Conor McGregor spent the last week travelling around Liverpool causing havoc wherever he went. The UFC lightweight champion’s epic craic involved showing up at the Grand National races at Aintree shirtless and walking away with over $40,000 cash in winnings bets. From there he turned up at a random house party where grainy footage of him high up in a treehouse had people speculating about drug use.
Now we’re learning that McGregor left his Aintree hotel suite completely destroyed, and photos of the damage show the room littered in liquor bottles and nitrous oxide canisters. Nitrous, also known as whippets, giggle gas, and hippie crack, is known to cause euphoria and hallucinations for about 30 seconds after inhaling. That leads to some people going through dozens of NO2 cartridges, which is what the folks in Conor McGregor’s room seemed to have done.
Who knows if McGregor took part in the festivities (and let’s be clear: there’s no smoking gun showing the UFC fighter doing anything illicit), but he’s certainly paying for the state the room was left in. According to The Sun newspaper, Conor ended up hiring a company to go in and take care of cleaning up his party mess and the thousands of dollars worth of damage done to the room. This wouldn’t be the first time McGregor has gotten a bit crazy between fights. Photos of him smoking joints in New York after a UFC 205 press conference popped up on his social media accounts, showing he’s not too interested in hiding his hard partying ways.
There’s still no word on when a boxing superfight between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will be signed, but Conor did just promise news on his next fight would be ‘announced very soon.’ Meanwhile, UFC president Dana White told the press that he’s waiting for McGregor’s child to be born in May before the two meet in New York to lock things in. Let’s just hope a surprise USADA drug test doesn’t end up derailing anything being worked on.
