Conor McGregor may have just lost to Floyd Mayweather but the 29-year-old handled the defeat with style.

The UFC star turned up to the post-fight press conference wearing a typically extravagant suit, with a whiskey in hand, and told the media that he will make a move in the Irish whiskey market.

“Notorious Irish whiskey – coming soon,” McGregor told reporters. “I’m going to take over the Irish whiskey market… and this is delicious!”

McGregor took over the mixed martial arts world in 2016 when he became the first same-time double champion in UFC history, winning the lightweight title when he was the reigning featherweight champion.

Now, the Irishman is looking to take over the business world.

This is because McGregor has already joined forces with renowned California-based tailor David August to unveil a clothing line called August McGregor.

He also has endorsement deals with Beats by Dre and Monster Energy.

The Notorious Irish whiskey deal looks like his latest venture.
