Conor McGregor outlines UFC 246 post-fight celebration plan ahead of Donald Cerrone clash
Conor McGregor has revealed he plans to indulge himself with some of his Proper No.12 Whiskey after he beats Donald Cerrone. The former two-division champion will be welcomed back to the Octagon by ‘Cowboy’ early on Sunday morning in the main event of UFC 246 in Las Vegas.

The UFC’s first simultaneous two-weight world champion is confident of picking up his first win in nearly three years, insisting he’ll put on a magical performance against ‘Cowboy’.
And he plans to reward himself with a few shots of his whiskey, which he’s abstained from drinking for the last few months.

“I was drinking all bleeding fight week,” he told ESPN. “I had venom in me or something.
“I had people holed up in a hotel and I would ring and arrange a fight, they would come to the gym and have a full-blown fight with no headguards.
