Life is good for UFC featherweight title contender Conor McGregor who’s become one of the sports biggest stars in a remarkably short space of time.
The Irish sensation has been scooping up major sponsorship deals in recent weeks, securing a deal with Bud Light in April, and now adding to that with his latest announcement that he’s also put pen to paper on a contract with Monster Energy.
McGregor is currently preparing for the biggest fight of his career as he faces current 145lb champion Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 189 in July which UFC president Dana White expects to be the most in-demand pay-per-view event of the year for the promotion.
Despite only being in the UFC for two years ‘Notorious’ is already getting a taste for the good life and on Twitter yesterday he was showing off the new mansion in Las Vegas that he now calls home.
“Today I hit Las Vegas with my coach John and my entire team from Ireland. My team since day 1. This is the evolution of fight preparation. I have secured myself and my team a 7 bedroom, 12,000 square foot gated estate, just off the Las Vegas strip. Welcome to The MAC Mansion.”
He included a video of his new place, and mighty impressive it is too.
Of course it’s almost certain that he’s just renting the home for the duration of his fight camp. As big as McGregor has become he’s not got that kind of earning potential yet, but there’s no doubt that McGregor’s bank balance will be bolstered considerably on July 11th if his fight with Aldo is as big of a PPV success as the UFC expects it to be.
