If you happened to love Conor McGregor's latest launching of the words 'weasel' 'bum' and the phrase 'you'll do nutin', then we have some great news: he is going to do it at least five more times!
McGregor, whose interest in the UFC wavered in the last two years amid the gleam of gold that came from a four-sided ring and Floyd Mayweather, has now committed himself to another six fights.
The fight includes October's meeting with Khabib Nurmagomedov, along with five fights beyond that. The value of the deal has not been disclosed, but Dana White did admit that it will likely make him the sport's richest-ever athlete. McGregor has also cut a deal for his whiskey brand to sponsor each of his fights in the UFC. Its branding is expected to be plastered over the octagon against Khabib.
McGregor has fought 11 times in the UFC, with his record standing at 10-1-0. His professional boxing record reads 0-1-0.
McGregor and Nurmagomedov appeared on stage last night at an eerie, fan-absent press conference, a report of which is available here.
