Looks like Conor McGregor might be enjoying that Floyd Mayweather paycheck a little too much. Not entirely sure what’s happening in this video, but it ain’t good…
During an unprecedented clash on August 26, Conor McGregor did what no MMA star had before. Taking on arguably the greatest boxer of our generation, McGregor went up against Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring.
Truly one of the most bizarre yet fascinating rivalries ever, the bout itself could never live up to the hype. Once they laced up the gloves and stepped into the ring, it was all Mayweather as he outclassed McGregor.
For all his brash trash talk and outlandish predictions, McGregor could do little but make it ten rounds. Of course, he landed more than any of Mayweather’s recent opponents. Although that’s an achievement in itself, it was because Mayweather abandoned his defensive style.
When all was said and done, McGregor earned some respect and a large sum in his bank account.
$100 Million Plus Pay-Per-View Points
Although the fight failed to break the domestic PPV record, 4.4 million buys isn’t bad. That’s just 200K buys off the Mayweathe vs. Pacquiao figure, and means McGregor and Mayweather banked a boatload more cash on top of their already bulky salaries.
How is McGregor spending hi cut? Well, he’s, of course, living the lavish lifestyle of a young multi-millionaire. Unfortunately, that’s not always a good thing, as you’ll see from the following clip.
McGregor appears to be very wasted, and close to hitting a random fan, again, as he is being filmed in the night club:
WTF Was That All About?
Thankfully it didn’t go too far, but it really could have. Perhaps bringing out his own brand of whiskey has led to a few too many tipples, and God knows what else.
Back to the sporting side of things, and McGregor reveals he has many plans ahead. With Kevin Lee and Tony Ferguson competing for the junior title, it looks like, again, McGregor has a wide range of choices to make:
“Look, I’ve got the UFC title to defend and that means something to me. I will defend that world title. Nathan is there. He’s trying to come in here and make all of these demands. If he starts pricing himself out of an event, I probably will defend against the person who wins this interim belt…or someone along that line to legitimize it again.”
“I’ve already gone from the highest of the high in terms of a money fight. Now the question I always get is about defending the belt and legitimizing the sport and the rankings. Maybe now it would be a good time for me to go and do that and shut that side up.” said Conor McGregor to the media.”
