PARTY TIME! See Conor McGregor cut loose at his after party!
This weekend’s UFC 246 was a monumental one, as it saw the triumphant return of Irish superstar Conor McGregor. The event saw McGregor finish fan favourite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone via strikes in just 40 seconds. McGregor used an array of strikes and kicks, as well as some well-placed shoulder strikes in the clinch to secure victory. After the event and subsequent press conference McGregor headed off for a well earned after party at the Wynn Casino and Resort.

MMA Junkies Mike Bohn was on site at the official McGregor after party, and was assisted by Abby Subhan in terms of video production. The scenes show McGregor living it up at his official after party, which should not have been hard as he didn’t absorb a single strike in his short bout with “Cowboy”.
By all accounts a title shot is next for McGregor. At the post fight press conference UFC president Dana White made it clear that McGregor will challenge for the title next, and the consensus is that that would also mean a rematch between the Irishman and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“When you look at what makes sense, we’re at a place right now where Conor was saying going into the Khabib fight (at UFC 229) – he had lot of personal stuff,” White said at the UFC 246 post fight press conference. “Some stuff (was) self-inflicted. He had injuries, he had all these things going on. He has been obsessed with getting that rematch because he knows he wasn’t 100 percent, right?
“When you look at this for Khabib, Khabib is 28-0. He’s undefeated. You start talking about this kid’s legacy. First of all, to go 28-0 in this sport? I don’t care who you’ve fought. It’s tough to do. Well, this guy is a world champion. After tonight, with how Khabib won the first time, and how famous Khabib has become since that first fight, we’re looking at Hagler-Hearns. We’re looking at Ali-Foreman (or) Ali-Frazier. This is a massive fight with global appeal. It’s the fight you make.”
