: “Nine weeks out from his first fight in just under three years.”

Another said: “The odds of having him as favourites are crazy. [Put the] house on Chandler.”


And another said: “Do you remember when he took fighting seriously?”

One remarked: “He’s going to get hurt against Chandler! Is there nobody but yes men in his camp telling him this is still 2015?”

Another chimed in: “Yeah, now I’m really worried about his next fight.”

One commented on the video saying: “Too many distractions, TBh. I’m worried about June 29.”

Former two-division champion McGregor has imposed a booze ban on himself now that he has just over eight weeks until his octagon return.

He wrote on Instagram earlier this month: “My brother Justin Bieber, the Mac has your back for life!

“From Beverly Hills to the Bahamas! See you in Vegas bro, it’s game on, the Mac is back!

“Five more nights on the delicious and then that be that see ya’s tonight I’M NOT F***NG LEAVING.”

McGregor hasn’t set foot inside the octagon since breaking his left leg in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier nearly three years ago.

Inside McGregor’s Notorious lifestyle

With more sides to his personality than an Octagon, Conor McGregor’s rise has been an enthralling watch.

Going from UFC icon to entrepreneur and Hollywood star, the Irishman has transcended the sport he helped bring to the masses.

He has four children with fiancee Dee Devlin and the family enjoy a lavish lifestyle.

McGregor has not fought in UFC since breaking his leg in a trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier in 2021.

That has not stopped him amassing a net worth of over £150m thanks to his Proper No Twelve whiskey and fashion line.

And he is due to return to the Octagon at UFC 303 in an eagerly-awaited headline clash with Michael Chandler.

McGregor also starred alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the Amazon Prime remake of classic movie Road House, although he is dreading his mum seeing one X-rated scene.

Notorious turned up to the premiere in a £60,000 suit that was outdone by his £460k watch.

The only thing sharper than his fashion sense is his tongue and the Dubliner has several bitter spats under his belt, including with UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov.

That row led to one of his biggest controversies in 2018 as he travelled 3,000 miles to confront Khabib in a vicious attack on his bus.

He pleaded guilty to assault after punching a man in a pub in 2018 and had his £150k Bentley seized by police for driving offences four years later.

Joe Rogan lashed out at McGregor in a four-letter outburst and the Irishman has also fired shots at Jake Paul, KSI and Tommy Fury.

Boxing great Floyd Mayweather also has McGregor on his enemy list after the pair clashed in a cross-sport bout in 2017.

And he plans to get back into the win column by with a viral head-kick KO of Chandler.

The UFC’s first simultaneous two-weight world champion recently told James Corden: “I am Terminator now.

“I have a titanium rod that goes into the knee and down to the bone, right down to my ankle.

“It’s unbreakable.

“I wish for and I will work for landing this kick with this steel bar in my leg against an opponent and getting them out of there.”

He added: “I want to see a picture of myself in the octagon with my leg broken.

“And then I want to see a picture of myself in the octagon with my leg wrapped around my opponent’s neck or head and putting him out and side by side.”
