From UFC champ to business entrepreneur: how does Conor McGregor spend his millions?
From launching a whiskey brand and a fashion label to buying a US$2 million mansion and two yachts, the Irishman and MMA fighter loves to flaunt his wealth – he is one of the highest-paid athletes in the world
“The Notorious” Conor McGregor is known as one of the best mixed martial artists (MMA) in the world.
