If Conor McGregor can’t beat Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring, he’s certainly chasing on Money’s coattails in the business world.
Instead of going home and licking his wounds post-fight – which saw Mayweather grab victory by TKO in the tenth round – McGregor has announced his plans for a new business venture.
And so the rivalry continues:

Staying true to his roots, the Irish UFC champ is releasing his own brand of Notorious whiskey, which he sampled on the sporting world stage wearing a majestic suit at the Showtime press conference.
Notorious Irish whiskey, coming soon. I’m going to take over the Irish whiskey market – and this is delicious! Boy that whiskey tastes so good. Oh shit. Keep an eye out for it.
Conor went onto share his post-fight warm down plans, which involve chartering a fucking huge superyacht moored in Ibiza for a childhood friend’s wedding.
If his celebrations in Las Vegas were anything to go by, the bar will be fully stocked with a lot of Notorious whiskey.

The venture will stand alongside August McGregor, the athlete’s suit and tailoring fashion house.
The high-end clothing label is a collaboration between McGregor and US-based tailor David Heil, who made that tiny three-piece suit for Conor McGregor Jr.
The fight is reported to have earned McGregor an eight-figure sum.
Thank god he’s got this subsidiary income to tide him over to his next bout.
