The UFC superstar took to Instagram to address his loss to Dustin Poirier, but instead of giving any excuses for his poor performance, she reminded everyone he is one of the richest fighters in the world.
In the photos, Conor is back in his expensive suit, lounging on a couch on the monster boat, and speaking to his fans as he sails away from the arena.
Take A Look…
“Thanks for the support everyone! Was not my night/morning in there but a great contest to improve on. I’m excited at the blockbuster trilogy I now have on my hands. Dustin is a hell of a competitor and I look forward to going again. Elevating the leg and the spirit on my way home! God bless us all, happy Sunday ❤️,” Conor captioned the picture.
But, the point is clear. I have a mega-yacht and you don’t. If you didn’t see the bout, Conor came out punching and by all accounts won the fight round of the mixed martial arts fight — but into the second round, McGregor got hammered with a few punches, and down he tumbled.
Now, back to the boat…
In the days leading up to the fight, Conor began sharing pictures from a huge boat, which he appeared to be staying on leading up to the event. The fight, which took place at Etihad Stadium in Abu Dhabi, was moved based on the outbreak of COVID-19.
Following the defeat, McGregor wasn’t even trying to hide the fact that he was heading back to his yacht, and not everyone is paid the millions he was for this fight.
“My leg is completely dead. It was badly compromised, It is what it is … Dustin fought a hell of a fight,” he said in the press conference following the fight.
Adding, “It’ll be rough days but I’ll enjoy my kids, have fun. It’s morning here, I’ll have my ‘Proper’ Irish coffee, have me pancakes, go back to the yacht. There’s a lot of good in my life. I’ll be smiling … and that’s it.”
As for retirement, he said, “I’ll certainly regroup, pick myself back up, and go again.”
President of UFC, Dana White, addressed the situation speaking about the luxurious lifestyle Conor is living and if it affects his fighting. “He’s got the money. I mean, when you think about it, I’m a huge ‘Rocky’ fan, this is like ‘Rocky 3.’ When you get off a 310-foot yacht, living that good life, it’s tough to be a savage when you’re living like he lives and has the money that he has,” he said.
Adding, “He’s got everything he ever wanted. So I don’t know. It goes this way or that way.”
We will see, but for now…pancakes on the yacht!
